After last year's holiday season there was a huge bonfire, far into the rear of a Christmas tree farm in Elk Creek.
The plumes of smoke fell over miles of acreage. I observed this activity for days, making no mistake of the scent of pine burning.
Environmental Protection Agency Law prohibits burning of Christmas trees and tree parts, which are a hazardous environmental pollutant. The law is listed on the Federal Register No.1XC 04‑15448.
The root systems and foliage of trees absorb pesticides and herbicides used at the farms.
