Christmas tree sales raise money to fund conservation work in the Peak District
Our rangers and volunteers have been busy this month selling British sustainably grown trees in the lead up to Christmas.
The trees have been on sale at Longshaw near Sheffield, Ilam Park near Ashbourne and in Castleton, and have been extremely popular.
Ranger Mark Cunningham organises the sales at Ilam Park and has a team of willing volunteers helping to serve customers, wrap the trees in netting and help people load the trees into vehicles.
"All the money we raise from selling the trees goes back into conservation work in the Peak District, so it's a really worthwhile cause. I enjoy meeting lots of locals who are making it a tradition to choose their tree with the family."
If you fancy volunteering with us next year at our tree sales, please do get in touch!
