Just in the UK, about 8m Christmas trees are sold, the average tree taking around 8 years to grow. So at any one time there's about 70m trees growing in England. Yet, after much study, real trees are considered slightly more environmentally friendly than the fake ones, depending on just how long you keep it for. However, this gallery is all about the after Xmas destruction of trees that were perfectly happy in the ground a month before. Mostly shot in London over several seasons. A couple of little things for you to think about. The average tree has about 30,000 bugs on ! And scientists are trying to develop trees using phosphorescent cells from jellyfish, thus helping the tree itself, glow in the dark !
