Over the years my love for artificial trees had waned even with my cleaning compulsion I have been drawn to try real trees and although we like last years when the folks over at Pines & Needles asked us to try their 6ft real trees I jumped at the chance to see what a specialist tree company had to offer.
Having visited their website it seemed that they had more to offer than I originally thought with indoor/ outdoor trees, pre-decorated, artificial and pot grown trees on offer so as we were waiting delivery of our tree yesterday I was super excited for it to arrive!
For me I loved that home delivery is an option as last year we had to valet the car after fetching our tree and although I am based in Nottingham if you are London some of their deliveries even come with the drivers in kilts and christmas hats! … Now that I would have liked to see!
With out delivery we were also sent a base and a small potted tree for Joshua to decorate himself and when everything arrived I was really impressed with the packaging, the mini tree was wrapped in cardboard so it was super protected and the 6ft tree was wrapped in really thick plastic and inside it was wrapped in a netting holding it tight…. it even had some support sticks at the top to protect the delicate top of the tree!
The first thing I noticed about this tree from the first glance was just how thick and bushy it is! … I don’t think we have ever seen such a full looking Christmas Tree before add that to the fact the shape was utterly beautiful I have to say I have been throughly blown over at just how magnificent this tree is!
It smells amazing and even my husband has said that it’s the best tree we have had to date!
