You may have read my previous ponderings on getting an eco-friendly Christmas tree. I really was at a loss at the time as we couldn’t find a christmas tree service that would hire out a live tree..
But as with many things, letting them rest for a while to check them out later with fresh eyes did the trick! Yesterday, my better half and I were ready to buy a cut Christmas tree independent of its eco-credentials. We nearly went up to one of the local nurseries that offered free mulled wine while browsing (= very attractive offer!).
Then Google outdid itself (or, more likely, we finally must have used the correct search terms)! There it was, The Little Tree Company, offering Christmas tree hire across the UK. We didn’t hesitate and are expecting delivery of our Norway spruce this Wednesday. So, this tree will be in a pot, delivered and picked up again, and most importantly, very likely survive the stay in our home over Christmas. Result!
The only concession we had to accept is that the tree will be delivered over a long distance to get to us. But maybe next year more people will buy into the concept. Then either a local service will have opened up or a larger number of trees will be delivered in bulk to our area from The Little Tree Company. 🙂
I’ll be letting you know how we get on with our hired tree, but for now I’m off to dig out our Christmas decorations ready for Wednesday!
A festive goodbye, Rolaa.
