Pick Your Own Christmas Trees - North East

Updated: Nov 3, 2022


For more great ideas, check us out on Facebook, Instagram or twitter



We love Christmas Trees and over the years we have gone back and forwards between a real tree and an artificial tree. The one thing you don't get from an artificial tree is that pine smell. You can actually buy things like air fresheners that hang on the tree to make it smell like a real tree, but even those come no where near the real thing. Over the years more and more places have popped up where you can go and choose your own tree, there are even places where you can chop your own down.

What do you prefer?

Have you seen those hacks where people wrap the artificial tree in film and then store it with the decorations on? That would drive me insane, its all part of the traditions, putting the decorations on together as a family, arguing about who put the lights away and now they're all tangled (even when you wrap them up properly, they always come out tangled!)


(If I missed you from this list, feel free to pop over an email and I will add you to the list)
