About us

How it all began…

Here at Newsholme Christmas trees we are a family business run by Neil and Matthew Wright based in the little village of Newsholme near Howden in East Yorkshire. We’ve now been growing and selling trees for over 20 years and we look forward to providing high quality fresh trees for lot more Christmas’ to come.

It all started in the early 90’s (no one can pin point a year) when Neil got fed up with buying poor quality trees that looked bad and died before Christmas had even come around let alone before the 12 days of Christmas were over with. After a light bulb moment he decided he would grow his own on a spare bit of land to solve his problem.

6 or 7 years later the trees were ready but having planted too many he decided to sell the odd one to family and friends. This small group of people slowly expanded as everyone was amazed at how long a tree can last when it is cut fresh and word of mouth brought more a more people.

As the years went on our customers grew and grew and the amount of trees we planted increased. Now we have over 15000 trees growing but we still aim to solve the initial problem which meant Neil started Newsholme Christmas Trees. We like to think you won’t find a fresher Christmas tree anywhere else.
