What Can Happen With a Sign?
In short, fungus and parasites. If your beautiful Christmas tree begins to look weak, sick and with a needle scar, then you can bribe various fungus and parasites. So, after all, says a new Swedish study.
In the study, 21 Swedish nurseries were studied and more than 20 different pests and diseases were recorded that could harm the trees and cause them to decompress and bend the branches and peaks. In some cases, the death of an entire tree may occur, and can also be caused by the rejection of needles in live trees. Certainly you do not want to testify in your home.
Martin Pettersson, a scientist from the Swedish Institute of Agricultural Sciences, claims that a large number of Christmas trees are grown in nurseries, and therefore are exposed to various diseases of insects and various fungi.
"Generally, in Christmas tree nurseries, there are no more diseases than ordinary forests, but only the most beautiful tree can be sold," Pettersson said.
Sweden imports Christmas trees and seedlings, which is also a problem, according to Pettersson, because it is a new source of various diseases and aggressive pests.
He referred to as a problematic phytophthora, an organism that is like fungus and which is really difficult to destroy because it lives in the country and causes various problems in parts of the North American continent and affects the native Christmas growers.
Although many people think that the real Christmas tree is not ecologically acceptable, experts say that they are still much more acceptable than plastic. As opposed to trimmed fir trees or spruce trees, where we have to use the tricks to keep the plant fresh by immersing in water and keeping away from the heating elements, there is considered to be a much better option
It is proposed to buy wood with a bowed root removed along with earth because it is thus obtained a lively tree. As such, such a tree and needles will fall much less, and the tree can be transplanted into a pot or planted in front of the house.
