The most photographed Christmas tree in the world has left Kielder Forest for London. The tree will end up outside the Houses of Parliament at the base of Big Ben.

Kielder Forest supplies many of the civic trees for towns and cities around the country. Forestry Commission tree sale centres will soon be opening to the public. They include centres at Kielder Castle, Rothbury and Hamsterley Forest. For more information click here.
