Question and Answers
What varieties of Christmas trees do you have?
There are a number of differing species of Christmas tree.
The common New Zealand Christmas tree is the Monterey Pine (or Pinus radiata if you want to be botanical). These trees have that lovely pine fragrance that so many of us relate to Christmas time. These are the trees that we supply.
Do Christmas trees grow in a triangular shape?
No. Christmas Trees must be lovingly sheared every 6 months of their short 4 year life. Shearing helps the trees to grow to the correct shape, colour and density.
This is about the only similarity we know about between Christmas trees and sheep.
What size Christmas trees do you deliver?
We have four different sizes:
Small 5-6 foot (1.52 – 1.82m)
Med 6-7 foot (1.82 – 2.13m)
Large 7-8 foot (2.13 – 2.45m)
Ultra 9-10 foot (2.45 - 3m)
Sizes are approximate.
How long does a Christmas tree last?
Fresh pine trees still look green and healthy 3-4 weeks after being cut. If the tree is standing in water around the base they can last 4-5 weeks or more. It is very important to look after your new tree. Please see our Tree Care page for more information
How do I help my Christmas tree look better longer?

Isn’t cutting down Christmas trees bad for the environment?
No, most Christmas trees including ours are planted as crops with the sole purpose of becoming at Christmas tree. This is much like growing vegetables. They are trimmed every 6 months to maintain the triangular shape we all love. When a tree is cut down another tree is planted in it’s place.
We believe our Christmas trees eagerly await the day they are big enough to fulfill their destiny, move into your lounge and make your Christmas fantastic!
Christmas trees also convert Co2 to oxygen and do actually benefit our environment.
Are your Christmas trees just branches from bigger trees?
No, most Christmas trees including ours are planted as crops with the sole purpose of becoming a Christmas tree. This is much like growing vegetables. They are trimmed every six months to maintain the triangular shape we know and love.
What if I’m not home when you call to deliver my tree?
Unless specifically requested to do otherwise, we will leave your tree outside your door (or some other obvious place). We will attempt to leave your tree in the shade. We will also attempt to provide your tree with a little water. At this stage, we are still working on how we can provide the water.
