CHRISTMAS TREES

THIS IS WHERE YOU'LL  FIND ALL THE INFORMATION YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT SELECTING THE PERFECT TREE AND GETTING THE VERY BEST OUT OF IT DURING THE CHRISTMAS SEASON

 

CHOOSE FROM 4 BEAUTIFUL VARIETIES

SCOTS PINE

The Scots or Scotch Pine has been widely planted for the purpose of producing Christmas trees. This tree is great for Christmas, it’s known for having excellent needle retention as they do not fall, even when dry. It also has stiff branches which are well suited for decorating with both light and heavy ornaments. The Scots Pine has character - it’s quirky, it does not always grow in a perfect cone shape.

  • Darkest green

  • Medium fragrance

  • Strong branches for easy decoration

NORWAY SPRUCE

The Norway Spruce is considered to be the traditional Christmas tree. It has a very structured pyramid shape, along with a fresh Christmas scent. The needles are dark in colour and can be prickly to touch, but the stiff branches make it great for decorating purposes. This premium quality tree is perfect for the festive season.

  • Tradition green

  • Medium fragrance

  • Rigid branches

NORDMAN FIR

The Nordman Fir is widely considered to be the most popular Christmas tree. It is known for having an aesthetically appealing symmetrical shape. The Nordman Fir has mid green shiny and soft needles, which makes it suitable for small children. It can be quite wide, so a reasonable amount of space will be needed to fully show off this tree.

  • Shiny deep green look

  • Superior needle retention 

  • Low fragrance

FRASER FIR

The Fraser Fir is Whelly Hill Farms most popular tree, our customers love the pyramid shape and Christmas fragrance. This premium quality tree has soft foliage, which makes it suitable for all members of the family to decorate. The Fraser Fir is narrow in shape, making it ideal for customers with limited space.

  • Green with a yellow tint

  • Strong fragrance 

  • Strong beaches for easy decoration

YOUR REAL TREE

HERE'S OUR TOP TREE TIPS

  1. Choose the variety which best meets your needs

  2. Get the right height, remember that a stand adds a further 15cm to the overall tree height

  3. Once home, cut 2-3 cm from the stump straight across using a handsaw

  4. Keep the net in place until the tree's in it's final position

  5. Leave to settle for 24 hours before decorating

  6. Use a water holding tree stand - available from us

  7. Add water daily - central heating makes them thirsty

  8. A cool location is best - but not essential
