Majland was one of the founders of the Brdr Majland nursery, now better known as Majland, northern Europe's leading producer of Nordmann fir Christmas tree seedlings. Majland is now part of the Green Team Group, which also specialises in the production and sale of Christmas trees.
After qualifying as a gardener, Majland ran the Majland Herbaceous nursery with his father. In the early 1980s, he established a forestry contracting business together with his brother, Ole Olgard and John Jensen, focusing their activities on ornamental greenery.
Later, the brothers decided to produce Christmas trees and, to make the enterprise more economical, sowed the seeds themselves.
During the 1990s, the brothers bought land in Scotland and planted 400ha with a couple of million Christmas trees.
Today, Green Team Group also has plantations in Denmark, Poland, Hungary, Germany, the Netherlands and France.
In addition, 1.5 million Christmas trees will be sold in 2011 to European consumers via Green Team Holding.
Majland had planned to retire in 2014.
