Buying a Christmas tree has been a long time celebrated tradition. It can be a exciting occasion browsing real trees with the natural scent and Christmas aroma around them. When it comes to making the purchase it is always good to know about what your buying and what factors to consider when to bring your selected tree in your home. Christmas trees grown in Ireland are mainly Noble and Nordmann fir along with a few other species you may come across. Noble and Nordmann fir are non shed and are farmed and sheared to produce a nice bushy and symmetrical shape. They are also the most popular types of Christmas trees in Ireland. Although most retailers will sell only non shed you should always ask the retailer what type of tree you are buying from them as they may not be Irish grown and not of a non shed type.
When To Buy a Tree?
This is quite an important factor. If you are a first time customer you should consider the space and room temperature when deciding what time to purchase. Regular customers may have traditions on when to bring tree inside their home and they also have a fairly good idea how long there tree will last for the festive season. If you are unsure it would be best not to buy too early. Some people like to have their tree up until the first or second week in January and is possible with the right tree care. We also recommend using a water stand which helps keep your tree fresh for longer and keeping your tree away from direct heating sources.
Since we grow our own trees we harvest regularly keeping a continual fresh stock for our customers when buying. We also keep updates on Facebook for our customers when new stock is arriving. When you have selected your tree we can also supply a water stand and drill the base for fitting and water uptake. It is also helpful if an inch is cut from the base to help with water intake.
