A Christmas tradition
At Windsor Great Park we take great pride in the responsible way that we grow our trees.
|My little tree|
Swedish candles, also known as Swedish fire log or Swedish torch, is a log that is split like a cake and used as a small outdoor fire. The Foresters at Windsor Great Park choose the best wood and ready-cut these for you to enjoy in your garden. Leave some space in your car to take one home.

As you would expect from the Forestry Team at Windsor Great Park, our cut trees will be fresh when you make your purchase. We will check that the needles are not dull and dried up, the branches are not brittle and the outer needles do not fall off if the tree is gently shaken.
It is part of the life cycle of the conifer tree that it sheds needles. This will accelerate if they are allowed to dry out. Some trees do so more quickly than others. The best way to ensure satisfaction is to care for the tree while it is in your home. A tree should be treated like any plant being brought into a warm, dry atmosphere.
When you get your tree home it should be kept outside in a cool shaded place, preferably standing in water, until it is required indoors. Before bringing the tree indoors it is an advantage if about half an inch is cut off the butt in order to open up the pores of the tree. Mount it in a water-holding stand or wedge it in a bucket with pebbles, small stones or screwed up newspaper, and place it away from direct heat. Keep the container topped up with water every day; you will be surprised how much it needs.
We can deliver your Christmas tree for you for a small charge and at a time that is convenient for you. Speak to a member of the team who will organise this.
