At our two Christmas tree farms we have 7 varieties of tree. You’ll be spoilt for choice with firm favourites like the Nordman Fir and Norway Spruce alongside rarer varieties, including Farmer Tom’s very own Sussex Fir. Let the man himself tell you all about his trees below.
The Nordman Fir is now Britain’s most popular tree. With a symmetrical shape and unbeatable needle retention, its not difficult to see why.
The Serbian Spruce has beautifully dense, prickly needles with a blue-green tinge. It is ideal for those who want a narrower tree.
The Blue Spruce has a fantastic citrus scent and, of course, a blue tinge to its needles. It also has better needle retention than the traditional Norway Spruce.
The Douglas Fir is a dense and therefore heavily-pruned tree, ideal for a “wrap and bow” look, hence why it’s popular in America!
Note – if you’re looking to hang baubles, this tree may not be what you’re after.
The Norway Spruce is the most traditional of our trees, the bushy branches and fragrant needles create the classic Christmas scene.
The Sussex Fir is Farmer Tom’s favourite tree. It has soft needles, so perfect for decorating with the whole family. It’s similar to the Fraser Fir, but is a bit slimmer and keeps a great orangey smell throughout the whole Christmas period.
The Fraser Fir is a beautiful orange-scented tree. With great needle retention, this species is a bestseller in the United States.
