The Festive Forest was founded in Glasgow in 2020. They are committed to bringing customers a wide range of prime grade Christmas Trees selected from sustainable tree growers right here in Scotland.

​Sustainability and community is at the heart of the business which is why a percentage of each tree sold goes to their affiliated charities, Tree Aid and Spirit Aid.

Their partnership with Spirit Aid will see profits donated towards the Christmas Toy and Food Hamper Appeal. This money will go to families feeling hardship this winter in Glasgow and the surrounding areas, providing families with food, toys and goods that they normally wouldn’t see at Christmas time.

Spirit Aid is a Scottish humanitarian relief organisation – founded in 2001 by David Hayman – dedicated to alleviating the suffering of children and young people whose lives have been affected by poverty, neglect, abuse, lack of opportunity, humanitarian crisis or even blighted by war.

Their partnership with Tree Aid will see profits donated to maintaining a sustainable earth. Each tree that is purchased from The Festive Forest will see one tree planted in Africa.

Tree Aid’s vision is creating sustainable communities across the drylands of Africa. They believe that tackling poverty and protecting the environment are inseparable which is why they work together with local people to grow trees and restore land, to fight poverty and the effects of the climate crisis.

Tree Aid was established as a charity in 1987 by foresters in response to famine in Ethiopia. They wanted to provide a long-term solution once emergency relief efforts ended. They believed that trees offered exactly that – and they were right.

Since then, the charity has worked with over 1.8 million people living in the drylands of Africa to grow over 22 million trees so that they can live from them for years to come.
