It’s just not Christmas without a tree (or a wreath) – so we’re swinging by the Christmas Tree Stall to grab ours. This line-up of trees has been delivered to both our virtual and IRL markets by London-based florists, Moyses Stevens. Here, Quay Tran, buyer for Moyses Stevens, fills us in on their tree of choice, its sustainable credentials and what you can do with your tree come January…
Tell us about your trees.
“Our tree of choice is the Nordmann fir, a variety grown extensively in Denmark. We love it for its long-lasting, non-drop needles, festive scent and bushy, conical shape that is resilient to warmer temperatures.”
Your Nordmann firs are sustainably sourced. Why is this important?
“The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) promote sustainable forest management across the globe and sourcing FSC-certified trees is an important part of our vision for the future. After all, we want Christmas trees to remain a part of our festive plans for many years to come, right?”
What can we do with our trees come January?
“You can visit your local council’s website for information on when and where you can leave your tree – it’s often in a designated area, like a local park. Alternatively, there are lots of crafty things to do with your old tree: you can strip some of the needles to make fragrant potpourri, remove the branches to create insulated shelters for frost-sensitive plants, or even cut the trunk into slices and make cool, rustic coasters!”
