Work During the Year

What we do during the year

Planting

In March when the soil has begun to dry, Martin prepares the ground for planting. He selects only the very best plants. He is seen here examining a 3-year old Noble Fir plant prior to planting. It will take another 8 years before the plant will be a 2-meter high Christmas tree.

Pruning

shearing2Pruning trees is necessary to ensure that the tree you buy will fit neatly into the corner of your sitting room. this is a skilled operation. The trees that Martin is pruning here are about 6 feet in height and, when they  have put on their new foliage and new leader, will be ready to harvest next Christmas
