All about Fred Smith

Fred Smith and two generations of his family have been growing and selling Christmas Trees for over 50 years in the historic village of Boxted (just north of Colchester in the ancient county of ESSEX in the UK). There is always a huge selection of trees planted on our family run farmstead – with sizes ranging from 1 metre (about 3 feet) to 10m (about 33 feet) in height.

This Christmas if you visit us, you can select your own Christmas tree – so bring a spade and dig your own – or alternatively there is always a very large selection of ready dug and pre-cut trees to choose from.

We can deliver regular sized Christmas trees locally by arrangement, for larger trees for commercial use please contact us for options.
