Why buy real?

Grown in Britain logo

With their fragrant aroma and distinctive feel, real Christmas trees are perfect for getting you in the festive spirit. They’re also better for the environment than artificial trees as they use about ten times fewer materials and five times less energy to produce! And they're completely biodegradable!

We sell a variety of trees that are grown in the UK in a well managed way, including trees that are FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified. Buying FSC certified products means you can be sure that the items you buy have come from reliable and sustainable sources and you won’t be harming the world’s forests.

Find your nearest Christmas tree sales centre in England

When Christmas is over, don’t forget that your tree can be chipped and turned into compost. Some of the larger Forestry Commission England sales centres can recycle your tree; just ask when you buy or contact your council to find out what’s available locally.
