It’s a big debate, real vs. artificial Christmas tree. We’ll stay out of that one, but here’s where you can find either type of tree in and around Geneva!
One very reliable, sustainable Christmas tree option in the Geneva region is Ecosapin. They offer beautiful, sustainably-sourced Nordmann firs, both cut and in pots, in various sizes. Within a certain radius, trees are delivered by bicycle, to minimize the impact on the environment, and – here’s the kicker – they can be retrieved by Ecosapin after the holidays. Trees in pots are replanted in Ecosapin’s nursery, and cut trees are recycled as biogas. Watch this video on how it all works!
Shop local at this organic farm in Geneva, Ferme Jaquet, that grows and sells GRTA-certified Christmas trees. GRTA is the State of Geneva’s stamp of local quality: Genève Région Terre Avenir, signifying quality, proximity, traceability, and fairness. You can already visit the farm and choose your Christmas tree, which will be reserved for you and made ready for pick-up from 27 November, opening day for buying Christmas trees on the farm. Prices range from CHF 40 to CHF 125, depending on the size of the tree. You can also buy tree stands, as well as fir branches for decoration (CHF 2/branch).
For those who place convenience above all else, Sapin et Decoration is another option. They offer a wide variety of real cut Nordmann firs, ranging from 80-100cm (starting at CHF 89) all the way to 350-400cm (CHF 549), which can be delivered directly to your doorstep. To top it off, they also offer a service to personalize and decorate the tree for you – or even your home – for an additional fee.
