Look for an Evergreen Day

Look for an Evergreen Day is the perfect time to buy a Christmas tree if you haven’t already! Spruce, pine, fir are great for this. Many people prefer artificial structures, but they can never be compared with odorous plants. Do you agree?


The holiday was founded by tree growers (arborists). Their main goal is to draw people’s attention to the true beauty of trees, without the usual decorations. Unfortunately, we often forget that a plant does not need tinsel and flashlights to please the eye! The evergreen tree does not change its appearance for four seasons, but it is especially beautiful in winter: the snowy forest emphasizes the rich green color.

Researchers believe that conifers are descended from Devonian or Carboniferous trees. Perhaps their dawn began during the Jurassic period. As a rule, they reproduce by means of seeds, in the spring two types of cones appear – microstrobils (male) and megastrobils (female). At the top of the branches in the cells, ovules with eggs ripen.
