The Nordmann fir is one of the most popular Christmas trees in Ireland. The trees have a reliably symmetrical shape with a wide base and dark green, broad needles.

They are classed as a ‘non-drop’ Christmas tree alongside some others for retaining their needles for considerably longer than traditional Christmas trees do. Additionally,  the foliage is soft and glossy meaning it is fairly child-friendly.

The Nordmann fir is pretty low-maintenance indoor option and if you like larger decorations its branching patterns will ensure your Christmas memorabilia is well shown off.

Last year alone we planted 35,000 trees, we plant 3 trees for every 1 we cut.

Cut Trees are environmentally friendly

Surprised? Most people think it's bad to cut a live christmas tree. Instead, they buy an artificial tree made of plastic or other synthetic material. Because they reuse this artificial tree year after year, they think they are saving real trees.

But not so. We grow trees especially for Christmas. Planting huge tracts of land in beautiful Nordmann Fir and other favorites. It may take 8 to 12 years to grow a good sized tree. But during that time, the tree is taking in carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen. It is cleaning the air and helping slow climate change. If people didn't buy the cut trees, farmers wouldn't plant them.

 

Collect & Recycle your tree

When you are done with your  tree, you can recycle it. We offer a collection and Recycle service. After collecting your tree we grind it up into mulch. Then it is spread back onto the land to help grow something else—or more trees.

Description

Premium Quality Nordmann Fir (price incl Vat delivery on a stand and collection)

The Nordmann fir or Caucasian fir,[2] is a fir indigenous to the mountains south and east of the Black Sea, in Turkey, Georgia and the Russian Caucasus. It occurs at altitudes of 900–2,200 m on mountains with precipitation of over 1,000 mm. The current distribution of the Nordmann fir is associated with the forest refugia that existed during the Ice Age at the eastern and southern Black Sea coast. In spite of currently suitable climate, the species is not found in areas of the Eastern Greater Caucasus, which are separated from the Black Sea Coast by more than 400–500 km.

It is a large evergreen coniferous tree growing to 55–61 m tall and with a trunk diameter of up to 2 m. In the Western Caucasus Reserve, some specimens have been reported to be 78 m (256 ft) and even 85 m (279 ft) tall,[4] the tallest trees in the Caucasus, Anatolia, the Russian Federation and the continent of Europe. The leaves are needle-like, flattened, 1.8–3.5 cm long and 2 mm wide by 0.5 mm thick, glossy dark green above, and with two blue-white bands of stomata below. The tip of the leaf is usually blunt, often slightly notched at the tip, but can be pointed, particularly on strong-growing shoots on young trees. The cones are 10–20 cm long and 4–5 cm broad, with about 150–200 scales, each scale with an exserted bract and two winged seeds; they disintegrate when mature to release the seeds.
