It’s the most wonderful time of the year and Green Elf Trees are working to deliver real sustainable Christmas trees straight to your doorstep with a sprinkle of music magic.

No Christmas is complete without a tree as a centre piece to your celebrations.

Not sure why a real Christmas tree is greener than a sustainable one? Read here.

Green Elf Trees are safely delivering high quality trees whilst providing opportunities to out of work entertainers and musicians.

This service also contributes £3 of each purchase to selected charities including DogsTrust, Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity and Shelter.

The trees are sustainably sourced from Jadcliffe, a grower recognised by British Christmas Tree Growers Association, and range from £35 - £80.

Do you need to order a Christmas tree?

You can select from potted or planted to cater for your various festive needs.

Green Elf Trees are a one-stop-shop for sustainable decorations too, where all trinkets and treasures to top your tree are available to purchase and only derived from glass or wood.

Why does this matter? Close to two thirds of UK households opt for plastic artificial trees which can only ever end up in landfill, where they do not biodegrade.

The positive impact of a properly disposed of tree has a carbon footprint ten times smaller than that of an artificial breed that takes hundreds of years to decompose!

Green Elf Trees make sure their Christmas tree delivery is carbon neutral

The company are keen to minimise any environmental impact of the service and have committed to offsetting their deliveries, investing an additional 50% to guarantee the operations are carbon negative.

The Green Elf team encourage responsible consumption and have published a detailed tree care guide and provide responsible removal in the new year for a small fee of £15.
