Fashioned after the Antique German Feather Tree!
Feather Christmas Trees were first created in Germany in the 1880's.
These first artificial trees were in a response to growing concerns concerning the deforestation associated with the harvest of Christmas Trees in Germany.
Feather trees were initially made of Green-Dyed Goose Feathers which were attached to wire branches. The feathers were split and then secured with wire to form the branches. These wire branches were then wrapped around a central wood branch or stick for the trunk. The branches were widely spaced to keep the candles that were placed on the tree, from starting a fire.
The tradition of Feather Christmas Trees was brought to the United States by German Immigrants in places such as Pennsylvania and Texas.
