Have you ever wondered how fake Christmas trees are made? Science Channel steps us through the entire process of how artificial tree makers develop a tree to hold your presents during the holiday season, from the metalwork to the artificial needles.

I seriously considered whether or not I should hit publish on this post a week after Christmas, but figured it was relevant as this was the first year I have ever had a fake Christmas tree. I’m sure I’m not the only one.

Watch the Science Channel’s ‘How Artificial Christmas Trees Are Made’ video above.
