Tall Timber? – How To Get The Ideal Size Tree For Your Home

With the festive season almost upon us, the time for picking out your Christmas tree is nigh. To ensure you get the best possible effect from your Christmas tree as well as to make sure that it fits in the space you’re planning to display it, it is worthwhile taking measurements to ensure that you purchase the correct size for the surroundings. Our grade A Nordmann fir trees come in three sizes, 4-5ft, 5-6ft and 6-7ft so finding a tree size to suit your home should be hassle-free.

Measure the space the tree will sit in.

If you haven’t considered it already read here, for tips on where to place your Christmas tree (Useful hint: not near naked flames or heat sources!)

Once you have found a suitable location for your tree, the next thing to do is make sure your tree will fit in the available space. Bearing in mind the average British ceiling is around 8ft in height, you will require at least 6 inches of space between the top of the tree and the ceiling, this will prevent the tree marking or damaging the paintwork on your ceiling as well as providing enough room to accommodate treetop decorations such as a star or angel, once a stand is utilised.

A useful tip to bear in mind is that once a stand is utilised, the overall height of the tree can be increased by up to a foot. So before you go and grab the biggest tree you can make sure you factor the added height a stand can make into your considerations.
