Cork Christmas Tree Rental
This year, we are pioneering a new concept, whereby you can rent a living Christmas tree in a pot, and return it to us in January, where it is brought back to the farm, to be cared for all year round.
You can even rent the exact same Christmas tree next Christmas!
All rental trees come with a saucer to hold the water that must be returned after Christmas. Delivery and collection is only available to Cork City and surrounding suburbs, however we welcome anyone outside of that area, who wants to rent one of our trees, to call to us to collect, and call again in January to drop it back.
Order a tree through our online shop below. You can also order one from our shop at the Blackrock Hurling Club from Saturday November 20th . We also encourage you to name the tree; so it becomes part of the household – cheesy yes, but hey its Christmas! “Spruce Springsteen” and “Woody” are two names we love!
This is the important bit. We will provide you with the tree, plus a saucer to hold the water, but its up to you to keep it watered and to look after it. The tree will take up to a litre of water a day, and it must be kept away from heat sources, so do not place it near a radiator or a fireplace. Start small when watering it, with a half a pint to begin with. If the soil is wet, don’t add more water and check again the following day. Living Christmas trees need water, especially if brought indoors, but too much, and the roots will rot. Before you put it in the house, we would encourage you, if possible, to put it in a garage or utility room for 24 hours. This is a transition period, and it will be less of a shock for the tree, going from two extreme temperatures. If possible, please do this 24 hours before you return the tree in January.
You can return the tree to our shop at the Blackrock Hurling Club carpark on January 2nd or or we can call and collect it from you. Your tree will go back to the Christmas Tree farm to be specially cared for, and you can even rent the exact same Christmas tree next year.
