DANE END CHRISTMAS TREE FARM HISTORY
Dane End Christmas Tree Farm was established in the early 1980s by a Mr
William Ives. Before this the land was used for pig farming and as an orchard.
Due to ill health, Mr Ives sold the farm to us, the current family owners, in 2006.
Our first Christmas in 2006 was an eye-opener regarding
the extent of the physical work that was required. Cutting, lifting, and netting in all weather conditions
provided steep learning curves. However, we overcame these initial hurdles and we are now approaching
our eleventh Christmas!
Since owning the farm we have cleared a vast area of
overgrown trees to replant a selection of trees for future years and we have experimented with different
techniques for growing, pruning and shearing.
We believe in making Christmas special so we sell our
trees directly to the public, offering a service second to none. Customers are welcome to walk around our
woods and our large display area of trees of different varieties, height, shape and size. There is also ample
car parking space for our customers.
This year we have been listening to the suggestions of
our customers and have therefore been working on creating a “floodlit forest experience”. This will allow
late-night shopping for those on their way home from work who want to leave their weekends
To complement the trees there is a range of Christmas
tree stands and hand-made wreaths. We drill a hole up into every tree trunk. This then fits firmly onto all
our stands and avoids the need for any further fixing.
Once the Christmas festivities are over, customers are
welcome to return their trees and we will recycle them in an eco-friendly way.
Our services are available not only at Christmas. We
also provide real trees all year round for events such as film premieres, parties, photo-shoots,
Thank you for your continued custom and support. We look
forward to seeing you again. If you are a new customer please come and try this unique and individual way of
getting your Christmas tree.
We wish you a Merry Christmas from us all at Dane End
