Christmas trees: Where to buy your real fir this year

Planning to put your Christmas tree up but don’t actually have a tree? Or just want to throw away your old one and spruce your home up with something new?

Rather than going for artificial this year, why not try out a real Christmas tree? Yes, they only last for around four weeks and can make a bit of a mess. (But so can fake ones, let’s be honest.)

The satisfaction of having a real tree in your home is second to none. And they don’t have to cost a fortune with the likes of Ikea, Homebase and B&Q selling super cheap firs.

So which tree do you go for? Traditionally, the Norway spruce was the number one choice. However, its bright green needles tend to fall pretty quickly, sparking the need for non-drop varieties (including Nordman and Fraser firs) to be sold.

Here are the best real Christmas trees you can buy this year.
