B&Q launches Christmas tree sales

Published: 19 November 2019 - John King
 

The harvest sees 250,000 trees chopped down by hand over the next month by a team of 100, with a single person ploughing through as many as 1,000 trees daily. The Nordman Fir trees typically arrive in B&Q stores within two weeks of being cut down – perfectly fresh for shoppers looking to bring the magic home this season. No tree goes to waste - if a tree isn’t quite ready it is kept planted for another year and nurtured until it is ready for sale in store.

Kam Dhillon, B&Q’s Christmas category manager, said: “It’s our mission at B&Q to help shoppers bring the magic home at Christmas, offering a variety of sustainably grown Christmas trees. What’s more, all of our trees are grown almost entirely in the UK, meaning customers can enjoy the festivities with peace of mind.

"The annual harvest truly is a magical time of year, with the trees carefully nurtured for up to a decade until they are ready to fulfil their Christmas destiny.”
