For many people the tree is the ultimate symbol of Christmas. When it’s all decorated and lit up, with the year’s haul of beautifully wrapped gifts laid out underneath and filling the room with that unmistakable aroma it’s impossible to deny that Christmas is finally here. We bring you 7 places to get the best local trees money can buy

1. Wrentham Christmas Trees

Wrentham Christmas Trees is a family run business that has been providing trees for Beccles, Lowestoft, Southwold, Walberswick and most of Suffolk for nearly 15 years. Customers can either select a pre-packaged tree or venture into the farmyard to pick one from the field. Why not make it a family outing and bring along the kids to soak up the festive atmosphere…and help carry the tree back to the car.

2. M P Stephenson

Located on Woodside Farm in Holton, M P Stephenson & Sons supply a wide range of Christmas trees such as Blue Spruce, Fraser, Nordman, Norway and Potted that are all grown on site. They also sell beautiful wreaths, tree stands and netting to transport your tree. They can be reached at 01986 873651 or via email: woodside.farm@hotmail.co.uk.

3. Kiln Farm Nursery, Kesgrave

Kiln Farm Nursery understands that choosing a Christmas tree is an adventure and can be great fun for all the family. From 10am till 4pm on weekends you can wander through the huge Nursery fields to find the perfect tree for you, be sure to look out for the rabbits, robins and maybe even a few elves. Once you’ve picked your tree, it will be cut down fresh for you take away. If you go early, the Nursery will tag it until you’re ready to pick it up.

4. Blackthorpe Barn, Bury St Edmunds

Blackthorpe Barn promises the freshest Christmas trees in the area, and because the trees are grown in plantations by the Rougham Estate - who has been in the business for more than forty years - we’re not going to argue. As the previous winners of the ‘British Christmas Tree Grower of the Year’ award, Rougham Estate’s trees are renowned for quality and longevity. They have even supplied trees to 10 Downing Street.

6. Redhouse Christmas Barn

Redhouse Christmas trees grow 18 acres of a variety of different trees on site that range in height from smaller 3 foot all the way up to 15 foot tall. Because their trees are grown on site it allows them to make sure each tree is up to the high standards they desire, with a natural shape and wonderful colour. This year they will be selling potted Christmas trees that can be planted in the garden after the Christmas holiday to be enjoyed for the rest of the year.

7. Paul Williamson Growers Ltd
