Swillington Organic Farm
After a real Christmas tree that will last all December long? Swillington Organic Farm has been dispensing real Christmas trees from their festive farm to the great and good of Leeds for years. They’re kept in water from the moment they’re cut, to make sure they stay fresh and don’t drop needles. They’re also kept unwrapped, so you can see the full shape before you pick it out – and they’ll wrap it there and then.

There are five different varieties of tree on offer, from the traditional Norway Spruce and Nordman Fir to the newer, non-drop Frazer Fir.

Christmas Trees Leeds
Based in Bingley, Christmas Trees Leeds will take the hassle out of getting your fir this December because they deliver right to your door. It started life over 10 years ago as a joint effort by uni mates Ben & Bjorn in Manchester, but was so popular that they kept it going when they moved back to Yorkshire after graduation. And when your leafy tree turns up outside, you’ll be glad they did.
Dodds Christmas Trees

Cut within three days of placing your order, every real Nordmann Fir tree is premium grade, which means it’s been assessed for quality, colour and even the symmetry of its branches. The best bit? Dodds deliver all across Leeds, so all you need to do is decorate it.
