Christ­mas trees to get the chop as part of har­vest

Evening Express (City Final) - - Uk & Abroad -

A CHRIST­MAS tree har­vest in a North-east town has be­gun.

A team of 60 spe­cial­ist grow­ers have started the task of cut­ting down the trees over 480 acres of farm­land in El­lon.

Thomas Lun­den from the Green Team tree sup­plier said: “There is a real art to the tim­ing of the Christ­mas tree har­vest.

“We’ve been tend­ing to many of these trees for up to a decade, so there is a lot of pres­sure to make sure the fi­nal piece falls into place per­fectly with the har­vest. It takes an aw­ful lot of man power and some se­ri­ous ded­i­ca­tion to get the job done, but it’s so sat­is­fy­ing to see the trees that we planted so long ago be­come the stars of this year’s Christ­mas.”
