WHAT IS FAIR TREES?
When I buy a Christmas tree, I need to know that it was grown under decent conditions. Christmas is all about reaching out. Fair Trees means a guilt-free Christmas.

WHY CHOOSE FAIR TREES?

The difference between a Fair Trade Christmas tree and a standard Christmas tree.

The majority of seeds for Christmas tree production originate in Georgia. Cone pickers climb pine trees of up to 30 meters, collecting seeds under risky and primitive conditions.

Fair Trees contributes to the improvement of local living conditions in Georgia.

Fair Trees is improving the working conditions for the Georgian cone pickers; they receive decent wages, safety training and climbing equipment of the highest EU standards.

Fair Trees ensures sustainability in every link of the production chain, from the tiniest organic seed to the eco-friendly growth of the Christmas tree.

The Fair Trees brand is your guarantee of a Christmas tree that is equally fair to people and to the environment.
