'Green' trees for sale

A SALE of “green” Christmas trees will be held at Caversham Court Gardens tomorrow (Saturday) from 9.30am to 10pm.

There will be different sizes of Scots pine grown without the use of chemicals on local heathland which is actively managed to restore the natural heather. The trees were self-sown and, if left to grow, would turn the heath into a pine forest.

Also on sale will be holly, mistletoe and fir cones from sustainable sources, cards and gifts from the RSPB, Fair Trade and the Reading Beekeepers. There will also be demonstrations by a willow worker.

The proceeds will go to the local conservation volunteers.
