How To Find The Perfect Christmas Tree For Your Business

How To Find The Perfect Christmas Tree For Your Business

Share/Bookmark

Christmas decorations are the perfect way to brighten up even the dullest of offices, and are ideal for bringing some festive cheer to employees in December. But if you find yourself tiring of bringing out the same tired tree year after year, it might be time for a change. Hiring a Christmas tree is often a wise choice for organisations looking to broaden their decorating horizons, but choosing the right company to rent from can often prove challenging. Here I give you a few tips on how to find the perfect Christmas tree for your business.

Check their track record

Not all Christmas tree companies have the same high levels of customer service, so make sure you do your research before splashing out on the perfect tree. They may not admit it, but some companies are very slow at delivery- I have a friend who ordered a tree for her office, and turned up on Christmas Eve as her employees were leaving the building! Look for a service with a history of reliability and promptness to ensure that your tree will turn up on time to be enjoyed by everyone. And don’t forget, the company should also collect the tree at the end of the holiday season.

Price isn’t everything

Granted, if you are a small business with a limited budget you are going to be looking for a tree that is attractive but above all affordable. Christmas tree hire companies often provide a cheaper option that will still brighten up your workplace. However, you should always remember that you get what you pay for in life, and sometimes you have to splash out a bit more to get the right effect. In fact, for large corporations that want to make a statement- like shopping centres and hotels- you can choose a bespoke service to create the perfect look.  This will come at a price, but the effect will be worth it.

Environment

All of us are environmentally conscious nowadays, but businesses in particular have a responsibility to think about the impact they have on the world.  If you are worried about the environmental implications of your Christmas tree hire, look for a provider that recycles all trees after they have been collected. Real trees can be shredded with the chippings recycled, whilst artificial trees can be used again the following year after a quick refurbishment. Even the greenest of eco warriors cannot complain about this method of disposal!

Safety first

The dreaded Health and Safety talk may be tiresome but unfortunately is also a necessity to protect your employees and your customers from harm. When choosing your Christmas tree hire company, pick one that offer a Risk Assessment and Method statement when installing your tree. This will ensure that your decorations do not obstruct any walkways, fire exits, or important notice boards. In addition, choose a tree that is flame retardant, and ensure that any LED lights are inspected before installation. All these steps will help you enjoy Christmas with complete peace of mind.

The World’s Oldest Tree

The World’s Oldest Tree

Share/Bookmark

oldest tree The World’s Oldest TreeEarth’s oldest living inhabitant “Methuselah” has reached the age of 4,768 years.

Of the many scenic wonders found within the Inyo National Forest, one of the most amazing is the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest, located between 10,000 and 11,000 ft. in the White Mountains, east of the Sierra Nevada. These trees are the oldest known living trees on earth. Here in the White Mountains, the ancient trees have survived more than 40 centuries, exceeding the age of the oldest Giant Sequoia by 1,500 years. For trees that old, one would expect giants, but Bristlecone pines look more like weathered dwarfs than like old giants. They add no more than an inch per century to their girth. The harsh climate above 10,000 ft elevation and very poor soil conditions don’t let things grow too big. As a matter of fact, Bristlecone pines are the only trees to have adapted to these conditions. That gives them a competitive edge allowing for a long and undisturbed life.

The above coordinates refer to “point 15? of the self-guided tour of the Methuselah Loop Trail. This point is called
The Ancient Forest. Each Bristlecone pine, from young seedling to ancient relic, has an individual character. And in the Ancient Forest, where trees had more than four and a half millennia to develop their character, each tree is a true individual. Every single tree in the Ancient Forest is at least 4,000 years old, many reach 4,500 years and the oldest one – Methuselah – has a confirmed age of 4,768 years which secured its place in the Guinness Book of World Records. In order to protect Methuselah from souvenir hunters and people who would just “love it to death,” the forest service does not disclose its location. It only hints that Methuselah is on of the trees right along the trail in the Ancient Forest. So, we took pictures of the most magnificent trees along that trail. Rest assured that each and every one of them is older than any other tree you have ever seen and that one of them is Methuselah.

If these trees could talk they would tell us what it means to be 4,600 years old:

“The oldest of us started growing at around the time when the Great Pyramid of Giza was completed (2600 BC). We were 600 years old when Stonehenge was completed (2000 BC) and 800 years at the beginning of the Bronze Age (1800 BC). When we were 1,100 years old (1500 BC) the Maya Civilization rose in Central America and when we were 1,300 years old (1300 BC), Moses lead the Hebrews from Eygpt to the land of Israel. Most of us were already 1,400 years old when the ancient Pueblo civilization rose in North America while at the same time, at the other end of the world, the Greeks fought in the Trojan War (1194 BC). We were 1,800 years old at the beginning of the Iron Age (800 BC) and some of us reached already 1,900 years when the city of Rome was founded (753 BC). We were close to 2,100 years old when Gautama Buddha achieved enlightenment and founded Buddhism in India. When we were 2,100 years old, China’s first emperor built the Great Wall of China (528 BC) and when we were 2,500 years old, Julius Caesar was born. We were 2,600 years old when Jesus Christ was born and 3,200 years old when Muhammad founded Islam (610). King William conquered England when we were 3,760 years old (1066) and Christoph Columbus landed in America when we were 4,370 years old (1492). We were almost 4,400 years old when the United States declared independence and had reached the age of 4,450 when California joined the Union. And we keep getting older still!
