My parents are finally visiting for the holidays and I am inspired to find a live tree. Do "cut-your-own" tree farms exist within driving distance to Paris? If not, any ideas on the best place to find a live tree?Thanks.

monceau fleurs always have them, in Paris proper, otherwise the covered plant market on the ile de cité; they all appear quite late though - so don't despair; they will make their festive appearance early december

See this thread from last year for some other ideas: http://paris.angloinfo.com/forum/topic.asp?topic_id=1135

I have a country house in Haute Normandie and in my village of barely 80 souls there is a fir tree farm. I personally have bought from them with a root ball instead of 'cut'. Norwegian blue is my favourite. It cost me last year around €40.
I'll make enquiries for you if you want.

This will be the first year I buy a real tree. Can someone suggest a species that doesn't shed needles?

If you have a garden and don't let the tree dry out too much.

They ALL shed their needles; some more some less. You can buy sprays from florists shop to prevent some of the dropping.

Thanks for all of the ideas for finding a live tree! Elaine, I am not sure if we'll have the time to travel to Haute Normandie for a tree, but I'd be interested in contact information for the tree farm in any case if you have a moment..thanks! If we stay in the city, looks like I'll check out Monceau Fleurs or IKEA. Thanks again.

Is there anywhere in paris you can recycle real xmas trees once they are finished with?

To my knowledge, only Ikea recycle (they say so at least). Few trees even with a root ball, survive the punishment given them over the festive period. Let's be frank - most end up in an incinerator!

No I mean a place where you can have the tree chopped into shrapnel that can then be used for other purposes. I saw a centre like that in the UK.
