Newfangled Christmas Trees

A New Design Company Introduces Eco-Holiday Trees

By Mark B. Oliver | December 15, 2011

Festive Tree is a small innovative design company out of New Hampshire that has just launched its online store featuring unique, artisan built Holiday Trees.

A hybrid of sustainability and nature, these trees are the real deal and offer something that has been seriously lacking when it comes to Christmas trees: choice.

Crafted from genuine quality wood, these highly original, modern designs usher in a new age of celebratory symbols.

Owner and designer Mike Sanok says that he was inspired to create the trees as a way to counter the commercialism and waste of Christmas, with something simpler and more sustainable.

“Some people just don’t want a live Christmas tree anymore. Either their kids are grown or they want something different and more personal.”

Sanok believes that artificial trees, which are typically made in China from petroleum sub-products with lead based hazards, are even less of a desirable option for many.

Festive Tree offers a true alternative with its unique designs rooted in artistic and environmental integrity. This is a whole a new kind of holiday tree – one that is environmentally friendly, reusable, and versatile. No messy needles, and no driving around to find the right tree year after year.

Just as important, says Sanok, each tree is truly a piece of art that can be a family heirloom which will embody the shared memories of families.

Festive Tree designs are ideal because they honor the holiday season in a way that accommodates a variety of religious and cultural traditions – whether Christian, Jewish, Buddhist or Humanity in general.

Festive Trees are between three and four feet in height, can be completely dismantled and stored after the holidays, and are simple to put together as can be seen in this short instructional video.

The trees are extremely easy to put together as can be seen in this video.

Made of quality fine woods, three unique tree designs are offered this year: the People’s Tree($250), the Norwegian ($250), and the Puzzle Tree ($195).

For more information, contact the folks at Festive Tree, or order direct from their online store.
