We have enhanced our methods of feeding and weeding our plantations and continue to develop specialist pruning techniques, improving the overall shape and uniformity of our trees. A lot of this work is done by hand which means each tree is treated individually and the impact on surrounding wildlife is kept to a minimum.
To make sure our trees are healthy and grow well, we feed them every year with a carefully selected fertiliser. It is cautiously applied underneath each tree, where it will be easily absorbed by the roots.
All our Needlefresh growers make great efforts to suppress weeds, particularly when the trees are small. If weeds are left to their own devices trees may be strangled out and starved of nutrition, this can lead to fewer trees surviving and poorer shape and quality for those that do. We are careful in our efforts to suppress weeds and insects and use as few chemicals as possible. Weeds are cut or environmentally friendly chemicals are used.
Every tree has a story that starts many years before it reaches your home. Learn how our growers care for your Needlefresh Christmas tree throughout its life.
