 HOW 'RENTAL CLAUS' ALL BEGAN

The company behind the idea, Cotswold Fir Forestry at Shurdington, near Cheltenham was created by Commercial Manager Craig Tennock and Horticultural Manager Paul Keene, both whom are owners, in 2012.

They were looking for a more sustainable, cost effective and unique alternative to cut Christmas trees… which sadly end up in landfill. Along with the other 7 million Christmas trees that are said to be discarded every year in the UK.
