- Environmentally sustainable
Our harvested Christmas trees are replaced with new seedlings every year.
- Cleansing our city
Our Christmas trees remove carbon dioxide, dust and pollen from Sheffield's air.
- A breath of fresh air
Just one acre of our Christmas trees produce enough oxygen for 18 people to breathe for a year.
- The carbon neutral option
Real Christmas trees absorb as much carbon dioxide during growth as they release when decomposed or burned.
- Circle of life
We recycle old trees into a nutrient rich mulch for the next generation of Christmas trees.
- Supporting local wildlife
Our trees provide nesting sites for birds and attract important pollenating insects such as hoverflies, moths and butterflies.
- Low tree miles
Locally grown trees reduce the need to import and transport trees long distances from outside of the UK.
SHEFFIELD CHRISTMAS TREE FARM
OPENING WINTER 2021
Grow Me Trees Sheffield Christmas Tree Farm
We believe in living in a clean and sustainable city.
Grow Me Trees Christmas Tree Farm is a brand new dedicated tree farm in Sheffield that is open for Christmas 2021.
Positioned on the edge of the Peak District National Park with stunning views over the city of Sheffield.
It is hugely important for us to be able to offer true environmental value to our city by preserving green space that supplies a source of clean air and provides a natural habitat for local wildlife.
Throughout the seasons we are privileged to be home to many of the city's beneficial insects such as bees, hoverflies, moths, butterflies, ladybirds and more. We have visiting mammals of all sizes from mice, badgers and foxes through to some magnificent red deer. Our woodland is also an important nesting site for many birds in the local area.
Sourcing yourself a locally grown real Christmas tree that is 100% renewable and 100% recyclable gives you the opportunity to help support your local wildlife and minimise your Christmas' carbon footprint.

VIEWS OF THE FARM
Trim the base
If you have let your freshly cut tree stand for a few days then sawing half an inch off the trunk of your Christmas tree is a good idea to remove any hardened sap that may have built up and ensure it is able to absorb plenty of water to stay fresh and green throughout Christmas.
Choose your location
Try to minimise the shock of relocating your tree from being outside in the cold air and let it aclimatise to the full heat of your home. Try to position it a good distance away from any radiators as constant or fluctuating heat can dry your tree out very quickly.
Ensuring the base of your Christmas tree is submerged in water at all times is key to keeping it alive. A Christmas tree can drink over 3 pints of water a day so check it daily and try to use a good tree stand that is easy to access that can hold plenty of liquid.
You may have heard that you need some special tree food or that a fizzy drink might help to keep your Christmas tree alive. Don’t believe a word of it. Your beautiful tree simply wants a constant supply of fresh water to keep it with happy and healthy needles.
