When to buy a Real Christmas Tree?

This is quite an important factor when deciding to select a Christmas tree. If you are a first time customer you should consider the space and room temperature when deciding when to purchase. Regular customers may have traditions on when to bring a tree inside their home and they also have a fairly good idea how long it will last. If you are unsure it would be best not to buy too early. Each year after your first purchase you can buy a few days earlier. We recommend using a water stand which helps keep your tree fresh for longer and keeping your tree away from direct heating sources. The traditional date to buy a tree is 8th December, so just before or after this date is the best time to choose your tree.
