Christmas trees for sale

Blackpool Council’s popular Christmas tree sale is back once again.

Residents can buy top quality Christmas trees at a knockdown price, with money raised from the sales going back into supporting recycling in Blackpool.

The Nordmann Fir trees are the top choice for indoor Christmas trees, due to not dropping many needles and having strong branches – and have been a hit with residents looking to buy a real Christmas tree over the last few years.

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, costing either £35 for a 6ft tree or £40 for a 7ft tree.

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

Cllr Fred Jackson, Blackpool Council’s Cabinet Member for Environmental Services and Highways, said: “Buying a Christmas tree from the tip helps to support recycling in Blackpool, with all the money raised going back into our waste services, as well as helping make a charitable contribution to the Mayor’s charities.

“I know a lot of residents were very happy with it last year and these trees make an ideal feature for your 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.”

This year, Trinity Hospice will be collecting Christmas trees on Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 January from the FY2, FY3, FY4 and FY5 areas in exchange for a donation. Please note that collections are subject to numbers.

Visit or telephone 01253 359362 to arrange your collection.

After these dates, trees can be brought to the tip on Bristol Avenue. The tip and re-use shop are both open Fridays to Wednesdays between 10am and 3.45pm.
