When you choose a natural Christmas tree from a local farm, you do the planet a favor — and you give yourself a holiday treat, too. Christmas tree farms grow a completely renewable and recyclable resource which contains no petroleum products and leaves a very small carbon footprint.
Christmas trees are often grown on soil that doesn't support other crops, and their root systems serve to stabilize soil, protect area water quality and provide refuge for wildlife.

Wilson County Middle Tennessee Electric members will see their rates go down about four percent in December as TVA will reduce its Fuel Cost Adjustment for the sixth time since the first of the year.
However, the impact on member bills will depend on the amount of energy they use because the Fuel Cost Adjustment is a per kilowatt-hour charge. MTEMC based the four percent decrease on a 1,500 kilowatt-hour per month bill.
