Have you considered the low-needle drop Nordmann Fir?
The Norway Spruce or ‘Picea abies’ has been considered the quintessential British Christmas tree since Victoria times when Prince Albert popularised the idea of bringing trees into the home.
This variety is a firm favourite that adorns Christmas imagery all over the world. It is especially popular as an outdoor Christmas tree and makes a great focal point due to its commanding potential height.
It has a conical growth habit with dense and spikey, bright green needles that stand out beautifully against the simpler winter colours. These spikes are quite sharp so care is recommended when manoeuvring your tree into position and decorating.
The Norway Spruce produces an amazing fragrance, filling your home with the scents of the forest.
Bring your Norway Spruce tree into the home in mid-late December to reduce the amount of time it spends indoors and therefore the number of needles it will drop. Our top tip to help improve needle retention is to place your tree well away from radiators and other sources of heat and keeping it in plenty of fresh water.
We supply Norway Spruce trees either potted or cut and allow you to choose a delivery date that's convenient for you (Tuesday to Friday).

Christmas Tree Size
Our Christmas trees are graded for height and marked up well in advance of cutting or digging. Your tree will be within the size range you ordered, if you want a guaranteed minimum then you are always best to order the next size up. It is always possible to reduce the size by cutting down at the base of the tree if its a bit to big. We measure our trees from the cut or the top of the pot/rootball to the middle of the leader (this is the centre branch when your star or fairy would go) so factor this in plus the height of your adornment too. Also consider that if you are having a rootballed tree the height will not include the rootball or any pot or stand you wish to use. Depending on your stand you may need to remove some of the lowest branches to get it to fit.

Cut/Potted Christmas Trees
Dependant on size, it is supplied potted or cut. To ensure freshness, cut trees will have their rootball cut off as close to the dispatch date, once received you should keep it in a water holding stand. Our potted trees are not 'pot grown', they are dug from the field with a small rootball and placed into a non-decrative pot, this helps the tree to remain fresher for longer over the festive period. It may be possible to plant it out after Christmas but there are no guarantees. Your Christmas tree should be kept away from radiators or any other direct source of heat, such as an open fire. Keep your potted tree well watered. The pots supplied with trees are plain black plastic pots and are not intended for decrative purposes, put them into a water tight pot before watering. We recommend you remove your tree from the packaging outside.
Cut and potted Christmas trees are considered perishable goods and as such are exempt from return. All christmas trees are expemt from our 12 month guarantee. This does not affect your statutory rights.
