Drynie Woodlands

Drynie Woodlands Estate 450X300

For the last eight years, top quality Christmas trees for Dobbies Garden Centres have been grown at Drynie Woodlands, Inverness, its proximity to Edinburgh enables us to have a close working relationship with the farm. This family run business is managed by Kjeld Kristensen and his team, bolstered at harvesting time by many that return year after year to help harvest, net and deliver their gorgeous cut and pot-grown Christmas Trees.

Kjeld studied agriculture at college in his native home of Denmark and became an arable farmer when he qualified. Nine years later, the large estate he was then working on needed a forester to look after its 500 hectares of woodland, and that saw the beginning of a new chapter working with Christmas Trees.

Twelve years later, in 2000, Kjeld was offered the position of manager at Drynie Woodlands. With his wife and four children they made the move from Denmark to Scotland and the rest, they say, is history.

Real Trees At Drynie Woodlands 450X300

Drynie Woodlands is an area of 1,000 hectares. This area, just north of Inverness is blessed with nutrient rich, well draining soils, and fields protected from the worst of the winter cold by the Gulf Stream. It is these conditions that lend the farm to growing the very best quality Christmas Trees. Kjeld also takes a special interest in the stunning heathland and mature woodlands that form part of the farm and every care is taken to protect and conserve these natural habitats and the wildlife that inhabit them.
