Carefully selected seedlings are lifted from our specialist nursery, packed in bundles and delivered to Needlefresh growers’ farms ready to be planted.
Over the years we have improved ways of planting our trees with specialist machines. Firstly, the soil is rotavated just prior to planting to provide a fine tilth. Seedlings are then loaded onto planting machines and, as they move along the field, the trees are placed in the ground. Each of these machines can plant up to 20 thousand seedlings per day. Once all the seedlings are planted we are then ready to begin the careful process of guaranteeing they receive the best care – resulting in the best trees.
Every tree has a story that starts many years before it reaches your home. Learn how our growers care for your Needlefresh Christmas tree throughout its life.
