The cheapest I've found are http://christmastreedublin.com/ & http://www.aware.ie/site/comments/aw...as_trees_2011/

I'm usually on the lookout for the reject mutant trees that you find at petrol stations. We usually get something that's tall and slim with loads of branches - which suits our sitting room perfectly! So if anyone knows of such a place, let me know please!

Avoca Rathcoole (7' are €60, but they're fabulous looking trees) and Corkagh Nursery outbound on the N7 before Kingswood have them too. I bought my Dad's there last year and it was very cheap.

Here is a list too:

The place in Slade Valley are €25 & €35. Gonna look at them later.
Woodies seem to have them too.

More info here! http://blog.doneganlandscaping.com/2...ristmas-trees/

I got two 8' trees in the Slade Valley Christmas Tree farm (opposite the golf club) for €70 last night. You can cut your own there, so best to go in the day!
It's up behind Saggart - so not that far from Tallaght if you want to take a spin.

Anyone know anywhere near D7 / Stonybatter / NCR area? Saw some over in the park shopping centre, but not sure about them... for some reason I thought there'd be someone in the phoenix park (there might be, i haven't looked that closely) but I need to find somewhere near, since I'll be walking it back home

Shiner11 I suggest you post ideas that are actually feasible/legal. A lot of forest is private / government land so you'd being breaking the law.

Where are they selling trees near the Silver Tassie? Is it out of the car park or somewhere else local to there?

Half-price trees

All trees,artificial and real are now selling for half price in Homebase in Nutgrove.
I picked up a 6ft,noble fir real tree for 20 yoyos.I presume all branches are doing the same offer.
