Guisborough Forest Christmas Tree Sales
(Average user rating: 5 unrated 5/5)

Our sustainably grown, high quality Christmas trees are 100% Santa Approved! Come to the forest to choose your perfect tree and mark the start of the festive period with an authentic day out with the family.

Choosing your perfect Christmas tree

When you visit, our friendly, expert staff will help you choose from the traditional scented spruce, or the broader darker needled Nordman Fir, both at a range of heights from 4ft - 8ft, both grown over the moor in Dalby Forest. Our high quality, sustainable Christmas trees all come with a 100% Santa Approved certificate, so you know that you're getting the very best tree.

A family choosing their Real Christmas tree

We are happy to announce that the price has been frozen so will remain the same as last year! All profits from the sales go to the Friends of Guisborough Forest and Walkway and will be used onsite to improve facilities and to fund events like the annual Guisborough Forest Festival.

Pick one, plant one!

To highlight the importance of sustainable forestry, you'll receive a free Christmas tree sapling with every purchase! Keep it well watered, and care for it well, and that sapling will grow into a big, strong Christmas tree.

Opening dates and times

The Friends of Guisborough Forest and Walkway launch their annual Christmas tree sales from 10:00am to 3:30pm from the 1st December, every day throughout December while stocks last.

Parking is provided by the local council for £1.

More than just trees

Christmas Craft Workshop. Finished wreath

What do other visitors say?

Will the parking charges be in force when we come to collect or is there a moritorium on charges whilst Christmas trees are being bought / sold

Hello, thanks for your question, our winter admission charge of 4 per car is in place, however this is refunded if you purchase a Christmas Tree. Thank you.
