|The tree from 2008
The Trafalgar Square Christmas tree is a tree donated from the city Oslo of Norway to London, as a symbol of gratitude and support from the British people during the second world war.
The tree is sent every year since 1947. Twelfth night after Christmas the tree became recycled and composed.
The tree gets gut down in the middle of November and sent to England by the sea. It is the mayor of Norway who cuts down the tree. At the platform were you can see the tree, you can read these words:
This tree is given by the city of Oslo as a token of Norwegian gratitude to the people of London for their assistance during the years 1940-45.
A tree has been given annually since 1947.
