Show us your quirky Christmas trees

LISMORE embraced its quirkiness last week unveiling a new recycled bicycle Christmas tree but its not the only unique tree around the Northern Rivers.

One of the latest reveals comes from long-time South Lismore business Pirlo’s Tyre Centre.

Facebook user Debbie Bailey took a photo of the four metre tall tyre structure and posted it on social media.

Lismore Mayor Jenny Dowell shared the photo on her Facebook page, throwing down the gauntlet for other businesses to show their quirky trees.

“Good on you Pirlo's,” Cr Dowell posted.

“Now how about other businesses doing something similar.”

Tony Martin saw the post and suggested quirky Christmas trees become an annual feature of the Northern Rivers every festive season.

“Jenny, idea for next Christmas,” he posted.

“Lismore wide competition for the best tree, made from recycled products.”

Cr Dowell confirmed council was already talking about the possibility of a Christmas 2016 competition.

A house on the Pacific Highway at Broadwater has an impressive tree that lights up the night.

One Northern Star reader has submitted photos of her Christmas tree she made from recycled fence palings.

A Lismore book store has created an impressive shop front Christmas tree from books wrapped in traditional tinsel and baubles.
