7ft for £39. I have seen cheaper, but they didn't look as pretty. We got our tree from the same place last year and it only dropped a handful of needles through the whole of advent until 12th night, I'm hoping for the same this year.

I've budgeted £20, prob about 4 or 5 feet I hope

We got a potted tree from Homebase. It's 4ft and was £30, but we got it when it was 25% off so we paid £22.50 plus £3.95 for delivery.

Oh 7ft around here would be around £50-60 if I recall. We had a 5ft last year and was around £40 I think... going to go for smaller potted one this year!

9ft. Usually pay about £60.

You can't get them for less than £50 around here (Wiltshire). We has to get a fake tree a couple of years back aa we just can't afford a fresh one each year.

When I was a child my dad paid about £1 per foot of tree. Makes me feel old!

I picked a real up yesterday from ikea for £25 and they gave me a £20 voucher to use in January.
Its really nice, a touch under 6 foot and almost as wide at the bottom, very bushy.

I also bought a lovely artificial tree from Asda this year for £35 which is a 6ft green tree with snow covering. Really impressed for the money.

Usually about £40 for a 7 ft tree, excellent quality from our local "sells everything" shop, I'm sure they would last into February.

Venture 3 miles into the Cheshire triangle and they'll be almost double that...

In previous years we've got a 5.5-6ft one from a garden centre and it's set us back between £50-60 including the wooden block

Last year and this year we've got ours from a Xmas Tree farm. So much cheaper. 7.5ft and its £26 plus we got the fun of having a morning walking round a field of Xmas trees to find our 'perfect' one. Just got to go down next week and chop it down
