Cross made from Christmas trees?

Posted on by royvickery |

The cross here was spotted outside Wesley Methodist Church in Queen’s Road, Reading, Berkshire, on 27 April 2018.  It appears to have been constructed from two trunks of two small coniferous trees, possibly Christmas trees.  The following day it had disappeared.

Is there a tradition of making Easter crosses from trees used the previous Christmas?
