Alternatives to buying real Christmas trees in Hong Kong
Who says you need to have a green, conical, fir-inspired tree in the corner of your living room? You can use loads of different ideas to bring in twinkle and sparkle in unique and interesting ways.
To give you some inspiration, here are our top three alternative Christmas tree options.
Decorate a potted tree
Take yourself down to Mongkok Flower Market, find a sturdy-looking potted tree, take it home, and put the fairy lights and baubles on it. The great thing about this is you can keep the tree all year round to brighten your home.
Invisible Christmas tree
This might take a little effort and engineering, but it’s totally worth it for the stunning effect. Check out this video to see how to make one yourself and adapt it to your needs.
Tee Pee Christmas tree
Get timber or bamboo lengths and form them into a teepee shape, securing them with wire or rope at the apex. Wind fairy lights and tinsel around the beams to create a Christmas tree feel and pack the beams away once the festivities are over.
Christmas tree disposal in Hong Kong
If you do decide to go for a real Christmas tree this year, be sure to dispose of it properly. It’s really easy to do as long as you’re organized.
Here are some of the best ideas in town:
- The Hong Kong government has a free drop-off scheme where you can take your tree, and they will organize for it to be recycled, check out the details, and drop-off locations.
- If you’ve bought your tree from IKEA, they have a scheme to come to your home and collect it for recycling into gardening material. You might have been rather excited when you got your tree, so double-check your receipt to make sure you added this option.
- Got your tree from Anglo Chinese? They will come and collect your used Christmas tree for a small fee, be sure to organize this when you buy.
- Drop your tree off at Eco Park which is a recycling business park- while you’re there check out their visitors center.
To get rid of an artificial Christmas tree that’s in good condition, consider donating it. There will always be families arriving as you’re leaving the city, so passing it on to new Hong Kong residents is a kind gesture.
FAQs on where to buy Christmas trees
What size Christmas tree do I need?
The first thing to remember about a Christmas tree – the taller it is, the wider it will be. Once you take off the protective wrapping, the branches can take a couple of days to settle – don’t be fooled by slender-looking 7-footers. Measure your free space and take a tape measure when you go tree shopping. If your ceiling isn’t high but you want a tree with some height, consider putting a shorter tree on a table with a festive covering.
What are the most sustainable Christmas trees?
Real Christmas trees are seen as being sustainable because:
– Trees store carbon, so by chopping one down, you’re keeping that carbon stored – as long as you don’t burn the tree after.
– Real Christmas trees are easily recycled by being chipped and used for gardening purposes.
So, as long as you choose one from a sustainable farm that plants as many trees as they chop down, you’re not taking anything away from the ecosystem. Even if a tree ends up in a landfill, it will decompose quickly since it’s 100% natural.
On the flip side, a good quality artificial tree can have long-term positive impacts. An artificial tree can become more sustainable in the USA than a real tree after ten years of use.
What type of Christmas tree should I order?
Douglas fir – have the traditional cone shape you know and love and the needles should last a full month. However, they’re rather bushy, so your decorations can feel a little lost.
Balsam fir – Really good smelling tree and the needles are going to stay on for the whole holiday season. However, the branches aren’t very strong, so you can’t hang your heavier or glass ornaments on it.
Nordmann fir – Will fill your home with the scent of Christmas and the deep green color offers a lovely backdrop to your decorations. However, the foliage can be a little bottom-heavy and sparse up top.
