This Way Up: Real Christmas trees

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 3:33 pm on 1 December 2016

Monica and Paul Mallinson grow real Christmas trees in rural Wairarapa. Every year they sell nearly 1,000 different firs, spruces and pines all grown on their 4 and a half acre section...along with some more obscure varieties too. They are just heading into their busiest time of year when people come to buy the tree they want to decorate in about 24 days' time, a few weeks when they make pretty much all their money. This Way Up's Simon Morton went to visit them.
