Welcome to Jackson's Nurseries, a family-run business based in the Staffordshire Moorlands on the outskirts of the beautiful Peak District. We sell a range of Christmas trees which are nurtured on our Christmas tree fields at 750ft above sea level to produce strong, healthy trees.
Buying direct from the grower means you can save a small fortune by cutting out the middle-man. You are guaranteed to receive a fresh tree that will go from our fields to your front door in a matter of days.
We have been growing Christmas trees for over 60 years and sending them to mainland UK for 15 years. Our tried and tested packaging technique will ensure your tree arrives looking as fresh and healthy as it was when dug and shipped from our nursery.

Buying Direct from the Grower - save £££ with fresh trees guaranteed
The growing fields support a large ecology of wildlife by offering a fantastic, safe haven for birds, insects and small mammals that seek shelter and food amongst the growth. This is because at Jacksons Nurseries we plant Christmas trees as ‘draw trees’ and plant native trees in between the Christmas trees as we plant. As the Christmas trees are harvested, we leave the native species on some part of the Christmas tree growing area to develop into native English woodland.
You can see the results on the skyline from the top of our car park. This year we hope to join up with the adjacent farmers Native Woodland planted about 10 years ago to form a wildlife corridor from Thorneyedge to nearly Stanley Pool.
We don’t just grow Christmas trees, we actually use them to develop Native British Woodland Wildlife Corridors!
Throughout their growing period our Christmas trees contribute to the betterment of the atmosphere by converting carbon dioxide into breathable oxygen which helps everyone! Just one acre of Christmas trees will absorb over two tonnes of carbon dioxide a year.
Christmas trees are fully biodegradable and can be put to lots of good uses after the Christmas period. Another very important aspect of purchasing a real Christmas tree is that you are supporting a renewable resource. For each individual tree that is removed, two are planted in its place.
We deliver high quality real Christmas trees grown on our nursery to home and business addresses across the UK, including London, Birmingham, Manchester, Bristol, Glasgow, Leeds, Liverpool, Bradford, Newcastle, Sheffield, Southampton and elsewhere. You can pre order a Christmas tree online for a delivery date of your choosing (Tuesday to Friday from late November through December).
Artificial trees by contrast are produced using non-renewable fossil fuels and are generally produced in countries with worryingly relaxed attitudes towards environmental preservation or sustainability.
We would always encourage you to buy a real Christmas tree to support a safe and natural product.
