Great British Christmas Trees – Freshness Assured

Grown in Britain has launched a campaign to encourage UK consumers to buy more certified British grown Christmas trees.

We are urging retailers and consumers to support rural businesses in Britain and reduce ‘tree miles’ by checking where their Christmas tree comes from before they buy.

According to Government statistics, £3 million pounds worth of real Christmas trees were imported into the UK last year.

Many retailers and consumers may be assuming that they are buying fresh British grown trees, when they are not.

Grown in Britain has created a Christmas tree licensing scheme that operates throughout the supply chain from growers to retailers and provides an assurance that trees are fresh and grown in the UK in a responsible way with due regard to the environment.
