Our "Green" Christmas Tree


Cynic that I am about the politics of global warming, I can't help boasting about finding a bargain. Just like people talk about "food miles" I can now demonstrate "tree miles". Our tree was cut down yesterday at Langford Christmas Tree Farm, about two miles as the crow flies or four miles by road from our home. But what really makes the difference from those trees shipped hundreds of miles, having been harvested three weeks ago, is the price. £4/foot - What a bargain!

Incidentally, the tree farm has a rather nice poem displayed on their wall that espouses the difference between a real tree and a plastic one!
