A Guide to Finding Your Perfect Christmas Tree at Stockeld Park
Here at Stockeld Park, we are proud to be Yorkshire’s largest grower of quality, non-needle-drop Christmas trees. Covering 250 acres of the Stockeld Estate, every one of our trees are individually cultivated by hand to ensure their quality.
Stockeld Park Estate is one of the oldest and most renowned growers of real Christmas trees in England. For decades, our experienced and dedicated team have refined our growing techniques, ensuring a healthy and long-lasting tree for your home.
What Makes Stockeld’s Trees Special?
Our Christmas trees are the Nordmann Fir (Abies Nordmanniana), commonly known as ‘non-needle drop’ Christmas Trees. Characterised by their dark green needles, distinctive straight trunk, and natural symmetry, these trees are popular for both indoor and outdoor use.
Our traditional trees range from 4 to 12ft, with our larger display trees growing up to 30ft!
Helping the Environment with our Christmas Trees
Every day, our 500,000 trees produce enough oxygen to support 4,000 people. The trees also absorb 600 tonnes of CO2 every year – that’s the equivalent of 15,000 car journeys from Stockeld Park to London!
We plant 60,000 new trees every year – double the number that are cut down. Not all trees meet our high standards of beauty and symmetry , so are unlikely to sell. However, they still generate oxygen and absorb CO2 which is vital to keeping our environment safe and healthy.
