Students from SLU have been delivering Nordmann firs to the Royal Palace since the 1960s.

The Nordman firs have now become known as “The King’s firs” due to this tradition.

Prince Carl Philip studied agriculture and forestry at SLU, and graduated in 2012 with a Diploma in Agricultural and Rural Management.
