One of the most memorable and fun parts of Christmas is choosing and decorating the Christmas tree. You may have had a favourite artificial tree for years that you keep pulling out each year. Have you thought about swapping for a live Christmas tree this year? Having a lovely smelling real tree in the house is a great way to get everyone in the Christmas spirit. Luckily Adelaide has a great selection of suppliers for you to choose from.
Your Christmas tree is a focal point of the house at this special time of the year. Why should you choose a real Christmas tree over an artificial one? Here are our reasons:
- Picking a real tree is so much fun. Think how peaceful it would be wondering isles and isles of living trees on a farm compared to the crazy busy shopping centre isles at this time of year.
- Your house will be full of lovely pine needle smell.
- Each real tree is unique and each year you are challenged to find just the right places for your decorations. You can create a distinctive look each year.
- After Christmas, you can compost your tree. You do not need to find space to store for next year.
So now that you have decided a real Christmas tree is the way to go, you need to start planning. Choose a spot for the tree that does not receive too much direct sunlight. The tree may drop needles so keep this in mind when you are choosing the spot. You will need to access the base every day to top up the water as cut trees get very thirsty!
