Fake Christmas Trees

    Where do you get your fake trees from? We're looking for a really good one possibly pre light that looks impressive and will last for years to come. Ideally we would like somewhere we can go to view them but if there's a reputable company with decent listings we'd be willing to source online

    I got mine in Homestore and more. It’s 7ft tall and a beast really full as well.

    Ditto Loughc - I got ours from Homestore and more - think it's the Nebraska(?) - it's beautiful, I absolutely love it!

    I got mine here

    It was pricey but definitely worth it, we've had it years and it still looks as good as the day we got it.

    Got ours in BT, its now 14/15 yrs old, still looks fab you get what you pay for in fake trees, buy one that looks realistic not shiny and gaudy with spray snow or anything on branches

    We got ours (both of them) in Homestore & More. My folks got theirs in Woodies & my sister got hers online through Littlewoods. All are fantastic (ours marginally better though ;) ) and have lasted us years. We've no plans to change ours anyway.

    We have ones from Lidl, house of Fraser and BT. By far the nicest is the BT one and it was the middle price. We’ve had it 7 years and it’s as fabulous as ever, one from house of Fraser is really not holding up as well so will need to replace it.

    The Lidl one was to fill an extra space but I think I will be heading to Home store and more to replace in the next year or two

    Then I can move the Lidl one to somewhere else and slowly build my fake tree family

    Thanks for the suggestions everyone.
    How have your experiences been with pre lit trees? Do you feel there are enough lights or do you add more? Do the lights last?


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


    I have a BT tree, but it's not pre-lit.

    I wouldn't want a pre-lit tree because I'm fussy with my lights, and I'd want the option to change them if I wanted to.

    I'd be unsure of buying a pre lit tree. If the lights blow on it they can be a pain.
    Regarding where to purchase I'd recommend having a look around Home store and more, Brown Thomas, Woodies, Local DIY places, even Tesco.
    You'd find one to your taste and you'd get a feeling how sturdy it is.
    What is your budget?

    Got our one up the North years ago and its a great one. If you are within driving distance then do a bit of online research and you might get a bargain. Good luck!
