Frequently Asked Questions
Can we cut our own tree?
No, this is not a service we offer, but thats because most of our trees are already cut and standing on spikes, this allows you to look round the tree to choose the perfect one for you. Our trees are harvested throughout the season to ensure the our customers get only the freshest trees.
What types of tree do you sell?
We sell the traditional Norway Spruce, Nordman Fir and several varieties of Pot Grown trees. You can find more details about our Christmas Tree varieties here.
Will you run out of trees if I buy my tree closer to Christmas?
As we grow the trees ourselves we are able to cut trees up to Christmas Eve so we'll never run out! However there won't be as many trees to choose from at that stage so for the biggest choice don't leave it too late.
Which type of tree does not drop its needles?
Nordman Fir trees are much better at holding their needles if looked after well and watered regularly. For Hans' tips on how to look after your tree see here.
If my tree doesn't fit in the car do you deliver?
Cranleigh Garden Services deliver trees on our behalf. You will need to organise that with them on the day or ahead of time if you know your tree will be too long for your car. You can find contact details for Cranleigh Garden Services and prices on their website. Delivery can only be arranged for trees from Santa Fir Christmas Tree Farm, not our other locations.
How long does it take to grow a 6ft Christmas tree?
It can take 10yrs to grow a 6ft Nordman Fir tree.
