They support Carbon neutral farming by removing C02 from the atmosphere and adding oxygen.
Artificial trees are made mostly of plastic.
Artificial trees are shipped long distances mostly imported from China and have 10 times the average emissions of a real tree due to transport associated emissions and their manufacture from oil.
Supports a Local Economy
Real trees provide a livelihood for hundreds of farmers across Ireland dedicated to producing quality Christmas trees.
They are grown from nurseries for 3 to 4 years and for a further 6 to 10 years by farmers. Care for the real tree is provided by skilled workers and this provides a job stimulus in local economies in rural areas.
They add to Irelands export market. More trees are grown than there is home demand so they positively influence Ireland’s balance of trade.
They reduce the need for foreign imports of artificial trees, predominantly from China.
Real trees have a pine fragrance non-existent in artificial trees.
The different breeds of real Christmas tree provide a beautiful array of green shades that can’t be matched by the artificial market.
No two real trees are exactly the same – each one will have its own variation of colour, shape and size – so whichever one you choose will be uniquely yours.
You can’t beat the craic of having a good chat and haggle when buying your real tree. Here at Ballykelly Christmas Trees we love meeting customers, new and old, and it’s a great day out for the kids. We take great pride in providing a quality product for each customer that meets their individual needs.
