Christmas Tree Farms for Merry Sustainable Travel

What do Christmas trees and sustainable travel have in common? Quite a lot. Even though most people associate Christmas with long shopping lines, mangers, and the Salvation Army donation bell ringers, Christmas and sustainable travel actually go hand in hand. No Christmas is complete without a Christmas tree, and several Christmas tree farms have begun to practice sustainable farming practices. So this season, instead of dragging the kids to yet another sketchy used car lot- turned tree lot, make an adventure out of the task with sustainable travel to Krueger’s Christmas Trees.

Your quest for that perfect Christmas tree will satisfied in Lake Elmo, Minnesota- home to Krueger’s Christmas Trees. Conveniently located close to Minneapolis and St. Paul, Krueger’s Christmas Trees offers high quality and service. This family farm takes its farming techniques seriously, and has been for over 50 years. This tree farm values the ideals of sustainable farming by creating an enjoyable work environment for its workers and growing their trees in a way that works in harmony with the environment. One of their many efforts to practice sustainable farming techniques is through recycling. Krueger’s re- harvests its surplus supply of trees and urges customers to do the same. Krueger’s has even set up a system to take back any unwanted trees for customers residing in cities that do not recycle trees. Customers can just bring the unwanted tree back with no questions asked.

Another effort to spread the gospel of sustainability is through educational programs. Educators can call Krueger’s to schedule a farm tour, but not just any farm tour. The Krueger’s farm tour is strategically designed to educate children about the importance of trees in our ecosystem, forestry, and protecting the environment. Krueger’s will tailor the tour to the age of the group so that appropriate delivery of the message is possible.
For sustainable travel purposes in the coming weeks, Krueger’s Christmas Trees offers an exciting array of fun activities for the entire family. The farm sits on acres of beautiful land, so there are a number of nature walk routes that are perfect for a brisk winter walk amongst serene nature. Krueger’s Christmas Trees also features fun sleigh and wagon rides for an added dose of adventure at the tree farm. And if you prefer to sit back, sip warm apple cider, and relish in the holiday cheer, Krueger’s Christmas Trees invites you to do so inside or by a campfire.

The main attraction for this sustainable travel is the Christmas tree. Krueger’s Christmas Trees can show up to 300 trees at a time. Customers are given the choice to cut down their own trees or be shown trees. There is also a heated indoor show room to view 40 or 50 trees.

Krueger’s Christmas Trees is one of the many sustainable farms worth a visit this season. Support their efforts and find your perfect tree.
