THE BIG TREE DEBATE - ARTIFICIAL VS REAL
Well, I say ‘Big Debate’ but it’s really a very short debate. Real is best. We all know it. Even the people who think plastic is fantastic must secretly spend the entire festive period trying to convince themselves, and the numerous visitors who descend on their home, that their Christmas is enhanced by the plastic and metal imposter sitting in the corner.
But you would expect me to say that, wouldn’t you? As a grower of trees, I spend a worryingly large amount of time coaxing my trees to grow into fine specimens and admiring those that do make it to a saleable standard. To me, a real tree is such a fundamental part of the Christmas experience that not having one would be like serving your turkey without bread sauce. And we all like bread sauce, don’t we?
