Eco Christmas Tree with One Two Tree

The humble Christmas Tree is such a big part of Christmas. And there are so many fabulous ways you can go to create a tree to suit you and your family. We have always had a living tree. Even back as a little girl and sometimes my mum would just cut a branch off a gum tree in our backyard, or we would go out into the country where we lived in South Australia, and cut a branch from a local pine tree. I have bought cut trees from charity organisations and had potted living trees, which we put in the ground later. One year I made a recycled tree with branches. What is your Christmas tree this year? I shared this business a while back and loved their tree so much I bought one myself! Made in Australia from sustainable timber, One Two Tree is the eco-friendly alternative to ugly artificial Christmas trees and is a fabulous Australian made wooden Christmas Tree. I have a potted native tree – the Woolly Bush, this year and I also add the One Two Tree Wooden Christmas Tree to our dining room for extra cheer! The benefit of a wooden tree is that you can reuse it year after year, but at the end of its life it is not a plastic problem, as with the traditionally used artificial trees.

One Two Tree - eco friendly Christmas Tree

One Two Tree – eco friendly Christmas Tree

Featuring a contemporary design One Two Tree is an easy to assemble hand-crafted wooden tree – made from sustainable Australian timbers, Hoop Pine and Tasmanian Oak.

When it came to celebrating their family Christmas with a young child One Two Tree creators Lucy McNamara and Antony Aris searched for a stylish alternative to plantation and plastic Christmas trees. They struggled to find a tree that was compact, suited their style and could withstand their two year old tornado Ziggy. Antony (a landscaper) had been working with hoop pine slats on a project and made a makeshift tree from the offcuts, and they have used it every year since. When friends kept asking for a tree of their own, the entrepreneurial couple realised there was a market for their design, and One Two Tree was born. Standing 85cm when assembled, One Two Tree is perfectly proportioned for apartments and the ideal focal point for a mantelpiece or foyer in larger homes.

    Twigs from the garden, old jewellery, remnants from Christmases past.

    ———————————————————
    At desisting from tree making I’m afraid I failed
    But this one’s on a smaller scale
    A few old sticks and twisted vine
    Another original Woods design.
    Very basic and plainly made
    A trinket box I decided to raid
    Through the treasures having to sift
    For a subtle colour lift.
    Some old earrings, with clips to attach
    A gold necklace with a broken catch
    Copper beads not fit to wear
    Coming from I don’t know where.
    In their heyday these pieces so fine
    Now have another chance to shine
    Nothing valuable or antique
    Might be just a bit unique.
    Didn’t have to travel far
    To find that oversized golden star
    A relic from another year
    Just happened to be quite near!
    It’s not shiny or tinsel bright
    And not blinding with its lights
    Just made from things I like to keep
    Very quick and really cheap!
