Win a Christmas Tree from the award winning York Christmas Trees who were this year crowned the British Christmas Tree Grower of the Year 2020!
York Christmas Trees is a local family business with over 25 years experience of growing and selling Christmas trees. This year they won the prestigious award of British Christmas Tree Grower of the Year 2020, and it’s the first time this award has been won by a tree grower in the North of England since the competition began 21 years ago! York Christmas Trees will even be providing the 20 foot Christmas Tree that stands proudly outside No 10 Downing Street.
York Christmas Trees planted their first trees in York in 1998 and now have three generations of the family involved at Christmas. As the trees have become ready to harvest they have built up a retail site and opened a Christmas shop, all with the aim of providing good old fashioned value for money with friendly and happy service. They sell a wide range of freshly cut trees of different sizes to suit all budgets – this includes Nordmann Fir, Norway Spruce, Frasier Fir and Potted Trees. They also sell handmade wreaths, Christmas tree stands, decorations and tree lights.
This year the priority is to make customers feel safe so they have introduced some new measures to help. The Christmas shop which opens on Thursday 26th November and will have a one way system, hand sanitizers and shields in place and all staff will be wearing masks. For those customers who can’t visit York Christmas Trees they are offering a Click & Collect service, online ordering and home delivery and on Saturdays and Sundays in December they will be opening one of their Christmas Tree fields so customers can PYO. The PYO must be booked online as they only have a limited number of slots available – visit the York Christmas Trees website.
Free tree recycling
Did you know that a real Christmas tree bought locally has the lowest carbon footprint? According to the Carbon Trust, a real Christmas tree has a “much lower” carbon footprint than an artificial tree, particularly if it is disposed of thoughtfully. York Christmas Trees offer a free recycling service for trees returned on the first two Saturdays in January 2021. The trees will be chipped and returned back to the soil on their fields to keep the soil healthy and help the growth of the new seedlings.
