Pick your very own festive tree from the popular Ballinasloe Christmas Tree Farm

Christmas is a very special occasion and will be treasured moreso this year when celebrating with family and loved ones - to that effect, erecting a real Christmas tree at the heart of your home is the ideal way to celebrate the festive season.

Have a traditional Christmas and visit Tom’s family farm on the outskirts of Ballinasloe (www.buyirishchristmastrees.com ) with your family to choose your special tree. Let all the family have their say in choosing the tree, then simply tie a ribbon on the tree you select and the staff will will cut it for you. You can take it away on the day or Tom will arrange to have it delivered to your home. It is truly a great day out in the fresh air enjoying nature and creating happy family memories.

Real Christmas trees have a negligible carbon footprint as they are produced by nature and travel very short distances between farm and household. They also help prevent global warming by removing CO2 from the atmosphere.

Christmas tree plantations, when harvested, are replanted with new trees, thus continuing the sustainable cycle of the crop. Plantations also promote biodiversity and provide food and shelter for birds and animals.

When finished with your Christmas tree simply take it to your local authority depot and they will recycle it for free. Recycled trees retain the carbon they captured from the atmosphere and provide mulch for landscaping and gardens helping to naturally control weeds, maintain the moisture and temperature of the soil and prevent soil compaction.

Next week, Tom will give readers essential tips on how to care and maintain your Christmas tree.

Should you choose, you don’t have to leave the comfort of your own home as the team at www.buyirishchristmastrees.com will select the tree most suited to you and deliver it to your door free of charge.

Due to Covid-19 visits to the farm are by appointment only. There is also a collection points at Dolans Centra at eircode listing H53Y5D0.
