I've been hearing this question a lot lately since the snow storm that decimated the trees in Eretz Yisrael. According to an Arutz Sheva news report: "Even the hundreds of thousands of dollars' worth of Christmas trees were also damaged in the storm."
Christmas trees grown in Israel? And that's not all...
KKL-JNF Christmas Tree Distribution 2013
In keeping with its annual tradition, KKL-JNF will once again be distributing Christmas trees to local churches, monasteries, convents, embassies, foreign journalists and the general public as the holiday approaches. Distribution will take place in central and northern Israel, in accordance with lists provided by the Ministry of the Interior, the Municipality of Jerusalem and other bodies. Private individuals, too, can buy a tree for the token sum of 80 NIS.
Jerusalem Municipality to provide free Christmas trees to Christian residents
The Jerusalem Municipality, in coordination with the Jewish National Fund, will distribute free Christmas trees to Christian residents of the city on Sunday between 9:00 a.m. and noon at College Des Freres - De La Salle High School, located at 20 Bab El-Jadid Road. According to the municipality, the trees will be given on a first come, first served basis.
I mean, don't xians in xian lands have to BUY their own trees? Leave it to the (self-hating) Jews to try and be holier than the pope.
Anyway, this is the holiday season which features a dressed-up tree as its centerpiece and here we have a LOT of damaged trees and not just in Israel.

Our Holy Torah is called a Tree of Life. Maybe this is a reminder to abandon trees dressed like this...
And instead center our lives, every single day, around the tree dressed like this...
'It is a tree of life to those who take hold of it,
and those who support it are fortunate'
