The Norfolk Island Pine is actually a large house plant or tree that has the potential to live a good long life. With proper care, we hope our tree will stay green after Christmas for as long as possible, and be decorated for other holidays throughout the year.
We have had "real" cut trees and artificial Christmas Trees during the years our children were growing up, but decided to downsize to a good sized Norfolk Island Pine when the children moved out. Our house is small and this alternative is a good one for us.
Let me introduce you to the Norfolk Island Pine, information on caring for a Norfolk Island Pine, and if you like the idea, how to decorate a Norfolk Island Pine for the holidays.
