Our two favourite trees are the Nordmann Fir and the Norway Spruce. Probably the two most popular Christmas tree types in the UK, and for good reason. The Nordmann Fir is by far the most popular Christmas tree in the UK. These Christmas trees are bushy and retain their needles better, compared to other types of trees. Its counterpart, the Norway Spruce, is the traditional Christmas tree, it has a beautiful scent, and a lovely shape if kept well. If cut fresh and looked after it will last right through the Christmas period. We thought we would give you a bit of information about the tradition behind these two trees.
The Norway Spruce
The Norway Spruce originates from Scandinavia and was originally grown in the mountainous areas of Europe. The Norway spruce has become a widespread tree in the UK having been reintroduced in the 1800s. Mainly used as a Christmas tree, other uses include using the spruce to make timber for construction and also to make paper.
A reason why the tree has become so popular in the UK is down to Prince Albert. He used the tree in the 1800s and adopted a German tradition of decorating the tree with candles at Christmas. This introduced the idea of a Christmas tree to the UK. Thanks to Prince Albert we can grow and gift these beautiful trees to you as charming little trees for your living room.
The Nordmann Fir
Everyone’s favourite tree, the Nordmann Fir has a rich history and tradition as a hearty and reliable tree. Originating from mountain ranges in Russia it was discovered by a Finnish explorer named Alexander Von Nordmann. This tree was later named the Nordmann Fir in his honour.
The mountain range where our favourite tree was discovered, named the Caucasus is a 750-mile-long series of mountainous terrain. It stretches across Russia, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan and Turkey. With our trees originating from such tough terrain and conditions, you can be sure that they will last the Christmas season in your living room.
