Merry Christmas 2013!
That time of year approaches as we get ready for Christmas 2013. Over the past four years, CarbonSync™ has developed the world’s greenest Christmas trees.
Carbon makes up half of the dry weight of wood. A typical six year old 6′ cut Christmas tree weighs 4.5 kg and stores over 2.2 kg of carbon. Mulching the tree after Christmas improves soil development. Converting the wood to biochar preserves the carbon while improving the soil. We mulch, make biochar, and make productive soil for gardens from Christmas tree waste.
CarbonSync™ is the expert in green Christmas trees. We have delivered hundreds of live and cut trees in Greater Vancouver and the Sea to Sky corridor. Check out the options available in our shop:
- For the most environmentally friendly and affordable Christmas tree, grow your own in a pot. Bring it inside every Christmas, and reuse it until the tree grows too big and needs planting. After planting the old tree, start again. CarbonSync™ provides live potted trees.
- Another environmentally friendlyoption is to hike and cut your own tree. Get a permit to do it yourself. Convert the tree to mulch or biochar and supplement the carbon in your garden.
- Let CarbonSync™ deliver your tree. Worth the cost! We are the experts at delivering your tree and installing it. A certified arborist selects your tree. It’s cut that day, and delivered to your living room. Our professional staff deliver and pick up each tree. All prices include delivery and collection. Cut trees are mulched or processed into biochar, the most environmentally friendly option.
Everyone loves CarbonSync™!

You can get a live Christmas tree and not have to plant it after the holidays. A new drop-off/pick-up live tree delivery service might be the greenest idea yet. -CTV
Referenced by David Suzuki
Even David Suzuki likes CarbonSync™:
Speaking of trees, I’m often asked whether it’s better to use real or artificial Christmas trees. A life-cycle assessment study conducted by sustainability research firm Ellipsos inc. found that real trees are better for the environment overall than fake trees. In Vancouver, the CarbonSync™ organization will even rent you a potted tree that they will deliver and pick up after Christmas and plant, with some of the proceeds going to the Burns Bog Conservation Society. -David Suzuki

Highlighted in the Chief
The Chief ran a special story on CarbonSync™:
One look at his mighty hands says a lot about Brad Major’s work. His business, CarbonSync, offers year-round tree services, with a special emphasis on environmentally friendly Christmas trees. Major’s large hands are matched by his rugby-player build and his outdoorsman’s jawline. He applies his strengths to the management side of business as well as tree work operations. -The Chief
