About Our Trees
Cut Trees Sold Out For 2016
Why should you buy a Christmas tree from us, we grow all of our trees ourselves you can even come and see them growing in the field if you wish, unlike some other sellers that buy trees weeks in advance to sell on, chances are these trees will soon lose their needles due to being cut too early.
Why we don't class our trees as premium, first class etc, these terms are only used by growers to class their trees into different qualities, we feel that we don't need to do this as we only sell trees that we would buy ourselves as if we were a retail customer looking for a nice quality tree, grading trees as premium etc can also have the effect of putting the price up. We cultivate and care for our trees with great care and attention. You can be confident of excellent quality by purchasing from us.
We as growers are dedicated to the production of quality real Christmas trees. The climate in Ireland is suited to the production of Christmas trees and our trees are planted, pruned, sheared and nurtured to the highest standards at the correct times of year.
