Blackpool’s Christmas Tree Sale is back!


Blackpool Council’s popular Christmas tree sale is back for a third year.

The Nordmann Fir trees are the top choice for indoor Christmas trees, due to not dropping many needles and having strong branches – and are now available at half the price of some major retailers.

The child and pet friendly Nordmann Firs are Britain’s biggest selling Christmas tree and are expected to be very popular

The Christmas trees are on sale from Blackpool Council’s re-use shop at the tip on Bristol Avenue, with prices either £30 for a tree up to 6ft or just £40 for a tree up to 7ft.

All trees also come with a free log stand and are netted for transportation.

Cllr Christine Wright, Blackpool Council’s cabinet member responsible for the re-use store, said: “The Christmas tree scheme is back due to popular demand and I know a lot of residents were very happy with it last year.

“The trees make an idea feature for you home this Christmas, at a bargain price.

“However we only have a limited amount and we expect them to sell out quickly – so don’t wait too long before coming to pick one up.”

Blackpool Council will also help recycle the trees once Christmas is over as part of our green bin collection service.

If your tree is larger than 6ft please cut them down to size to be collected.

The tip and re-use shop are both open Fridays to Wednesdays between 10am and 3.45pm.
