Lights, tinsel, action! Christmas is just around the corner, so treat yourself to a real Christmas tree to get into the festive spirit.
Don’t leave it to the last minute – it pays to be early when sourcing your Christmas tree, especially when you want a real one instead of a plastic, build-your-own effort. We’ve rounded up the farms, estates and nurseries in Leeds where you can pick out a festive fir or a perfect pine to take home right away or get delivered to your door, just in time for all the Yuletide fun.

When it comes to buying the best Christmas trees in Leeds, you can’t go wrong at Stockeld Park. It’s how the estate, now famous for family-friendly adventures, first opened to the public in 2006, having sold Christmas trees to wholesale for over 100 years. They’re now the biggest tree growers in Yorkshire, with more than 500,000 trees spread across 250 acres, hand-cultivated throughout the year for the best quality branches to hide presents under. They’re open daily from 25th November to 23rd December 2022 and delivery is available.
