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.
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.
Do you have an upcycled Christmas Tree, or a Recycled Christmas Tree? Or are you more a classic living tree kinda person? Or maybe you have one that you use every year and it is full of memories? I would love to hear what you are doing this year, so please drop a comment!
