Lorem ipsu

Reasons to love Leaton trees

We have been growing Christmas trees for 65 years and retailing for 40 years, retailing 2,000+ trees per annum.

We are members of the British Christmas Tree Growers Association and adhere to BCTGA standards.

We only start cutting our trees at the end of November and then only by demand.

We care about the environment. We replace every Christmas tree we remove, ensuring that there is no net increase in carbon emissions.

Early bird

For the best selection come sooner rather than later to choose your tree. We would advise that any trees over 12 foot or 3.6 meters in height are ordered in advance.

Caring for your tree

Providing the tree is kept in water and taken out of its net, it will last best if kept outside (but away from frost) until 7-10 days before Christmas. Inside, keep as far away from direct heat sources, and use a water holding stand.

Pick or cut?

Pick your tree from those ready-cut in the Leaton Forest yard or bring a saw to cut down your own.

If you want to choose yours from the forest but haven't brought a saw, one of our staff can cut down your tree. A £10 fee applies.

Christmas trees

You'll know your perfect Christmas tree when you see it. We grow six varieties of Christmas trees so there's something for everyone.

Norway Spruce, from £20

The traditional Christmas tree. It is bushy and it is easy to hang decorations on the many branches. When purchased with roots it has the highest transplant success rate.

Nordman Fir, from £25

This is the most popular tree sold over the last few years at Leaton and across the UK. The tree is a dark green and well branched with silver underside to the soft needles; it  also has the most uniform shape.

Very bushy with soft aromatic needles. Very popular in USA and Canada where it is indigenous. In limited supply.​

Fraser Fir, from £25

Has a similar shape Nordman Fir but narrower form and different needle formation.

Similar colour to Nordman. Very good branch formation.
