June 2010 - New growth flushes through
Our Christmas tree plantations look wonderful at this time of year, the new growth buds are opening up and the trees are beginning to shoot up... and out! Nordmann Fir Christmas Trees grow up to one foot (30cm) a year, Norway Spruce Christmas Trees can grow up to two foot (60cm) a year, and Frazer Fir Christmas Trees are somewhere in the middle. The new growth is a beautiful light green, and is soft and delicate. As a result it makes tasty eating for rabbits, hares and deer so we have to keep our Christmas trees surrounded by protective fencing.
January 2010 - Recycling going strong
We have recycled several hundreds of Christmas trees this season. Well done to all of you for being so environmentally responsible. Christmas tree mulch makes for excellent green waste which can be biodegraded into compost or shredded into cuttings for parks and flowerbeds.
December 2009 - 8ft Nordman Fir Christmas Trees a very popular seller
Wow! Our 8ft Nordman Fir Christmas Trees are selling incredibly well. They seem to be an ideal size for most people's homes as they reach just below the ceiling but aren't too wide at the base. Children love to have a tree that dominates the room, and many are persuading their parents to get a mini tree for their bedroom. Lucky things!
20 November 2009 - Christmas tree harvest begins in earnest!
There are some people out there who just love to have an early Christmas tree, and why not, the Christmas tree brings such a wonderful festive atmosphere to the home or office. We have begun to harvest our first batch of trees, and will continue harvesting right through to Christmas!
