Christmas Tree sales return to Marsden Moor

The money raised will be used to help the moors recover from fire damage.

Rangers and volunteers at Marsden Moor will be holding their annual Christmas tree sale again this year, with all the money raised going back into looking after the moors. The sale, which runs from the 27th of November, will help the rangers repair the damage following the most recent moorland fire earlier this year.

As well as the sustainably sourced, British-grown trees, there will also be a selection of hand-crafted wooden gifts on sale. These have all been handmade by volunteers and include hedgehog boxes, wooden plant troughs and bug boxes.

National Trust Area Ranger Ian Dowson, said, “The whole team are really looking forward to the sale, which marks the start of our festive season. We’re very grateful to everyone who’s supported our conservation work this year. The money we raise during our sales will help the ranger team with important work like moorland restoration, repairing fences and stiles and protecting wildlife on the moors.

“The money will also help us repair the damage caused by the fire in April this year. It was devastating to see the devastation during the three-day fire, but we’ve already started recovery work with our community moss planting days.

“We’re really looking forward to seeing many of our regular customers as well as new faces at the sale, and we’ll be able to hand out mince pies and mulled wine once again to really get everyone in the festive spirit.”

The Christmas trees are available in a range of sizes, with sales from 10am – 2pm on the 27 – 28 November, 4 -5 December and 11-12 December.

Prices start from £40 and payments can be taken by card or cash.

All sales take place outside of the National Trust office, in the Old Good’s Yard, Station Road, HD7 6DH.
