Ban live trees

How many lives were saved because indoor smoking was banned? Why not go a step further and ban live Christmas trees indoors?

So many house fires start due to faulty wiring and overloaded breakers. How many firemen are endangered or killed because of this? Those who work in hospital burn units can tell you how many children die or suffer terrible burns. Is it worth it?

Artificial trees are the answer. They are beautiful, safe and reasonably priced. It would be well worth the lives and houses saved.

Let live trees stay in the forest where God put them.
