Choosing your Christmas tree
Why is it better to buy a real Christmas tree?
There is nothing to beat having a real Christmas tree in your home for the lush colour and pleasant aroma that it provides.
NEEDLEFRESH trees have been carefully harvested by responsible growers, who will replace the tree by planting at least two young tree seedlings, either at the same site or nearby.
Our growers will spend up to 12 years caring for each tree, cultivating and pruning them to ensure you can buy a Fresh, Healthy & Attractive Christmas tree - it’s a labour of love.
In a field of Christmas trees,unlike other crops every tree is different. Once these are harvested it is up to you to select your perfect tree.
During its life there are many factors that influence a trees growth; Soil type, drainage, rainfall, and even height above sea level! The grower also has to protect the crop from pests and diseases. The plantations provide a perfect habitat for many birds and animals - but the grower has be careful they can also damage their precious crop. Go to the ‘where did my tree come from’ button and follow the instructions to get a real feel for the place where your tree was grown.
WHY NEEDLEFRESH? Back in 1996 a group of dedicated growers, who were interested in improving Christmas tree growing, came together to form NEEDLEFESH. The aim was to supply the best possible quality, fresh to the retailer direct from the Grower. Needlefresh trees are never sent to a wholesaler but cut, packed and delivered direct to the retail outlet within 4 days of harvesting.
Using the internet - we can now show you the actual area where your tree was planted and grown. Look for the unique tree number, which is on the NEEDLEFRESH Quality label. These unique numbers allows us to trace each tree right back to the place it was grown!
