It is a Christmas tradition for many families to go out to the forest during advent to select their Christmas tree and Christmas forests can be found in most parts of Iceland. Those less interested in a walk in the forest can also find sellers of already cut Icelandic Christmas trees.
The first forestry associations will be up and selling at the beginning of advent. Further information can be found online (in Icelandic) – http://www.skog.is/jolatrjaavefurinn/ – and on the website/Facebook pages of individual forestry associations.
Icelandic Christmas trees are freshly cut and environmentally friendly with a lower carbon footprint and by buying an Icelandic Christmas tree you support reforestation efforts in the country, because for every tree sold dozens more can be planted. There is no need to have a guilty conscience for felling the tree!
