Christmas tree trade in Lapland University of Applied Sciences

Contribution from: Lapland University of Applied Sciences, Finland (Tapio Sironen )

For decades the society of forest students (Rovaniemen Metsäpojat) has earned money for the society´s activities by selling Christmas trees at the market place. Nowadays they deliver Christmas trees straight to their customers´ homes. Because the students are only allowed to take undergrowth spuces in the state forrest, the Christmas trees are not of best quality. Mpumfeedzamuspo See the pictures below for an impression:

The days are short around the polar circle in December, so not much time per day to harvest Christmas trees!
