Real Christmas Trees
We have the finest trees in the land and just because it sounds like a fairytale doesn’t mean it’s not true - Our Trees are the Real Deal
Few things rival the intoxicating scent of a fresh cut Christmas tree. While we joke around that Christmas trees aren’t rocket science - there is heaps that goes on behind the scenes to ensure that the tree that you receive is the freshest, fullest and highest quality specimen.
Despite what people may think, a real tree is actually better for the environment than an artificial tree. Firstly real trees absorb carbon dioxide from the air as they grow, as well as providing a habitat for wildlife. Secondly, an artificial tree is usually made from non recyclable plastic, which will sit in landfills for years and years once it has been thrown out.
With real Christmas trees, we advise that the width usually tends to be around 1/2 and 1/3 of the height of the tree, however the taller the tree the closer the 1/3 size.
In our opinion, nothing beats the smell of a fresh Christmas tree. The Nordman Fir and the Fraser Fir each have a lovely scent but it is quite subtle, unlike their more fragile cousin, the Norway Spruce, which has a beautiful strong fragrance.
Either the Nordman Fir or the Norway Spruce are suitable for outdoor use. For safety reasons we recommend erecting your tree in a Civic stand when it is situated outdoors.
Yes! Your Christmas tree is like a freshly cut flower, it needs water to survive. We can make life a little bit easier for you however with one of our water holding Christmas tree stands. A water holding stand gives the tree as much water as it may need.
Our trees are measured to half way up the leader (the large central stem at the top of the tree) rather than to the tip, ensuring you get excellent value for money. For more information, see our Quality Guarantee.
