Council to consider replacing traditional trees with artificial trees

Council to consider replacing traditional trees with artificial trees

Councillors later this week will discuss the option to replace traditional trees with artificial trees and to also consider the provision of Christmas trees to smaller rural settlements.

Back in December of last year Mayor of Causeway Coast And Glens Council, Councillor Richard Holmes asked for a report on the feasibility and cost of changing Councils policy regarding public Christmas trees.  The move followed a question by a pupil during a visit at Ballykelly Primary School.  

A section of a report presented to members of the Environmental Services Committee this Tuesday evening reads "The proposed artificial trees are at the ‘upper end’ in terms of quality and appearance comparing favorably to natural trees hence their cost. Cheaper trees are available but as the price comes down so does the quality and resemblance to real trees."
