TREES AVAILABLE FROM 29th NOVEMBER 2014

NobelFirWe stock only premium shaped trees, ranging in height from 1ft to 30ft.

Our selection of trees are five main varieties - Nordman, Norway Spruce, Lodge Pole, Noble and Fraser Fir.

We have a selection of non-drop needle trees, although there will always be one or two left on the carpet on twelfth night.

We also have a small selection of potted as well as cut trees, so early purchase is recommended.

Don't forget to get your Christmas wreath, tree stand, decorations or mistletoe - we have a range of products available for you to purchase when you visit our Thrift Wood base. A good selection of decorations are already in stock.

Nordman
Nordman Fir

This is the most established and reliable of the needle-retaining varieties, at it's best and most consistent when grown from Ombrolaui seed stock.

It has quite large, gentle, rich green foliage with a silvery underside. Much research has been done and it can be regulated for leader growth.  (The leader is the top verticle spike upon which your star or fairy would be attached.)

This, combined with a good, soft pruning regime gives a regular and full shape.

Reasonably scented, its foliage grows from the top of the branches and tends to have a bare trunk.
NordmanFrond

Norway Spruce
Norway Spruce The traditional Christmas Tree with light green, short foliage. This tree tends to be sheared to give a compact and dense shape.

It has a good scent and fairly gentle needles, but is not renowned for its needle-retaining properties.

Norway Frond
Lodge Pole
Lodge Pole Traditionally one of the most popular Christmas trees varieties.

The Lodge Pole Pine has a very distinctive candle like shape and has excellent needle retention.

Lodge Pine Frond
Noble
NobleFir Noble trees have dark green upright needles and strong layered branches.

They also have the best needle retention of any tree and a wonderful smell.
Noble Frond
Fraser Fir
Fraser Fir Christmas Tree Bearing a shorter and slightly lighter green foliage than the Nordman, this is a nice and compact tree.

One of its 'quirks' is a slightly crooked leader. This is not a fault and indeed adds to the overall character of the tree.

It looks especially good in smaller sizes as the needle length is in proportion to the height of the tree.

It has very good needle retaining capabilities and gives off an attractive, citrus scent.
Fraser Fir Frond
Your tree is best stored outside your home until you are ready to decorate your tree - somewhere cool and dry.

When you get your tree home it is best to cut off approximately 1 inch (2½cm) from the bottom of your tree and give your tree plenty of water to drink.

Some of our christmas tree stands that we have on sale have an integral water reservoir allowing your tree to continue to drink even when in your home.

When positioning your tree, avoid radiators and heating systems close to your tree as this will help prolong the life of your tree.
