Christmas Trees types
We grow various different types of premium Christmas trees and are one of the few farms in the South East able to offer a cut your own experience which is a fun outing for the whole family.
We also regularly supply trees to nearby film and television studios as well as major TV productions including Made in Chelsea, Call the Midwife and Eastenders.
With a quality, freshly cut tree you really get what you pay for.
No variety of Christmas tree is inherently ‘non drop’ the rate of needle drop experienced can be much more to do with how fresh a tree is rather than the variety of tree. Cheaper trees are often cut months before Christmas and then dry out, resulting in needle drop.
A real Christmas tree is better for the environment too! According to the British Christmas Tree Growers Association, one hectare of Christmas Trees will absorb six tonnes of carbon dioxide per year and will biodegrade once used. By contrast a plastic tree will take centuries to degrade in a landfill.
Nordmann Firs provide the classic Christmas tree shape and are easily the most popular choice of Christmas Tree in the UK. The needles are soft yet generously full to provide a plump, filled out tree.
We only sell premium grade Nordman Firs which are freshly cut and trimmed for a better shape and longer life.
Norway Spruce trees are for many people the quintessential Victorian Christmas tree and were the Christmas Tree of choice from the late 1880s onwards.
The thinner needles provide a more elegant tree shape and makes this variety of tree particularly well suited to showing off tree ornaments.
Norway Spruce trees are a less expensive alternative to Nordmann Firs as they grow at a much faster rate.
Norway Spruces give off a pleasant Christmas Tree scent.
An interesting alternative to all of our trees, the Blue Spruce is a bushy tree similar in appearance to a Nordmann Fir.
The needles of the Blue Spruce have a distinctive bluey green hue which is highly prized by those looking for a slightly alternative tree.
These trees are particularly prickly, definitely bring gloves if you plan to cut your own!
A relatively new planting on the farm. Fraser Firs have a good uniform pyramid shape with dense branches.
Fraser Firs carry a pleasing pine scent that makes them the tree of choice for many customers.
We have a variety of potted trees available for sale in varying sizes up to 6ft tall. Potted trees tend to retain their needles for longer but still suffer root damage as part of the potting process!
Our potted trees are dug with a small root ball rather than 'pot-grown', some customers successfully replant their trees, but we do not guarantee any potted tree will re-grow if planted out.
Buying Your Christmas Tree
We display our trees unwrapped on spikes so you can fully inspect the tree from all angles before you buy.
Once you've chosen your tree, one of our staff will net your tree for easy transport and help to load your car.
The vast majority of trees will easily fit into most cars. We do not offer a delivery service.
There is no need to book if you are visiting to buy a pre cut tree
Caring for your tree
A real Christmas Trees is a natural product and each one is unique. Please remember they are perishable products requiring care and attention and have a finite life. Looking after your Christmas Tree correctly is the most important way to reduce needle drop. If you have any concerns about your tree, please contact us as soon as possible.
- The most effective way to prolong your tree's life is to display it in a traditional reservoir stand and keep it topped up with water.
- Once home, it is best to stand your tree in water as soon as possible. Store it somewhere cool until you are ready to start decorating.
- Keep your tree away from direct heat sources. Placing your tree next to radiators and other heat sources will cause the needles to drop.
- Please keep your receipt. Christmas trees are perishable goods and non refundable. In the unlikely event your tree suffers unusually heavy needle loss we will offer a replacement tree subject to availability. We require any faulty tree to be returned to the farm for inspection. Any offer of a replacement tree is entirely at our discretion and will not be offered without proof of purchase.
- Our potted Christmas trees are harvested with a small portion of root, and not pot grown. There is no guarantee these trees will survive replanting and they are not sold as planting stock.
