WHY CHOOSE THE NORDMANN FIR TREE?
The Nordmann Fir (sometimes spelt as Nordmann Fir) are currently the most popular Christmas tree in the UK. They are also known as Caucasian Firs with the technical name of Abies Nordmanniana. They are more commonly known as a ‘non-drop’ Christmas tree due to their excellent needle retention. We only offer premium grade trees, we select the very best each year meaning that every Nordmann Fir that we sell is full and bushy with a beautiful shape.
Here is some interesting information about these Nordmann trees.
The Nordmann fir is a conical tree, with strong bushy branches that grow in tiers and become progressively shorter towards the top, which gives it its beautifully symmetrical shape. The rich green firs are pruned twice a year to ensure they look their best.
The Nordmann fir, known as Abies nordmanniana or the Caucasian fir, was discovered in 1838 in Caucasus, a mountain range near southwest Russia between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea, by a Finnnish botanist called Alexander von Nordmann. They are typically grown in the Scottish Highlands and in Eastern Europe where the temperatures are cooler.
The proud Nordmann is a slow-growing tree, taking ten years to reach 6ft tall. The most popular sizes vary from 5ft to 8ft. Trees used for Christmas trees come in different sizes, but more typically around the 4ft – 10ft range although it is possible to get both smaller and larger versions.
Scent and Needles
The needs of the Nordmann are shining and soft to touch, which makes it the ideal option for households with pets and small children. The fir is almost scentless, which is perfect for the more sensitive households.
The Nordmann is the longest lasting tree, making it ideal for the families who like to put their decorations up early. Water it well and position your tree away from heat sources like radiators.
