The proceeds of the sale of trees each year bring benefits to the Wood – these are used to fund improvements such as the provision of picnic tables; maintenance of the footpaths; development of the facilities such as the Forest Classroom; the addition of sculptures and other features; and conservation and restoration of woodland habitats. These funds are also pay for a number of public events within the Wood each year.
All our Christmas Trees have been grown in BRITAIN, whilst many others sell trees from other countries (this usually involves the trees being cut early to allow time for shipping). Our trees are Forest Fresh, and with the right care should look good throughout the Christmas celebrations.
Buying a real tree helps the environment – while growing these long-term crops add oxygen to our atmosphere and provide wildlife habitats. After use trees can be returned for recycling to sites set up by local Councils.
The atmosphere in the Wood at Christmas is really special and an enchanting escape from the hustle and bustle of the shops. As well as thousands of great quality trees to choose from, the Chopwell Wood Christmas experience will include crafts, refreshments and much more, including appearances from the man in red and white himself!
