WHY GO REAL?
Our Christmas trees have been growing in our own plantations for at least 40 years and have been filtering the air and produce enough Oxygen for 30 people every year! Mulching the tree at the end of the season keeps your Christmas eco-friendly and carbon neutral! For ever tree we sell, we plant 5 on average!
For a modest collection fee we will recycle the tree you bought from us. The cut trees come back to begin a second career as wildlife shelter throughout the winter months; when the reindeer are turned out in spring the trees become their toys for the summer. The branches and tree stalks are then cut and made into our Speedolfs, as stocks require, and the remaining bits are burned. Even burning on our bonfire only releases the carbon stored during the tree’s lifetime, so is still very environmentally friendly.
Even the best artificial tree can never look, feel and smell as good as a real tree and has a realistic life span of 7 years in a home, followed by another 100 years as landfill!

COMMERCIAL AND LARGER TREES
We supply larger trees to many commercial customers, we can supply and deliver trees up to 20ft tall with our own transport, larger by arrangement.
Larger trees sell out quickly, so pre-ordering your tree with us before the season starts is a good idea.
We offer a service where we will deliver a tree (of any size), erect and decorate it with outdoor lights; and at the end of the season we will remove the tree for recycling. This is very popular with offices and shops, because they have the reassurance that their Christmas décor is not harming the environment, and they do not have the worry and expense of storage and disposal afterwards.
Outdoor LED lights, stands, brackets and tubs are available on request.
We grow and stock the two main types of Christmas trees:
- Nordman (non drop and have a mild pine smell).
- Norway Spruce (classic Christmas tree, ideal for cooler locations).
