About Christmas Trees Wales
Christmas Trees Wales
Our aim is to provide a great quality product produced in an environmentally responsible way at a competitive price to our customers always.
Who are we?
We are a family business that have been growing and selling real Christmas trees for over 25 years..
Our business is based across South Wales and we grow trees at our nursery in Monmouthshire and have planted 15,000 trees in 2011/12 and hope to plant another 10,000 trees in 2017/18.
We manage the site to a very high environmental standard. This creates a very unique eco-system which supports various species of small mammals, birds, and insects. Snakes and amphibians are also especially particularly fond real of Christmas tree plantations!
We don't use any pesticide and only small amounts of herbicide (to tackle hard weeds) in our plantations.
Sorry, but wholesale deals are not available at the present time.

The Christmas Tree
On average a 6ft fir Christmas tree can take about 10 years to grow. A similar size Norway spruce tree can take approximately 7 years to grow. Some of our trees will be grown on for bigger ‘town centre’ type Christmas trees and take up to 30 years to grow to the appropriate height.
During growth, real Christmas trees absorb Carbon dioxide and release oxygen so are great for the environment compared to a fake plastic tree which is mostly made from fossil fuels. Any trees left over are chipped and converted into compost. The compost is then used for potting our hardwood trees, hedging and Christmas trees. Some woodchip is also used in the maintenance of some footpaths at our sales area at Wentwood Forest.
