    I'm googled out of it on this one.:( Is there such a thing as a rigid artificial tree, (I mean you don't have to fold down the branches) their fixed, just a case of plug n watch:D

    3ft one would do, prelit or fibre optic but with no assembly whatsoever.

    The only type of tree I could think of like that would be a pop-up tree.

    Posy is right, a pop-up is the closest you'll get - however..... Aldi have an 80cm fibre optic coming into the shops on Sunday for about €19.

    Are you based in Dublin? For the last few years I've gone to the national craft fair in the RDS & there is a stall there which sells pre-lit Ceramic Christmas trees. Pricey, but would last YEARS.... like the one in the tiniest picture known to humanity here.... :rolleyes:

    Found what I was looking for on amazon, unfortunately too big for parcel motel delivery.
    ur 3ft Scandinavian Blue Spruce tree comes with pine cones and berries. It has a dusting of frosting to give it that snow effect.
    It can be used to welcome guests at your front door, to brighten a hallway or even a landing.
    It comes in a copper effect resin pot and is made of a traditional wrapped construction.
    It's ready to go right out of the box and with the addition of a few decorations you can create a really festive feel to your home.
    Size: Height 3ft, Tree Bottom Diameter 16 inches

    Avoca had black box trees a couple of years ago, around 3 feet. Pricy though.

    Just spotted this on Homebase OP, its only 2ft, but might be suitable for you.

    Could you use Parcel Motel for delivery?

    My neighbor found a 3ft prelit tree in Woodies for €40 = it had bulbs & fibre optic & a star on top. You fold down the branches. Looks gorgeous when lit. :)
