Are you thinking of buying a real Christmas tree this year? There is something very festive about going out and picking a real tree, spinning it around to check that it has a nice shape, with lots of lovely pine smelling branches!
A Real Tree
You can buy a real tree in a number of ways, cut off to place in a stand at home. Cut and attached to a wooden base, or fresh in a pot. Whichever you choose, you want to ensure you have a fresh tree.
It should look a lovely bright green colour.
If you give it a gentle shake, no excess of pine needles should drop off.
It shouldn’t have a bare trunk or branches.
If it is potted, inspect the root ball – to make sure it is not too dry or compacted.
Caring for the Christmas Tree
To ensure that the tree lasts through the festive season, it will need watering. Ideally place the tree somewhere warm and dry, but not directly next to a radiator or fire.
If you bought a potted tree, you can plant it out into the garden after Christmas, or place it in a new bigger pot with plenty of drainage and fresh soil for added nutrients.
If a fresh tree is disposed of properly, then it can be an environmentally sound choice, as it will have a smaller carbon foot-print than a plastic tree. A living tree stores carbon as it grows, what you don’t want to do is send it off to land-fill, where it would just decompose and let off methane gases. You can burn the tree (if you have the means to do this safely), or chop it up and use it as mulch for the garden. www.recyclenow.com/what-to-do-with/christmas-trees-1
The disadvantages to a faux tree, is that they are made from plastic, cannot be recycled and take a lot of carbon emissions to be produced. However, for many families they will be a good option. If you have a small space, want several trees, have pets or small children – then they are ideal. If you purchase the best tree you can afford, and then use it for at least 10-years, it will probably have a similar environmental footprint as having and burning a real tree for the same time period.
Some Christmas Tree Varieties – and why to choose them
Blue Spruce – Great for smaller spaces, with a lovely blue tinged colour. Strong branches, so holds heavier ornaments.
Fraser Fir – More popular in the USA, but liked for its pyramid shape, dark needles and silver colour undergrowth.
Lodgepole Pine – A traditional tree, great for not losing its needles! Lighter green/yellow colour.
Nordmann Fir – Although Russian, it’s actually the UK’s most popular Christmas tree variety. It’s very symmetrical, with branches that are strong, but spaced out enough to hold decorations.
Thank you, Ruth, for being so patient and kind on our call. You touched on things I needed to hear and I was so happy to hear from the one person I was seeking guidance from. I will be back. Your gift has opened my eyes up more than you know. Thank you xx
Thanks so much to John. I've had a few readings with John over this last year and he has really assisted me keep the faith in a situation that has all worked out as he said it would. His advice and insight was spot on and I can't thank you enough x.
Must report an astounding reading from John 5152. While I have been privileged to have received readings for many years and all have been so important this from John was more real than you could ever imagine. Relaying messages and comments that could only have come from those I once knew in life and are clearly unchanged in the other. Good work and so important. John has such an impressive gift.
I have had several readings with Karen, she has an amazing gift, her readings were spot on in every aspect, she is always cheerful and also a very caring person and has supported me with the loss of my husband. At times I was very down but after a reading with Karen I felt very positive. I can't thank you enough Karen you assisted me so much.
I have spoken to Mavis on several occasions and I have found her to be absolutely spot on with her guidance, it’s as though she knows me inside out. Mavis has given me a lot of support and I really enjoy my readings as everything she has told me has unfolded within days of our conversations. Mavis is not just a brilliant psychic she is I feel a friend who is there for me whenever I am worried or concerned about life's ups and downs. Thank you, Mavis you always amaze me, with your fabulous readings. Speak to you soon, xx.
I have spoken to Jasmine many times over the last few years. She feels like a very dear friend and is such a positive person and always uplifts my spirit. She has connected with my mum and dad and brought messages of great comfort. She mainly discusses future events and gives understanding to difficult situations. Jasmine delivers messages in ways I understand. No wonder she is always very busy.
Robbie is attuned to the high-level spirit realms and has a lot of knowledge about esoteric and spiritual subjects including ascended masters, angels and archangels. He connected to me quickly and gave many deep insights. He is also an author – has written a few books on specialised spiritual subjects. I was impressed with his reading. Thank you very much and God bless you. Hope what you predicted comes to pass, Jenny x.
Thank you most sincerely for the information you channelled to me yesterday. It confirmed that my late wife is often close to me and it has enabled me to stabilise my relationship with my partner in the way she wants, namely to a less intense level. I shall call you (Julie) again soon.
Ellie's recent reading was very impressive. She brought through no less than four people passed over to spirit for me, 2 of those were spirit guides! I am absolutely certain she can see and hear spirit directly, had good evidence of that. Plus, she solved the mystery of who cracked the blue glass ashtray in our kitchen. Ellie is a strong medium who lives abroad, however she is very English sounding (London/South East accent) and blends her excellent gifts with humour. Thank you very much. God bless from Jenny, xx.
