Looking for a real Christmas tree near you in Staffordshire?

Buy your real Christmas tree from Cannock Chase Forest for a wonderful experience and the highest quality, UK-grown Christmas trees.

Christmas at Cannock Chase Forest is a little bit different this year. Although Santa and his grotto are taking a break, we’re still a great place to escape to during the festive season. 

From 26 November to 20 December, the Cannock Chase Forest Christmas Trees team will be on hand to help you choose from hundreds of spruces, firs and pines in the fresh, wintery air of our beautiful forest.

Click and Collect is also available, so your perfect tree can be wrapped and ready for you on arrival. Visit the Cannock Chase Christmas Tree website to order yours now.

Christmas activities in the forest

  • Wintery walks on our way marked walking trails
  • Christmas gifts for cycling enthusiasts, and bike hire to explore the forest from Cannock Chase Cycles
  • Warm up and refuel with festive treats from Grounds Café – and there are extra goodies like mulled wine and hot fresh doughnuts to be enjoyed from the traditional Christmas refreshment cabins who will be here at the weekends and midweek with a smaller limited offering

Please note, there is no Santa's Grotto this year.

We have measures in place to try to  make sure that visitors coming to buy Christmas Trees have car parking spaces available. We are doing this by reserving a limited number of spaces that can be used for up to an hour, free of charge, for people coming to our car park to buy a tree.  We will have two car parking stewards who will manage these spaces.

However, in light of the extremely high visitor numbers we have had throughout this year, we can’t offer any guarantees that there will always be a space available when people arrive at Cannock Chase Forest – whether that’s to buy a Christmas Tree or to visit the forest. So we’re asking people to please plan accordingly – our forests are quieter at the beginning and end of each day. If the car park is full or too busy please be prepared to turn around and come another day.
