In a statement titled ' Residents urged to think ahead before buying real Christmas trees', the local authority has urged people to think carefully about what tree they buy and how they are going to dispose of it.

If people want to have a real Christmas tree, we urge them to think ahead and plan how they intend to dispose of it.
