Welcome to the Trees For Christmas Website 2018
We have been selling Christmas Trees for 20 years and have built up an excellent reputation on the basis of supplying only top quality trees. We only stock 1st and premium grade trees. We are a small company and value repeat business. Quality is good and there has been minimal increases on most smaller sizes and no increase at all on larger sizes in most cases. Our Nordman Fir are sourced from Denmark and Scotland and most of our Norway Spruce is from Surrey. All trees are from sustainable plantations. Reported shortages due to this year’s drought are nonsense! Whilst there have been considerable losses to many trees planted this year it has had no effect on older trees to be harvested this year. Indeed colour and growth of these has been very good.
What we offer, that many other wholesalers do not, is that you can mix and match quantities, sizes and species as you wish, you do not need to order a full pallet of any particular size so you can be totally flexible with your order, so long as your minimum order is 20 trees. We offer free delivery within our delivery area of London and South East for orders over £750 + VAT. Although based in the south east we can deliver to all other areas of the UK on an overnight pallet service. The cost of this is around £110 + VAT and we can fit about 60-70 trees on a pallet depending on size. Alternately you are welcome to collect from our yard near Croydon 7 days a week - 7am to 5pm. Please note the address on our contact details is our office address only. There are no trees at this location.
One thing to beware of when comparing prices is that some large wholesalers have decided to regrade, re-tag or change their method of height measurement in the last year or so. Many are now using a butt to tip measurement rather than the traditional butt to halfway up the terminal leader. If you bought a particular colour tagged tree last year you might find that the same colour tag and grade is 6” – 12” smaller this year, but the price is just the same. We are still using the traditional method of measurement. Check before you buy. Caveat emptor!
Norway spruce continues its resurgence as the traditional Christmas tree and this has also meant a shortage of good quality trees particularly in the 6/7ft size range. We have got stock but expect this to go very quickly. As ever we would urge buyers to place orders early to avoid disappointment. The days of leaving it late and hoping to pick up cheap surplus stock are long gone. Leave it late and be disappointed! Book early to secure your supplies.
Supply, stocks and quality of larger 9ft plus display trees are good. We can also often help out with supplies of lower grade trees for set dressing, parties, themed events etc, even out of season, just ask.
Please beware of the various scams that continue to occur. If you are offered trees at a price that seems too good to be true they are almost certainly sub-standard, poor quality ones at best, or at worst don't exist at all and you will only discover this when your delivery fails to arrive after you have paid in full. We are happy for you to inspect the trees to check the quality for yourself. With Christmas trees you very much get what you pay for – if the price is cheap it will look cheap!
If you are retailing trees we have some netting machines for hire if you buy your trees from us. Please also see our retailing hints on the website. We are also always interested in new retail sites either running it ourselves or working in partnership with you.
If you have any queries at all Ian or Susie will be pleased to help and advise you.
