For a magical family day out and Christmas to match, zip along to the CrimboTrees’ Christmas Tree Shop at The Jenners Depository on Balgreen Road for a premium quality Scottish Christmas tree.

Open from Thursday 1st December, the kids (and you!) will be wide-eyed at the lush green trees, giant inflatable Santa, and twinkly lights in this wee winter wonderland in the heart of Edinburgh.

Making a day of choosing your tree won’t involve any parking headaches either, thanks to the kind folk at Edinburgh Self Storage opening their car park to all CrimboTrees’ customers.

The only reserved space is for Santa’s sleigh!

Helpful staff are easy to spot in their Santa hats, always on hand to advise you on the best tree for you.

Reserve/order your tree online at now – with the option to click and collect, or they’ll deliver your Christmas tree to most Edinburgh city postcodes (EH1 to EH14).

CrimboTrees supporting Maggie’s Edinburgh

Every year since 2016, CrimboTrees has donated £5 from every Christmas tree sold to Maggie’s Edinburgh, pioneers in care for anyone affected by cancer through their model of practical, emotional and social support.

This year they’re proud to be keeping up this important Christmas tradition.

Maggie’s expertise is freely available to everyone in one-to-one sessions, workshops, or support groups. Find out more about their services or help to raise funds by visiting the website -

Real Christmas trees versus artificial ones

And just in case you were wondering if a real Christmas or an artificial one is greener, the Carbon Trust says a real Christmas tree has a ‘much lower’ carbon footprint than an artificial tree, particularly if disposed of thoughtfully.

A real Christmas tree naturally absorbs CO2, releases oxygen, provides a habitat for wildlife, and captures carbon from the atmosphere during the 10-12 years they take to grow.

That’s why you’ve got to make this a CrimboTrees Christmas!
