Here at Bellasize Christmas Trees we offer a friendly and knowledgeable service. We will do everything we can to help you choose your perfect tree. We don’t think anything can beat the smell and appearance of a real Christmas tree, but there are also many other benefits of a real tree compared to an artificial one.
For a start, real Christmas trees are a lot more environmentally friendly. While they are growing, real Christmas trees are constantly absorbing carbon dioxide and other gases from the atmosphere and emitting fresh oxygen. This means that a higher demand for trees each year is actually good for the environment as farmers will plant 1 to 3 seedlings for every tree that they harvest. As opposed to artificial Christmas trees which are larger produced in china and then shipped over. The actual manufacturing process involves using harmful chemical and non-biodegradable materials. The transportation from overseas also uses oil and fuel which in turn creates emissions. Once an artificial tree is disposed of it will lay in a landfill for centuries. However, real Christmas trees can be recycled with many councils providing a pick-up service after the festive period is over.
Picking out a Christmas tree as a family is a great experience, you can easily make it a festive tradition and a treat for the children…..and adults. Having a real Christmas tree in your home is also believed to be calming. The smell of the real tree, the calming colour, and the presence of something living in your home has psychological benefits.
Whatever shape tree you have in mind, we’re sure we can help you find the perfect one for you. Our Norway Spruces are the more traditional species of tree, they are full bodied and bushy. If you’re worried about needles dropping we have a large range of Nordmann Firs and Fraser Firs which are well known for their excellent needle retention.
Every Christmas people find themselves stuck between whether to have a real tree or an artificial one. We believe that once you’ve had a real tree you won’t go back to artificial.
