Christmas websites     Send a link to a friend

[DEC. 10, 2004]  URBANA -- Help with the holidays, especially Christmas trees and poinsettia plants, is just a click of the mouse away, thanks to University of Illinois Extension. Two sites, "Christmas Trees & More" and "The Poinsettia Pages," can be very useful as people plan their holiday decorating, said Jane Scherer, U of I Extension urban programs specialist. User-friendly information about types of Christmas trees as well as the locations of tree farms in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Wisconsin is available on the website.

The sites are accessible from the Extension's Urban Programs Resources Network Web page at http://www.urbanext.uiuc.edu/.

"The Christmas tree and poinsettia sites are included in the 'Hort Corner' portion of the website," said Scherer. "Each site includes not only history, care, selection and facts about the two plants, but information on selection and care and frequently asked questions."

The Christmas tree site may be accessed directly at http://www.urbanext.uiuc.edu/trees/index.html and the poinsettia site is at http://www.urbanext.uiuc.edu/poinsettia/index.html.
