Meet The team

Just like Santa we spend all year preparing for Christmas. Meet Euan, Dougie and Russ, the team who run Duff Trees, they are assisted by an ever increasing number of Elves as Christmas gets ever closer.



A beef and cattle farmer who 35 years ago realised the need for diversification and began selling Christmas trees. In his first year he sold 7. Over the years the business has grown and now it’s around 40,000 each year. Euan loves golf, rugby and of course his family!


Dougie Duff

After gaining a degree in sport management Dougie toured the world and having seen much of it decided that home was actually where it was at. Dougie is a key part of the family business and works hard, whilst nursing various sporting injuries.


Russ Gilbert

Russ really knows Christmas Trees. He’s been in the business for most of his working life and brings knowledge and wisdom to the role. He’s developed our national network of outlets for the trees. Russ has a great sense of humour and a lover of rugby, football and cricket.

Special mentions for Sandy (and his muscles) working hard amongst the trees year round. Also to Flick who keeps us in check and feeds us and our customers each Christmas. Not to forget the army of helpers each Christmas who help us to make our retail operation such a success.

Duff Trees Video

In the video opposite Dougie Duff tells the story of Duff Trees and the level of effort and care that goes into growing the Christmas Trees.

There is also some aerial footage of the Christmas Tree farm, located in Central Scotland on the edge of Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park.
