Christmas Trees  
The last 2 months have been busy in the fields weeding, bud nipping and leader reduction. Every tree gets personal attention at this time. All these processes have been dealt with in previous blogs from last year. 
The Spring Into Cranleigh event was a huge success. Cranleigh achieved the required number of painted pebbles to set a new world record. So many people from the village as well as visitors came out in support despite the very windy, showery weather.  
I hope you like our tree 
. We should start a new trend for Easter trees. The hand made decorations look lovely and withstood the wind and rain very well. 
Spring is here, Easter is just around the corner. Over the last few weeks we have had all sorts of weather! Hopefully it will be nice and sunny over the weekend for all our Easter celebrations. 
What are you up to over the Eater weekend? 
February and March is still a busy time for the girls in the office as there is plenty to catch up on after the mad time leading up the Christmas.  
The boys are busy keeping the weeds down, fertilising the trees and prunung them into a lovely shape before they start 'flushing'. This is the new growth on the trees which is a beautiful lime green colour and very soft. 
We have also been planting new trees. Bucky, the new member of the family has been helping out in the tractor. He is very vigilant, looking behind to check the planters are keeping up. We are thinking of getting him his HGV licence so he can replace Hans on the lorry at Christmas! 
What an exciting Christmas Season for Hans Christmas Andersen (H A Trim) 
December was great despite the rather inclement weather! Our lovely customers braved the rain and cold to come and choose their favourite tree. It was great to meet everyone. 
We are sorry we have not kept you up to date on the happenings at the farm over the last few months but in the Christmas Tree world the last couple of months, particularly, the busiest people have been the office team getting orders in and beginning to prepare for the Christmas madness.
