LOve these photos, do they still sell Xmas trees at Chopwell?

Thanks. I'm not sure if they still sell trees there. It's not somewhere I get very often these days although I used to go there a lot when I was a kid. This visit was from summer 2006.

I came across these photos when looking through some old photos I'd taken and although there was'nt a lot I thought they should go up on here.
