This year - think about your Christmas tree 🎄 .
Caring Christmas Trees are freshly-cut, grade 1 standard Nordman Firs, grown in Scotland in managed, sustainable tree farms 🎄
These trees are grown especially to be future Christmas trees 🎄
They don’t just go into the forest and chop down trees willy-nilly – their trees are grown as crops so once they are harvested more are replanted, which helps to manage our countryside and green spaces 🎄
Caring Christmas Trees are great for the environment, they produce oxygen when they are growing and when recycled after Christmas via a kerbside collection or at your local recycling centre they are as near to 100% Carbon Neutral as you’ll ever get 🎄
Nordman firs are the most popular type of Christmas tree because they retain their needles very well, have glossy, deep green foliage and are an attractive shape 🎄
The needles, which point forward and grow round the branches, are soft and thick with white lines on the underside; the bark is smooth and grey 🎄
They are sourced from members of the British Christmas Tree Growers Association who ensure high environmental standards 🎄
For tips on how to keep your tree in the best condition, visit Care of Christmas Trees on the British Christmas Tree Growers Association website 🎄
Patrick Moore, founder of Greenpeace says,
I often say that one way to protect the environment is to choose renewable materials and energy wherever possible. Artificial trees are made from non-renewable plastics and petroleum-based products. Although some people claim that these trees last a lifetime, most are thrown away within nine years – and remain in landfill sites for centuries 🎄
Roger Hay: British Christmas Tree Growers Association
‘Real Christmas trees are absolutely the solution to environmental sustainability. Absorbing Carbon Dioxide and giving off oxygen during the growing cycle, yet completely recyclable after use, the real tree compares with the artificial tree which is manufactured from plastic and metal on the other side of the world and will lie in a landfill site for 100’s of years. Think of the planet when you buy your tree.’ 🎄#christmas #christmastree

“A lot about being environmental is actually just about taking the time out and thinking, being a bit more prepared and actually once you’ve got the resources and once you’ve figured it out it is super easy.”
