Is a Christmas tree farm monoculture?
Definition of monoculture from Answers.com # The cultivation of a single crop on a farm or in a region or country. # A single, homogeneous culture without diversity or dissension. So you would have to say that if a Christmas tree farm exclusively grew the trees, it is a monoculture. If they were mixed with other plantings, that would be different.

Advantages of monoculture?
The advantage of a monoculture is that it allows huge amounts of food to be produced for our ever increasing population, and to be provided at affordable prices. This modern farming technique has also allowed farmers to greatly increase their profits, a far cry from the subsidence farming of the past. Farmers are now able to use the same plot of land but produce almost 100% more produce. Additionally, crops grown as a monoculture experience little competition for nutrients, sunlight and space from other species. A monoculture, also allows standardisation of planting, maintaining and harvesting of crops, which reduces waste and loss due to inefficiency. Nah bruh it don't specify enough
