Grading and Labeling
While the sun is shining in August/ September the Needlefresh Team can be seen out on the hills grading and labelling trees for the the coming Christmas. With millions of trees to choose from this task is not easy. The trees are measured to anticipate the years growth and the pruning is once again done by hand to shape the tree. The label, giving the tree its unique number, is attached to the leader. From this time on, it can be tracked.

Needlefreshs' Descriptive label
In the late summer/ early autumn we start marking our trees with the customers unique label or our own colour coded label which shows the type and size of tree, style of tree (cut/potted etc), care instructions and a bar code. Look out for them instore as they indicate that the tree has been grown according to the Needlfresh code of practice
