Norway Spruce

B. Nordman Fir The Norway Spruce is the traditional Christmas tree – it’s known for:

  • A wonderful shape and an abundance of branches – great for hanging lots of decorations!
  • A lovely ‘Christmassy’ scent that's perfect at this time of year
  • Being a little sharp and spikey to touch

It’s best to buy your Norway Spruce nearer to Christmas, as it can lose its needles quite quickly once brought indoors. To help your spruce retain its needles for longer, keep it away from the radiator and ensure its watered every day.

Pick your perfect tree

There's nothing like a gloriously-green real Christmas tree to bring the family together. Get your Norway Spruce in the heart of the forest from one of our friendly Christmas tree sales centres.

Or alternatively our web shop team offer free UK mainland delivery and would be glad to pick a spruce on your behalf.
