Christmas Trees
Topic posted by Liverbird ... dated:29 November 2009
Hi, I am hoping to buy a real christmas tree in the next week or so (I know its early!). I am looking to buy it locally, however I'm looking for a business which delivers. Has any one got any tips on where to try? Thanks

The trees are still there, uncollected, tonight.

The simplest solution, instead of waiting for Trafford to remove them, will probably be just  to chop them up and stuff them into the green bin.

Trafford council say...

Christmas tree collections

We have extra Christmas tree collection teams out on Saturday 12 January to collect your tree for recycling. Please leave your tree at the edge of your property for collection. If your tree has not been collected by 5pm on Saturday 12 Jan, please report it to report it online  or by calling 03330 035865.

There seem to be quite a lot of used Christmas trees on pavements and drives around the district.

The One Trafford bin calender tells us to put the tree, minus base and baubles, out next to the green bin on collection day and it will be taken away for composting. It is now four days past collection day but the trees are still there.

We were told that if we had too much general non-recyclable rubbish over Christmas we were to put it out in two small bags next to the grey bin on the first collection day after Christmas. Any bags put out other than on that day would not be collected.

Although it does not say so on the calender have the bin men interpreted it to mean Christmas trees also would also only be removed on the first collection day after Christmas, notwithstanding the fact that many people keep their Christmas decorations up until Epiphany?

They are selling Xmas trees from a container at the back of the Nags Head pub

From previous years, Parkers Garden Centre had a variety of tree sizes. They would 'wrap' the chosen tree with protective string and load it in your car. Might be worth a phone call.

Floribuda has tree's, might be worth phoning and seeing if they deliver, even if they don't the boss there is quite a nice bloke, might make an exception.

I agree, Brookedge nursery on Woodhouse Road.
 
I went last year and the owner followed me back to my house with the tree and carried it in for me.
So 5 mins after buying it, it was in the house - now that's service.

I have got mine from Florabunda , quite expensive £30  approx but always good, usually have a wooden base on, so no probs with getting to stand as straight as is possible.

The Garden Centre on Woodhouse Road, near the junction with Davyhulme Road sell and deliver for free your Christmas trees, I go there every year.
