Why Fresh Christmas Trees Have Become Fashionable Again

There was a period when fresh cut Christmas trees went unwanted each year. You couldn’t even give them away as they had developed a misconceived reputation for causing all sorts of problems. The pendulum has swung and now they are back in fashion – in fact, artificial trees are now the product with a poor reputation.

Why are fresh cut Christmas trees fashionable again? There are any number of reasons. These range from environmental factors to traditional factors such as perfume. If you think about it, a living Christmas tree has a lot to offer our society, even if its role is small.

When it comes to the environment, cut Christmas trees come to the earth and return to the earth. They compost down reasonably quickly. Artificial trees can take decades to break down with some components never breaking down.

In your living room, a real Christmas tree doesn’t just sit in a corner and look pretty. Cut Christmas trees give off a wonderful perfume that gently wafts through the home, reminding everyone it is Christmas.

It’s only natural that real cut Christmas trees should once again become the fashion. The problem, of course, is that businesses like ours start to run to out of some stock well before Christmas – this is why we recommend placing your order as early as possible.

Most people now agree – you can’t have a traditional Christmas without a real cut Christmas tree – and we agree!

55 Days To Christmas – Have You Ordered Your Christmas Tree Yet?

popular Nordman Fir Christmas treeCan you believe there are only 55 days left until Christmas Day? The year seems to have flown by. With Christmas so close, have you given any thought to your Christmas tree this year? More importantly, have you put in an order yet?

Over the next few weeks we will be sending our potted and cut Christmas trees out around the country. Although we recommend you place your order as early as possible, we also recommend you wait until after the 23rd of this month (November) to take delivery – this maximizes needle retention.

Christmas trees are like any cut vegetation, they have an optimum ‘life’ span. With plenty of water and the right environment, our Christmas trees will give good service from the end of November through to Boxing Day. Potted trees will of course last much longer, particularly if left outdoors in the right environment until ready to be decorated.

As our Christmas trees are proving to be very popular, you don’t want to leave it until the last minute. Trees such as the Nordman Fir (pictured) are one of the most popular and can sell out quite early. By ordering, you ensure you not only get the tree you want, you can also get a tree to the height you require.
