A handful of local businesses are now offering real Christmas trees for sale online, with a focus on quality and sustainability.
Le Chapin Chuisse, for example, offers a selection of Nordmann firs and spruce of different sizes, starting at CHF 46 for a one-metre, cut tree, as well as gift hampers loaded with a variety of Swiss products, for a truly local Christmas.
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 (for CHF 79, down from CHF 99) all the way to 350-400cm (CHF 549, down from CHF 649), which can be delivered directly at your doorstep. To top it off, they also offer a service to personalize and decorate the tree for you, for an additional fee.
One very reliable option in the 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.
