Pull a Pine

Get your wellies on, and dig out your hats and scarves for a wonderful festive day in nature.

This year’s Pull a Pine will be held over 2 days on the weekend of 3 & 4 December, giving you more choice on which day or days to book.

The Pull a Pine village will be on the heath, with live music, Xmas crafting, refreshments, hot tasty food, and mulled cider.

Whether finding your perfect, (or ‘wonky’) Xmas tree or gathering foliage for amazing festive decorations, what better way to decorate your home than with locally sourced natural foliage that also helps regenerate this rare habitat. Your ticket allows you to take home as many pine trees as you like.

Heathland is a semi-natural habitat that can quickly revert to scrub and woodland, losing rare species adapted to the open landscape. Invasive pine trees, planted in forestry plantations, have taken over some of our heathland. By removing pines, we can help save some of our rare heathland species.

This year’s Pull a pine is on Hyde’s Heath – added to Arne in 2019 – which is being restored back to open heathland.
