Home Delivered Christmas Trees from Pines and Needles

It’s halfway through November, which means that soon it will be time to start thinking about your Christmas tree – where you will get it from, how much to spend, whether you will get a real or a fake tree. It can be a bit of a pain picking up your own Christmas tree, I think. Getting it in your car and then out at the other end, getting pine needles everywhere. I didn’t know it was even a thing to order your real Christmas tree online and get it delivered to your front door, but recently Pines and Needles contacted me to talk about their company that delivers sustainably grown fresh cut Christmas trees from Scotland all over the country.

Pines and Needles Home Delivery Christmas Trees

I am very excited to be receiving a Christmas tree from Pines and Needles in December. We always have a real Christmas tree and I’m sure I always will. I love the smell that fills my lounge, it makes me very happy and immediately smells like Christmas to me. I’m really bloody excited to not have to go and spend ages choosing a Christmas tree in the cold and then get it home, and instead just have it turn up at my door on the date that has been arranged.

Pines and Needles trees are sustainably grown, and they are members of the British Christmas Tree Growers Association. They do their utmost to positively contribute to the wider community through their working practices, environmental responsibility, and charitable partnerships. This year they have undertaken the task of raising sixteen thousand pounds for the largest UK children’s charity: Action for Children.

They provide a guarantee that you will receive a fresh tree and if you are not completely satisfied when you receive your tree you can let them know on the day and they will replace it! They have both indoor and outdoor trees available, as well as extra large trees and potted ones. Pines and Needles have association with charitable foundations such as RHS Cancer Research and Aspire and they provide the Christmas trees for the Christmas Ideal Home Show and  – so you know they must be good quality trees.

The indoor trees that you can have delivered to your home are Nordmann Firs which are the preferred choice of modern Britons as the needles are not pointy and the tree benefits from its ability to retain its needles for longer in an indoor environment. The tree should usually last around four weeks in good condition, so perfect if you arrange for it to arrive in December, like mine will be.

Mini Trees from Pines and Needles

You can order from Pines and Needles online, and you can specify the type of tree you want. They also have water-holding stands and mats available for your Christmas tree so setting up your tree can be really easy. It’s a great service for busy parents at this time of year. If you want to make it all even easier they even have sets of decorations, so you can get everything delivered to your front door.

They are a great family company, who really seem to care about the environment. They are carbon positive for most of the year and carbon neutral during Christmastime, which I think is great. And for each tree that is harvested, they replant seedlings straight away. They are also aiming to replace all of their delivery vans with electric vehicles. I think it’s really nice that they make a big effort with the environmental side of things, and they seem to really care about their customers, which is lovely.

Pines and Needles Christmas

I really can’t wait to get my Christmas tree delivered to my door this year, and it does feel like a big relief to not have to get one home ourselves.

Pines and Needles has offered my lovely readers £10 off when you spend £50 with the code BIRD15 (enter at the checkout) and you’ll even get some free Holly or Mistletoe with that! I think the code makes them a really good price especially as it takes all of the effort away.

If you decide to order a tree from them let me know – I’d love to know what you think! I can’t wait to receive my tree at the beginning of December. Look out for my review after that.

Do you get a real or a fake Christmas tree? What are you most excited about for Christmas this year?

    I’ve had a fake tree for the past few years but would love to have a real one this year. I will definitely take a look at their website and see whether they deliver to my area, thanks for sharing x

    We have a fake tree, mostly because I can’t be doing with the needles dropping, and habit from our childhood after my mum realised he got urticaria from needles. My brother in law buys in and sells christmas trees, so if we did change out mind it’d be quick handy.

    What a great idea and they look great quality. We have a tradition here to get our real tree from the local nursery. But I’m going to need help from my mum this year. Although this is potentially worth considering. Xx

    They do sound like a lovely company, so great to hear about them supporting Action for Children, I did check them out but delivery to Northern Ireland is a bit steep!xx

    I love real trees, I love how they look and the smell of them but the past few years we’ve had a fake one.

    I’ve heard a lot of great things about Pines and Needles, and hopefully we’ll be getting a tree from them next year.
