How to Buy

Freshly cut trees 

Come and view our freshly cut Christmas trees in our brand new display area. We will have a vast array of trees for you to choose from in all types, shapes and sizes. We are cutting trees on a daily basis from our plantations, so we know you will be spoilt for choice. All our tree prices can be found here on our Pricing Page.

ANNOUNCEMENT: After a record breaking weekend of tree tagging our Nordman plantation next to the Tipi is now closed for tagging. But we are bringing thousands of freshly cut Nordmans in from our other plantation which is the other side of the farm for you to choose from on display in our yard. There are still plenty of Blue Spruces, Norways and Frazer Firs in the field for you to choose from. 

Tree types branches

We sell four main varieties of trees 

Nordman Fir

  • NORDMAN FIR: The most popular variety, these are generally very bushy, have thick needles and very good needle holding qualities. They are one of the slowest-growing varieties taking up to 9 year to reach 6’.

Frazer Fir
    • FRAZER FIR: Very good at holding its needles but are quite narrow which is perfect if you are limited on space. They have strong upward branches ideal for hanging heavy decorations. Frazers have quirky irregular shapes so no 2 are ever the same.

    Norway Spruce
    • NORWAY SPRUCE: The traditional Christmas Tree which many people associate with Christmas. This variety have tiny thin needles that used to have a bad reputation for dropping its needles but if kept watered and away from direct heat this tree will hold its needles very well.

    Blue Spruce
    • BLUE SPRUCE: Apart from its distinctive silvery blue colour this variety produces an amazing citrus aroma and is also good at holding its needles. The only draw back is that the needles tend to be more spiky than other varieties.

    Pot Grown Trees

    We also offer a selection of Pot Grown Christmas Trees with roots, these trees are ideal for both indoor and outdoor use. Being planted in their own pot allows you to water them often and you can also then plant them on in your garden after Christmas or keep them until next year. As your tree grows you will need to transfer them into a larger pot each year to allow for the roots to spread and the tree to continue to grow.

    Pot Grown Trees are limited to only smaller sizes, this is because the pot restricts the size of the rootball and therefore growth beyond a certain height. Their smaller sizes allow them to be displaying on tables, for gifts or around small children. All our prices can be found here.

    Choose from our plantations*

    If you can’t find your perfect tree in our display area, you can wander around our plantations, choose a tree and have it cut down then and there by one of our lovely staff members. 

    The plantation is closed when it is dark for the safety of our customers and staff. 

    PLEASE NOTE: This year we have a huge selection of Norway Spruce, Fraser Fir and Blue Spruce Christmas trees in the field right next to our sparkly Tipi Christmas shop, cafe and car park for you to look aroundDue to natural crop rotation and the unprecedented demand on our little family run farm during lockdown last year we do have limited numbers of Nordman Firs available within this field. We will still have plenty of Nordman’s on display in our newly expanded yard. These will be freshly cut on a daily basis from a plantation that is unfortunately not accessible to the public from the yard. There will be all shapes and sizes to choose from.*
