Where to get a real Christmas tree in the North East

Time to transform your home into a winter wonderland with the North East’s finest festive fir trees. There’s nothing better than the pleasant pine scent of a real Christmas tree at home, and picking out your own part of the fun.



Take a trip to Raby Castle this festive season and choose from an extensive range of fir trees grown on the Raby Estate by their special team of foresters. Visit with the whole family, enjoy a stroll and pick out your own tree from their impressive selection of Nordman Fir and Norway Spruce. Handmade wreaths and foliage will be available to buy too.




Click and collect the perfect Christmas tree for your home at Edelweiss, Whitley Bay. Receive a free tree net with every purchase, plus complimentary mulled wine, mince pies and hot soup! There are over 300 types on display at any one time, including the Fraser Fir, Blue Spruce and the Lodge-Pole Pine.




There’s no place better than a garden centre in the countryside at Christmas time. Head to Whitegates Nursery in West Rounton, near Northallerton, pick up a glass of mulled wine or a piping hot choccy and browse through the festive stock. Finish with a trip to the Christmas tree wonderland where you’ll be able to pick up a homegrown fir tree for your home.




Ikea’s Christmas tree offer is returning for a seventh year, giving customers the chance to get a real tree for just £9. IKEA Gateshead are gifting all customers a £20 voucher when they buy their Abies Nordmanniana Christmas tree for £29, meaning you effectively get your Christmas tree for just £9! It’s a great chance to get a top class tree at an affordable price – and it’s the perfect excuse to return for some January shopping! You’ll find hundreds of fir trees for sale by the entrance in the car park – where festive, friendly faces will help you pick your favourite and package up for the car.




Experience the region’s largest choice of freshly-cut and sustainably-grown Christmas trees this December at Croft Christmas Trees near Darlington. They’ve been growing a variety of trees including Nordmann Fir, Norway Spruce and Blue Spruce since the 1980s, and their main aim is to ensure Christmas tree shopping is a special memory for families across the North East.
