Over 1,500 Christmas trees will arrive at the Park ready for sale from the
start of December. Three species are available, all sustainably grown, and
sourced from within the UK by the Forestry Commission. First, the
traditional Norway or European spruce, a little prickly and with a great
smell but which does not enjoy hot centrally heated houses. This species is
widely grown for its timber and in the 1960s large block was planted in QE
Forest close to the Holt Pond. Second, the Lodgepole pine which
originates from North America and is so named because of its use in the
construction of Native American tipi. This species is very resistant to
needle drop and is great with lights, standing outdoors. And
finally, the most popular of the three the Nordman fir. This species best
suits modern living, being needle fast and with a classic Christmas tree
shape. The trees are all cut with no
rooted or pot grown plants available. Once the tree has safely
arrived home it should be kept outside in water. Just before it is to be
taken in doors 1 inch should be cut off the base and the tree should be
located away from any heat sources or sunny windows and again kept in water
which must be regularly topped up. Once Christmas is over the tree
can be returned to QECP (minus all the decorations) to be recycled.
For more information about tree species and availability contact the shop on
20 minutes free parking in the main Car park in front of Visitor Centre at Queen Elizabeth Country Park
Please bring your own sheet or
blanket to transport your tree. Please consider assistance for taking your tree to your car.

often overlooked cousin of the traditional Christmas tree as we know it here
in the UK, but in fact is the original, the one planted in the public
squares of Edinburgh, New York, Oslo, and Washington, the one presented to
the great and the good, and in our opinion, the best...it holds its leaves
for the season, and quite simply, the most beautiful, the most
fragrant...the smell and spirit of a real Christmas...our favourite! We
plant over 4,000 trees a year, nurture them to perfection, and specialise in
the Norway Spruce (Picea abies), Nordmann Fir (Abies nordmanniana), and Blue
spruce (Picea pungens).the best suited for our climate, and therefore, the
