Christmas is set to arrive at Dalkeith Country Park from Saturday (December 3) as the park of launches a real Christmas tree pop-up shop for the first time.

The park will stock trees from Needlefresh, one of the UK’s leading suppliers of Christmas trees, and will have five, six and seven foot options available for those looking to bring some Christmas magic to their homes with a real tree.

The Christmas trees will be available to purchase at the park every weekend in December and from December 17 to 24.

Andrew Elmer, Visitor Services Manager at Dalkeith Country Park, said: “We are delighted to be offering real Christmas trees for the first time. Following the restoration and investment in Dalkeith Country Park, and with the launch of Fort Douglas and Restoration Yard; being able to give our customers a new offering with these beautiful trees will be a great addition.

“We are stocking Nordmann Fir trees, one of the most popular Christmas tree varieties in the UK. These trees are well known for retaining their needles better than other types of Christmas tree.

“Customers can handpick their tree to ensure it is the perfect one for their presents, lights and decorations to adorn this year.”

The trees on sale in the park were grown in Stirling and were nurtured for as long as 12 years to ensure each tree is of spectacular quality. For more information go to
