Can you trim the stump for me?
All part of the service! We’re happy to trim the stump to your direction. Whether this is just to take half an inch off the bottom to help the tree draw up water, or to ensure the tree will fit perfectly in your stand (please bring with you for a made to measure fit!). If you don’t have a tree stand, you can buy one at the sale.
Do you open in bad weather?

How cheap are your Christmas trees?
We regularly price check other local stores and aim to keep our prices as low as possible to make sure we’re providing great value to our customers. However, not all trees are equal – we only sell fresh premier quality trees as our aim is for total customer satisfaction.

Can you collect our Christmas tree in January?
This is not a service we provide, You can have your tree collected by JustHelping, a northwest based charity which supports local hospices and small not-for-profit organisations. In this area, they are supporting St. Ann’s Hospice. You can register your tree for collection by making a donation. Visit their website at https://just-helping.org.uk/ for further information
If you are having your tree collected, please remove all your decorations and leave your tree in a clearly visible place on your collection day. Don’t cut up your tree as it’s easier for the collectors to handle whole. JustHelping is collecting between 14th January and 17th January 2021
Stockport MBC can take your tree if you cut it up and place it your green bin. Alternatively, you can take it to one of their recycling centres.
There are lots of ways you can get involved:
Do the trees drop needles?
