David Domoney takes Ambassador role at Needlefresh


Broadcaster and Chartered Horticulturist David Domoney, presenter of numerous television shows for ITV, including their flagship prime time show Love Your Garden, joins forces with Needlefresh to promote their wide range of real, UK grown Christmas trees.


Needlefresh are a grower led co-operative, with over 10 million Christmas trees planted. Needlefresh pride themselves on planting more trees per year than those harvested with each Hectare of trees absorbing over 70 tonnes of carbon each year. 


Choosing a real Christmas tree is a fun family activity with many people now choosing the Nordman Fir to grace their home. Every tree is unique and is a festive and romantic symbol of family, tradition and nostalgia. Needlefresh supply many of the UK’s blue chip retailers with their lovingly grown Christmas trees.


David will be inspiring the nation, not only sharing the beauty of having a real tree at Christmas, but also educating the consumer. He will be highlighting the many benefits of Christmas tree production as a crop and motivating the nation to take time to choose which variety of tree to go for ahead of the December rush.


Christopher Hood, founder and current Chairman of Needlefresh said, “We have some big messages to get out to the real Christmas tree customer, not just about the increasing range of trees we have to offer, but just as importantly to explain how good real Christmas trees are for the environment. We felt we needed a recognised authority from the horticultural world to get those messages out there and we are delighted that David has agreed to help us.”


David Domoney said, “I’ve always loved Christmas and real Christmas trees! There’s nothing like the smell of pine or fir trees in your home to greet you when you wake up in the morning. It’s such as fresh fragrance and brings back happy memories of wintertime. 


Domoney added “On a recent visit to Needlefresh, I was not only impressed with the scale and quality of their vast production, but also the passion of the growing teams. They care for each individual tree as in the forefront of their mind they appreciate the importance each and every tree will have for the family who buys as a centre piece for their home at Christmas. Real Christmas trees are going to become increasingly important in these environmentally sensitive times and people are going to love the range and quality of trees that Needlefresh are bringing to market. I am really looking forward to working with them.”


Needlefresh will be rolling out their exclusive Signature range of real cut trees to garden centres this year together with an even bigger range of pot-grown trees, all supported by a brand-new suite of Point of Sale.
