    5 is great, 4 isn't too bad either. I like a full looking tree


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,648 ✭✭✭ honeybear


    No 4

    5 for me.

    I think I'd need a good feel first! 3 - 6 all have potential but it depends on how sturdy the branches are.

    Leaning towards 4 though.


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,072 ✭✭✭✭ Ol' Donie


    I've had a recount.

    I like them all.


  • Moderators, Recreation & Hobbies Moderators Posts: 26,589 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Posy


    I'd be a combination of 4 and 6. :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,485 ✭✭✭ Jude13


    5, my OH says 3.


  • Registered Users Posts: 472 ✭✭ Staph


    Number 2 for me. Do you know what species each are? And most importantly, if they shed easily?

    4 or 5!

    I'm so stuck in Christmas that i feel obliged to say any tree in any shape or form once it's in the corner dazzling me.. no 4/5 does it for me

    1 for me because its the most uniform for decorations.

    No 2 is the more authentic looking one,I like the Victorian looking tree's

    I disagree. Original Christmas trees were imported from Norway and Sweden so number 3 would be where it all started. We've just become accustomed to the home grown type of tree.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,913 ✭✭✭ Absolam


    4 & 5 look right to me, but 3 looks like what I imagine a 'perfect' American Christmas Tree to be, and I don't think I've ever seen them for sale around where I live?

    I agree knowing what type of tree each one is would be nice.... and where they're usually available if anyone knows :)

    4

    Number 5.

    I love a big fluffy looking tree!


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,313 ✭✭✭ Cork Lass


    No. 6 for me. Easiest one to decorate and great spacing for large baubles.


  • Registered Users Posts: 603 ✭✭✭ OUTDOORLASS


    No 4 for me. Love up tilting branches.....

    If number 1 and number 5 were to, I dunno, let's just say fall in love some winter get married and reproduce their lovely tree offspring would be my ideal tree :pac: however should those two soul mates never meet ... I'd have to chose number 5. :p I'm not a huge fan of real trees. I'm too ocd for all the gaps with my ornament hanging !

    4 and 6 for me. I might not get to put up a tree this year! Depending on a job we may be moving country in December...I can't plan a thing for Christmas and it's driving me mad!

    Not till early December. I'm trying to mentally prepare for the move...but it might not even happen! The only solid Christmas thing in my diary for this year is watching the Toy Show. :pac:
