Walked passed a place near us and they seemed to be £40-50 for a tallish one - don't think I have ever paid that before. I know they are cheaper in places like Homebase, etc.

But the ones you get in Homebase for a tenner will be as bald as a twig by Christmas day. Round our way the lovely ones that the needles stay on seem to be about £6-7 per foot, so for our living room we'd want a 7 foot one which would be £42-49 which sounds ludicrous but they do look exactly the same after the three-four weeks that they are there as they did when they first go up. IN fact we've got last year's and the year before still chucked behind our shed blush!!! And although they are totally brown, ALL the needles are still on them!! I really need to get rid!

I paid £15 for my beyoodiful no-drop fir. Smaller traditional spruces are going for a fiver by the sawmills/farms.
Garden centre of poshness has the same tree as mine (size and bree I mean, they've not cloned it fgrin] for £35. Swizzers.

I have an 8ft one that was around £50.

In NE -got ours from the local florist. Its only little (about 4ft) and cost £15 which is quite bargainous imo grin

They start at about a tenner for an ordinary type of tree, about 5ft. And then the sky appears to be the limit!

Hmmm sounds like our local place is charging the going rate then. We need at least a 6 ft one as have high ceilings.

£35 to 40 and the needles stayed on until we abandoned it in the back garden in January.

£47 for 8 footer, with free delivery, from local place in village. Always look great on the 12th day of Christmas!

£18 for a 4ft one with roots - I don't live in a hobbit house, I just have a puppy so the tree is on a little table to avoid it being mauled. A lesson learnt after my father's lab tore their tree down to get at all the chocolate baubles!

Asteria Thu 09-Dec-10 21:17:23

that is from a sawmill in N Yorks btw

SaorAlba Thu 09-Dec-10 22:43:55

Our 6ft tree last year was £20. From the Forestry Commission.
