Unknowns to most, possibly, in Ireland we buy approximately 500,000 trees every year and it takes roughly 7 years to grow one tree.
At an average retail price of €30 – 40 thats not bad value 😉
Without getting into the horticultural technical stuff… [just for todays anyway] I like to go and help pick mine fresh from the field… something kinda Christmas-eeeee about it.
And thats exactly what I did this year once again…. except I didn’t choose the tree. In fact its the only time of the year I don’t 😉 I don’t do the decorating either…. Looks a bit bare without a selection box and wooly red reindeer jumper underneath, wouldn’t you say 😆 and yes I’m the Christmas star on top was the one my niece Lilly made for me last year 😉
As a by the way….. I’ll be putting these photos in the Bord Gáis Nollaig 09 Pix.ie folder. I went out on a photo walk with some really cool guys on Saturday and some of The Bord Gáis team [thank you ! ]- I’ll put my other Pix up there too…. feel like popping out and buying a reindeer now 😆
