Why Choose a Farm Fresh Christmas Tree?
A number of reasons, their scent is fantastic they make the house smell of Christmas coupled with the meaningful impact of a real tree. They look fabulous and really set your Christmas decorations off. Farm Fresh Trees are better for the environment and often your health, they are a renewable source, can be recycled as mulch, compost, or a wildlife shelter – they make fabulous Bug Hotels!
Farm Fresh Trees are as their title suggests, farmed often on marginal land (thus they do not contribute to deforestation) and absorb CO2 whilst growing. They key from an environmental standpoint is to avoid the tree going into landfill in the New Year, so utilise the Prince of Wales Hospice Tree recycling service, celebrate Christmas in style and do your bit for the environment – win win.
Which tree should I pick, Nordmann, or Fraser?
The Nordmann Fir, is the most popular real Christmas tree today, a non drop tree, with long stunning glossy soft dark green needles, strong branches in a traditional shape, which will last through into the New Year if kept in a tree stand which holds water and is maintained (with water). The average tree is 8 to 10 years old.
This is Mrs Copleys favourite! More compact/narrow bottom circumference but full tree but nice a tall. A similar shape to the Norway Spruce but doesn’t drop its needles, The most fragrant tree with the balsam scent than the Nordmann. The needles are dark green with a silver ting on the underside, plenty of space for lights and decorations to be evenly spaced from top to bottom.
However, at the end of the day it’s all down to personal preference and there’s nobody more fussy about their tree than Mrs C! So, call down to the farm, have a look through all the trees and let the boys (Jacob & Harry) ‘Walk the trees’ for you The Original Farmer Copley will also be there supervising!
