Christmas Tree Collection

Check out the photos from the collection here!!

Important Info!

Our tree-riffic volunteers will be out and about this weekend (13 and 14 January) to collect your Christmas trees. With a record number of trees we are collecting this year there are a few ways you can help to make it a little bit easier for our volunteers.

We are unable to specify a collection day or time, so we ask that you ensure your tree is left in a clearly visibleaccessible and unobstructed location outside your property by 8am on Saturday 13 January 2024.

Our volunteers are unable, under any circumstance, to enter your property (e.g house, back garden, shed). If we cannot see your tree, we will leave a calling card to let you know we have visited.

If you tree hasn't been collected by the end of Monday 15 January please email us at or call 01935 709 485 before midday on Tuesday 16 January.
