Suppliers of high quality real Christmas Trees and accessories
Back in 2014 when Disney’s Frozen was achieving world domination, long bobs were everywhere and Facebook was filled with videos of people pouring buckets of ice water over their heads to raise awareness of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Mike and Nic were planning a new venture. The brother and sister team at Greenland Seeds had a little chat in the office about selling something other than grass and wildflower seed and the idea was born…
Throughout the year Mike and Nic started chatting to growers they know through their links to farmers and the agricultural industry. An unlikely duo, who, not long ago still squabbled over biscuits in the office – and toys at home – together made lots of visits to Christmas tree plantations. Their knowledge of Christmas trees and how they are grown and cared for grew from there. (They now get on like a house on fire and can often be found chatting rubbish about Christmas trees all year round!)
Christmas 2015 – Bellasize Christmas trees opened their doors and welcomed people from all over Howdenshire to buy real Christmas Trees. The reception was overwhelming and all involved thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to get festive and sell trees.
2016 – Bellasize opened up once more, this time with a larger selection of trees and offering a delivery service within the local area; which proved very popular. People were starting to notice that BCT were not only offering a vast selection of pre-cut real Christmas trees but also advice and support on caring for them. All in a sheltered flood lit barn and offering a warm welcome.
2017 – This year saw the introduction of an incentive scheme coined “Trees for Schools”. The scheme was created to give something back to the community and was rolled out with great success. It also saw BCT go “on tour” with “Chrissy Cabin”; seen pictured below. Plus the range of farm-fresh foliage was expanded with a vast selection of wreaths, swags and garlands on offer.
BCT was really starting to find its groove – offering affordable real trees, stylish Christmas accessories and expert advice. People were starting to review us on Facebook and the reviews were 5*.
2018 – BCT open their doors for a fourth year with a brand new look and feel; a new logo, new venues and new products. All trees are still locally sourced, sustainably grown and fresh-cut.
2019- BCT celebrated its five-year anniversary and another successful year. The late-night opening was extremely popular and it really was a great way to get Christmas 2019 started. Here’s to another great Christmas!
2020- This year, BCT have adapted the barns to ensure we can all enjoy Christmas safely, while still keeping the welcoming and festive feeling we all look forward to each year. With our high-quality Yorkshire grown trees and friendly staff, we’re sure you’ll get in the Christmas spirit! A new Click + Collect service is launched to further minimise contact for all.
All the very best from,
The Bellasize Christmas Trees Team! 🙂
