Best place to buy a fake Xmas tree?

    Decided taking down the tree in January that we really need to invest in a new tree. The old one is very old and looking kinda sad!!
    Where is the best place to buy one that will last many years? Would be interested in a big(ish) tree.
    I know brown Thomas has fab trees but I am sure they are pricey so any recommendations would be great. Thanks.

    You can get some crackers in decent garden centres. Lovely big full ones, that look authentic. You'd probably be looking at €120 to €150 but they last years.

    I usually get mine in Woodies. :)
    Argos have a nice selection- but it's hard buying when you don't get to see what you're getting in real life, so to speak.

    Dunnes is always worth a look. They usually have some lovely ones.

    I got my first ever tree about 7 years ago in Argos and its still fab! Although I understand that it's hard to purchase something you can't see first- but if I remember correctly some of the larger stores had trees displayed and decorated in store :) woodies also do a fabulous selection every year !

    B&Q, Homebase & Woodies all have a good selection of trees in a range of prices. Dunnes & Home Store & More also have them but I didn't think they were as nice. I picked mine up in Homebase a few years ago and it came with 100 free decorations. I think I got mine towards the start of December and stock was already running low.

    M50 Christmas Shop / Beech Vista Garden Centre. Have a large range of Christmas decorations every year.

    My brother got a great tree in B&Q but the only down side is there's over 200 pieces to assemble every year!

    I got a new "main tree" in Homestore and More last year. Its huge, very lush. It doesn't look cheap and there are no gaps. It was around €180 mark I think.

    The orchard in Cellbridge, we got ours there a few years ago, it was in the month of September also. Everyone thinks its a real tree also

    We got an artificial tree there last year. There wasn't a massive price difference between what we paid here versus the likes of woodies/ b&q but I thought the quality of the tree was so much better.

    I was also looking in homestore, and nearly bought there, but I think the trees needed to be fully assembled one branch at a time which is fine if your tree is small but ours isn't.

    I think all of the websites had good info and pictures.

    Depending where you're based, Johnstown Garden Centre outside Naas. Rathwood outside Tullow. Or even Newlands Garden Centre. Wood is does have decent trees too.

    The last plastic tree I got was in Dunnes I believe, was nice. Maybe 35 euro or so.
