Nordmann Christmas Trees

How We Grow Our Nordmann Fir Christmas Trees

We are almost into single figures of the number of weeks until Christmas, so now is the time to start thinking about the best kind of Christmas tree for your home.

Here at Weston Sawmill, we are proud to be the leading supplier of Christmas trees in Shropshire and Staffordshire. One of our most popular types of Christmas tree we supply is the Nordmann Fir range that we grow here in Weston-under-Lizard, Shropshire.

It may seem crazy, but to grow a 6 foot Nordmann Fir tree takes between 6 and 10 years, and plenty of dedication from our team. Here we are going to discuss the tasks we undertake to make sure our trees grow healthily and look spectacular.

The Pre-Planting Process

Controlling weed growth is essential for our Christmas tree plantations, especially grass weeds. A pre-plant application of Glyphosate or a similar herbicide is added in late summer or autumn prior to planting.
By cultivating prior to planting in the autumn we also add a further application of herbicide to any weeds that germinate prior to planting.

Controlling Weeds

High-quality Christmas trees can only be grown by keeping them away from the weeds. The foliage of the lower branches are susceptible to weeds and will go brown if smothered. Glyphosate can be used when the trees are dormant, and we would usually use a half rate of spray.

Protecting Our Christmas Trees

To help our Christmas trees grow to their full potential, it’s essential to protect them from outside influences such as –
Rabbits – Our Christmas trees are protected by rabbit-proof fences to stop them from getting nibbled on by our floppy-eared friends.
Insects – By spraying pesticide several times during growing seasons this will control pests such as aphids.

Although not as common as free standing trees, the pot-grown tree has been steadily increasing over the years and offers a range of benefits in comparison. For one, the tree is still living so it won’t lose its needles to the same extent as a cut Christmas tree will. It’s also a far more environmentally options as you can replant it afterwards so it won’t need to go to a landfill site. Many families make an event of this and plant the tree together, giving it back to nature and allowing it to grow for future generations.

Choosing Your Christmas Tree

When it comes to picking your Christmas tree this festive season there’s a lot of things to consider before you make a purchase.

Over the past few years Weston Sawmill have become the number one place for Christmas trees in Shropshire and Staffordshire with hundreds being sold every year.

The first and most obvious thing to consider is how much space you have in the home. There’s nothing worse than picking out a beautiful tree only for it to be too big for it’s intended room so make sure you measure up first. After that, you’ll want to consider what type of tree you want. With the Nordmann Fir the needles are big and soft making it a great choice if you have young children in the house. However, the Spruce remains our most popular choice largely due to the incredible Christmas scent that it brings into your home although it doesn’t retain its needles quite so well. And, prices for the Spruce start from as little as £15 so it’s a great choice if you’re on a tight budget.

Christmas Trees Shropshire

What are the differences between these Christmas trees?

The classic spruce tree is what you will find in most homes in the UK and truly is a festive classic. Spruce christmas trees smell incredible and look fantastic in the home. The spruce has a vivid green colour about it with rectangular needles and is perfect for hanging your baubles and tinsel on. However, spruce Christmas trees do tend to lose their needles quicker than the Nordman so are best off being purchased closer to Christmas day. The Nordman on the other hand has incredible needle retention so will require the minimum amount of cleaning. It also has a more cone-like shape compared to the spruce but has a glossier appearance.

We sell both the spruce and nordman free-standing or in potted versions with each one available in roughly three different sizes. Weston Sawmill give our Christmas trees the best possible treatment all year round so they are perfect at the most wonderful time of the year.

The Big Question: Which Christmas tree for your home in Staffordshire, Shropshire and Wolverhampton?

Famous for its intoxicating Christmas tree smell it will instantly transport you into the festive spirit and is sure to turn any room into a winter wonderland. However, if you’ve got pets or small children why not take a look at our Nordmann Fir, this is the most popular type of real tree in the UK. It too looks great, but the fir has non-drop, blunt needles meaning that there’s minimal maintenance, and can be a little safer if there’s little feet around. We also have the option for them to be potted or cut, depending on if you want to keep the tree for a prolonged time of just for the season!

Light ’em up! – The Right Christmas Trees:

There are two primary contenders when it comes to choosing a Christmas tree: the Fir and the Spruce. Both are excellent candidates, but they each have different criteria to consider.

The Fir is a tree that sheds yearly. They are ideal for a large outdoor display in your garden, or as part of community function. They yearly shedding can make them a rather messy choice for indoors, as the needles will scatter over your floor as they shed.

The Spruce, on the other hand, only sheds once every three-to-four years. Buying a young spruce can be an excellent decision for an indoor display and can be an excellent investment. If you were to buy a young enough Spruce, you could host it indoors on the year of purchase, care outdoors for a year and then (size permitting) bring it for the next year’s Christmas. Once your spruce has outgrown your home (or is on it’s shedding year) it can make an excellent outdoor tree.
