    We got ours from littlewoods (I think) about 5 or 6 years ago & we love it, still looks new.

    Got two from littlewoods and both are full. The 1st is 6 years old and still perfect.

    We get a real tree so can't help much. The places the guys suggested already are always popular and then you have places like Woodies and The Range.

    Thanks everyone.

    Its hard to pick them online as they all look amazing on the pictures and the quality can vary hugely when you see then up. Will look at these options

    We got a real tree this year too but the kids wanted it up early in December so it was really shabby by the 6th (and probably not particularly safe from a fire hazard perspective)

    Whilst still a potential hazard, LED lights have reduced the risk significantly as far less heat is generated. Though yes watering them is crucial in terms of how quickly a fire can develop once started. See below.

    I have put an order in from Christmas tree world in the UK. Friend has a beautiful one from them. Not cheapest though.

    Keep an eye on this place, we bought our new tree there at start of December (we were starting to get worried we wouldn't find the one we wanted before Christmas 2020).
