Christmas Tree Shortage

It looks like the poor Euro to Pound exchange rate has caused distress this year as claims that there will be a Christmas Tree shortage are emerging by the minute.

Denmark generally supplies up to 1 million Christmas trees to the UK, however, this year, only an estimated 300,000 will be imported. This is due to the high exchange rate. British growers are also expected to export the majority of their stock to take advantage of the strong Euro.

The Norway Spruce, our traditional British tree is also expected to be in short supply this year, and the British Christmas Tree Association has warned that the price on both types of tree is set to rise immeniently and advised people to buy their trees as soon as possible to avoid not having one at all!

We have secured a large range of real Christmas trees for London delivery – hurry while stocks still last!
