Sustainable Practice

Garrocher Christmas Tree Ecosystem

  • Every year that we cut down trees to sell at Christmas, we are planting more to replace them. It is a sustainable practice.
  • They benefit the enviroment through cleansing the air, and supporting wildlife. They are generally on higher elevations, and attract birds such as grouse and pheasant.
  • They also provide welcome shelter for creatures on more exposed ground.
  • As the trees fill out, the plantations provide nesting sites for small birds.  In spring and summer hover flies feed off the trees.  They also attract butterflies and moths.
  • Real trees are carbon-neutral.
