There’s more than one type of cut Christmas Tree, here’s a guide to Toomers' range and why customers choose them.

The traditional type is ‘Norway Spruce’ with dark green small needles that densely cover the branches. This is your entry level tree and these come in a wide range of sizes.

‘Nordmann Fir’ is the classic low needle-drop Christmas tree. The branches are tiered with larger soft, glossy needle like leaves. They give a distinctive pine aroma. The needles are less likely to drop because the resin in the branches holds them firmly to the tree.

‘Fraseri’ are becoming more popular as they are highly scented, and customers love this pine scent in their living rooms. The pine needles are glossy green in colour, with a silver-grey underneath. These trees tend to be more slender in shape than a Nordmann.

A new addition to Toomer's range this year is the ‘Noble Fir’, these have thickly bunched blue/green needle and are naturally well-proportioned trees. Similarly, to Normann and Fraseri, these are low needle drop.

Toomers have also got a range of pot grown trees. Having roots, there’s less risk of needle drop and when bringing them indoors there’s no need for a stand. With care these may live on once taken back outside and are ideal for a front garden or patio display.
