CHRISTMAS trees are fast running out at a country park after a record number were sold in one weekend.

The sight of Christmas trees in the back of cars has been a familiar one along the A3 from Queen Elizabeth Country Park, north of Clanfield.

More than 700 trees were sold at the beauty spot in the space of two days.

Manager of the country park Tim Speller said: ‘This was the busiest weekend that we have ever had, helped no doubt by the fantastic seasonal weather.

‘The trees are brought in by Forestry Commission staff and are all sustainably grown in the UK. The three species sold are the Nordman fir, Norway spruce and the Lodgepole pine.’
