IF you’re planning to buy a real Christmas tree this festive season, it could be time to start planning where to get it from.
From Pines and Needles to Croft and Cole, we round up some of the top trees at online retailers.
Of course, you can also snap up real Christmas trees at the majority of supermarkets and major retailers closer to Christmas.
But if you prefer to shop from the comfort of your home and have the tree delivered to your doorstep, we list top trees at popular online retailers.
If you can’t decide what sort of tree to get, a Norway Spruce has soft foliage so is perfect for decorating, but it can be prone to dropping needles.
But if you want a tree that’s a little more low maintenance, it’s worth considering a Nordmann as it holds on to more needles.
Below are our favourite Christmas trees to buy online.
Just keep in mind that not all retailers have announced this year’s range yet, so we’ll update this article with more options as we get closer to the day.
Primrose – prices start from £31.99
If you don’t want to spend too much on one tree, Primrose is offering the cheapest real Christmas tree we could find at £31.99.
The tree is a so-called Norway spruce and measures 4ft tall.
The prices at Primrose then go all the way to £124.99, which is a 10ft Nordmann Fir version.
If you order today, keep in mind that you’ll only get it delivered from November 27.
The retailer charges £9.99 for home delivery, so make sure you bear this in mind before you splash out.
Pines and Needles – prices start from £39.95
Christmas tree retailer Pines and Needles has listed a wide range of options on its website, with the prices starting from just £39.95 for a 3ft version.
Its biggest real Christmas tree up for grabs is a 12ft Nordmann Fir, which sets you back a whopping £199.95.
If you decide to shop at the retailer, keep in mind that delivery fees start from £16.95.
Shoppers will receive their tree from November 17 depending on where they’re based.
Croft and Cole – prices start from £54
The prices of Croft & Cole’s Christmas trees start from £54 for a 4ft tree, going all the way up to £94 for a 7.5ft tree.
All Croft & Cole orders that include a Christmas tree come with next-day and named-day delivery options for £8.99.
This applies to mainland UK but excludes the Highlands.
For stationery, candle and wreath orders excluding a Christmas tree, you only have to pay a £3.99 delivery fee.
Delivery is available Monday to Friday, from November 24 until December 21.
John Lewis – prices start from £75
The retailer has listed three real Christmas online, with shoppers able to pre-order for delivery from November 27.
The prices start from £75 for a Nordmann tree, which is available in sizes between 5f and 9ft.
Online shoppers can get the trees delivered for free, but you won’t be able to click and collect.
Where else can I buy a real Christmas tree?
All the major supermarkets usually sell Christmas trees later on in the year, although typically only in store.
Homebase and B&Q have previously also sold real Christmas trees, so it’s worth keeping an eye out over the next month or two.
Before you part with your cash, make sure you shop around as some retailers are running deals when you buy a Christmas tree.
For example, Ikea last year let shoppers get a real tree for just £9.
