MEET the man behind your High Street Christmas trees.

Neil Rogers, 50, has been growing Norway spruce and Nordman fir trees for the past 30 years.

He said that they make the perfect festive trees, but there’s one problem – they take up to nine years to grow, and that’s only for a six-footer.

The trees he provided for Berkhamsted and Tring High Streets and the centre of Ivinghoe measure 28 to 30 feet.
