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.
A Standard Nordmann Fir will not have as dense a foliage or be as uniformly shaped as a Premium grade tree. There is however no difference to their non-drop characteristics.
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.
