Christmas Tree Farm, Hawkwell has the biggest choice of trees available in Essex, with numerous sizes on sale and growing from 3ft to 20ft (1m to 6m). We continue to develop new varieties and will have more than 10 tree types for sale this year. The farm also sells a huge range of attractive water holding tree stands, from traditional wrought iron designs to the latest water holding stands from the USA. You will also find hand made holly wreaths, mistletoe and a large display of authentic Christmas decorations. We will have numerous varieties on sale and growing at the farm that include varieties of Fir, Spruce and Pine. Most have excellent needle retention and a sweet scent that will fill the room and make them the ideal tree to decorate and admire.
Let's start from the beginning; the only way to buy a fresh real Christmas Tree is direct from the grower! The only way to then care for your real fresh tree is by using a water holding stand. We have a huge range of stands available and will not only advise which types are suitable but our knowledgeable staff will also advise you how to care properly for your trees.
Our aim is to provide the highest quality Christmas Trees, that will be the ideal centrepiece of your Christmas celebrations. Trees which are bought from us are grown in accordance with the British Christmas Tree Growers environmental Code of Practice and are guaranteed fresh. Provided care is taken in looking after your trees they will survive the Christmas period well. Above all they must be kept well watered in a water holding stand.
It is essential that cut trees should be fresh when purchased. The needles should not be dull and dried up. The branches should not be brittle. The outer needles should not fall off if the tree is gently shaken. After you have bought your tree it should be kept outside in a cool shaded place, preferably standing in water, until it is required indoors. Before bringing the tree indoors it is an advantage if about half an inch is cut off the butt in order to open up the pores of the tree. Mount it in a water-holding stand and place it away from direct heat. Keep the container topped up with water every day; you will be surprised how much it needs.
All of our trees have detailed tree care instructions on the reverse of their labels.
