When growing Christmas trees, they absorb carbon dioxide 365 days of the year – up to 70 tonnes per hectare of carbon is absorbed by these trees. As well as that, they provide a fantastic environment for wildlife, flora, and fauna.
Not only are they purposely grown, but they are constantly being replaced. So although the trees are generally in place and then cut down, there are plenty of other fields planted up, and the cycle continues.
As well as the environment, they have a positive impact on the local economy. They employ many local people, seasonally to help harvest the trees which is a huge job. To Needlefresh it’s not a machine job, it’s something that involves individual attention which means people are in and around the trees all year round.
When you buy a Needlefresh Christmas tree you can find out exactly where it was grown because each label features a unique number. All you need to do it visit the website needlefresh.co.uk and type in the tree number.
