Nordman Fir

nordman fir2

This is the most popular Christmas tree in the UK. It has a classic Christmas tree shape, excellent needle retention and soft, long, dark green needles. It is pruned annually by hand to maintain it’s shape and improve density.

Norway Spruce

norway spruce

The traditional Christmas tree! When pruned, it has the ideal shape and density for a Christmas tree and is significantly less expensive than the Nordman and Fraser Fir. It is not as good at retaining needles as the other species, although if cut freshly and treated properly by putting it into a water holding stand, it will last well.

Fraser Fir

fraser fir

Often described as looking like a Norway Spruce, with the improved needle retention of a Nordman fir, this tree also smells divine! It can suffer from a less regular appearance than other varieties, although this is more than outweighed by it’s other qualities.

Lodgepole Pine

lodgepole pine

If you are looking for great needle retention at a low cost, then this is your tree! It has long green needles and a dense appearance although it sometimes does not conform to the neat conical shape of a traditional Christmas tree!
