TREES FOR SALE
AT LOWER MOUNT FARM, COOKHAM
from 3 December 2004
Not just a tree - a tradition
Whilst the fruit trees at Copas Farms in
Cookham are ‘resting’ their branches, Christmas Trees will be on sale
in all their glory from Friday 3rd December 2004.
As in previous years, the trees are
supplied to Copas Farms by the Ingram family of Greenfield Farm at,
appropriately named, Christmas Common, just across the border in
Oxfordshire. The Ingrams have
been growing Christmas Trees for over thirty years and selling from their
Tree Barn for over twenty five years.
“We specifically selected The Tree Barn trees as we know them to
be of superb, fresh quality”, said James Copas.
Andrew Ingram explains that “Greenfield Farm provides the ideal
site for Christmas tree farming, and not just because of its address!
The trees like free-draining soil,
they do not like soil with a high pH, and they don’t like to be
caught out by late frosts”.
In recent years a wider choice of Christmas
Trees has become available and this year at Copas Farms we will have three
varieties available in all shapes and sizes. These will include –
Norway Spruce: The traditional Christmas
Tree. If kept cool and well
watered there is no reason why it should not hold its needles as well as
any other variety.
Serbian Spruce: A
narrow delicate tree with blue/grey underside to its needles which hold
well if looked after.
Nordman Fir: The most expensive of
trees, simply because it takes twice as long to grow as a spruce.
Bushy with straight branches and glossy needles.
Excellent needle holding.
The trees are priced by size and variety
and start at £3 per foot for a Norway Spruce.
Buying and decorating your tree is an
important part of the Christmas tradition.
A beautiful natural fir tree will instantly bring Christmas spirit
into your home, forming the focal point for celebrations.
It is not just a tree, it is a tradition.
into Copas Farms, Lower Mount Farm, off Long Lane in Cookham, this
Christmas and enjoy selecting your tree.
The trees will be on sale from Friday 3rd December to
Sunday 19th December. Our
24-hour message line, (01628) 529511 provides details on opening days and
