ACTIVITIES AND MORE

PICK YOUR OWN / CUT YOUR OWN / DIG YOUR OWN!

Due to health and safety reasons, we are unable to lend out saws, so if you wish to cut your own tree, you will need to bring one with you.

We offer a bespoke service where a member of staff will come and cut your tree for you (with their own saws) - this costs £10 and they will come round with you and help you pick your perfect tree.

If you wish to dig your tree, you are very welcome to bring your own spade, but we do have ones we can hire out for a small deposit. Please ask a member of staff on site for more information.

WORKSHOPS

This year (2019), we are holding Children's' Workshops at weekends, where children can make their own Christmas decorations. For more information please click here.

We are also hosting a couple of Luxury Wreath Making Workshops. Our first one was a great success with a huge amount of positive feedback and enquiries have led us to having another one on Tuesday 11th December. More information can be found here. Keep your eyes peeled for any announcements of further dates! 

CHRISTMAS STALLS

As we've done in previous years, we are holding Christmas stalls at the Leaton Forest Christmas Tree Barn at weekends. These are little stalls full of homemade goodies and local produce, so you can get some extra shopping done whilst you select your ideal tree! If you're interested in holding your own stall with us, please click here for further information.

Top tips

The Early Bird

For the best selection come sooner rather than later to choose your tree. Providing the tree is kept outside 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.

We would advise that any trees over 12 foot / 3.6 meters in height are ordered in advance.

What makes a good tree?

1. Our trees are bred and cared for to provide a good triangular shape.

2. Strong colour definition.

3. Should be well furnished, with well foliated branches right up the stem.
