Your Christmas Tree Guide

15th Nov

When it comes to picking the perfect Christmas tree, we are here to help you. So we’ve put together this guide to make sure you get the tree that is just right for your home.

Firstly, we recommend:

  • Buying a tree early December, this will give you the best choice
  • Keeping the tree in a sheltered spot in the garden or in a shed with the butt standing in water
  • Bring it into the house no more than 10 days before Christmas Day
  • Choose a water holding stand and keep it topped up regularly
  • Try to stand it away from fires & radiators


But which tree to go for? Here’s what we have on offer at Hollow Trees.

Premium Grade Nordman

These trees are professionally grown with much attention to detail to choose the right soil and site to grow on. Our growers ensure careful use of fertilizers, pesticide and weed control. Each tree is pruned annually to give the best shape possible. The trees are then graded with only the very best falling into premium grade. The result is a very good tree and the most expensive in our range, with good needle retention.




Natural Nordmans

These are Hollow Trees Home Grown. They have been cut for less time so are fresher, however the shape is not as good as the premium grade. Less labour and crop protection products have been used resulting in a cheaper tree. These trees have good needle retention.




Norway SpruceNorway Spruce

These are grown by a local supplier. They are the traditional type of Christmas tree. They are faster and easier to grow than the Nordman, with a competitive price to match. Needle retention is for a shorter time than the Nordman but will give good service if kept watered and away from direct heat. Some people prefer the aroma of the Norway Spruce.
