Help finding a good artificial tree

Hello, every year I say I must not buy any more decorations for my tree as there's no more room but decided the simple solution is to get a bigger tree!

Has anyone seen nice ones around? I can't get out to look at them in person so have to buy online or ask my parents. I'm looking for a bushy green 6 or 6.5foot tree but I want it to be nice! Not keen on trees where you can see big gaps and wire. Downstairs we have this tree (£50 bargain but was sadly the last one in the shop)

It has 2 different textures/type of branch but not especially looking for that or anything. That one came from home base and it's brilliant but I got a £150 fibre optic tree from there and the base broke trying to put it together followed by the fiberoptic bit dying the year after :/

Any help in finding a nice one is much appreciated

  • How about the 6ft Newport one from The Range
    I tried posting a direct link but for some reason it kept coming up as a blank page. They have it in 7ft and 8ft too.

    I think Argos has nice ones too

  • Check on amazon they usually have quality trees and they ship fast.
  • I've spent the whole day today looking for a cheap but bushy 6.5 or 7 foot tree. I think I've looked at every one in existence... and read every review. Finally found a 6.5ft tree on Tesco Direct that has hundreds of near perfect reviews, for the pricely sum of.......£20! Haven't collected it yet so can't back up the glowing reviews but im glad I found it because I'm guessing it won't stay in stock for long
  • Hi Lolamancity
    Is the 6.5ft slim tree? I've had my eye on that one but thought I would do a bit of research first, looks like you’ve done it for me, great review and it look like there's no gaps :T

    We've had a cheap Argos tree for years but we finally threw it out when we bought our first house and moved earlier this year.

    Excited about decorating our own house for Christmas this year, I just treated us to a new artificial tree from Balsam Hill. Paid he extra for the pre lit version. This one:

    http://www.balsamhill.co.uk/Swiss-Mountain-Pine-Slim-Christmas-Tree-p/smp-t-uk.htm?1=1&CartID=0

    That's one of the cheaper ones and on sale. Some of the prices are :eek: It has a 10 year foliage warranty and 3 years on the lights though so I expect it to last us until we next move house, hopefully for many many years. Just need to find somewhere to get a nice skirt for it, I think Next have some nice ones.

    Looks fab, I've been looking longingly at their site for a few weeks now. Desperately want a realistic pre-lit one as I get totally fed up trying to put 2 sets of lights on and I don't want to do anymore after that! Trying to find a way of convincing the OH we need a £200 tree when we only bought a new one 3 years ago!
