When's the best time to buy your tree?

Towards the end of November is about the right to time to start to think about where you will buy your Christmas tree from.

The first weekend 3rd/4th December is probably the best time as you will have the pick of the best. The tree can then be left outside until you’re ready for it. It’s also another tick on your ‘Christmas To Do’ list.

Unless you are buying from a Choose and Cut plantation most trees will be harvested in early to mid-November. So leaving your buying day until later in December thinking you will get a ‘fresher’ tree may not actually be a good idea. Leaving it later will only mean you get to have what is left.
