Realistic Christmas Trees - Anyone have/had one?


I have a real Christmas tree every year but I'm thinking about getting a realistic Christmas tree. You can get 'realistic' or 'most realistic'.

Has anyone got one/had one? Would you rate it or ...?

I think mine is- it's very bushy and just looks really good! It is a black box one, it wasn't cheap but has lasted about 9 years so far!
I haven't got a pic as it says file is too large!

I just have a normal fake one haha. I like them more because they're less work (needle drop etc) than real. I do miss the smell though!
Oh by the way pp when it says my file is too large (on my phone) I take a screenshot of the picture I want to upload then upload that instead

I have just ordered a tree from balsam hill with is supposed to be very realistic for our second tree. It's supposed to be delivered tomorrow so I'll let you know what it's like when I get it. We normally have a real tree so I can't wait to see how it looks.

Mine's a cheap £20 special from amazon. I want a real one but OH says no, so if these aren't too expensive I may look into it.

My sister had a super bushy one from b&q (about £35), it looked real but only lasted 2 years, the branches started falling off last Christmas.

Cannot tell you how excited your picture made me haha. It's a gorgeous tree! We only have a small flat so normally have a 5ft one but I think this year I need 6ft as I'm tired of being taller than my tree haha. I hadn't heard of these realistic ones before but I'll probably just cheap it at Argos again, it works well enough usually.

I've never had much bother with real tress, needles dropping and taking it down but at 70-80 a year I'm tempted.

I have a M&S fake tree which is great but I think I'll miss the real look.

Balsam is exactly where I'm looking. The girls Dad has one but I can't remember it that well.

Following!

We were buying our house last year so no money for a real one and used our rubbish fake tree, I really love real trees so am also after a very good fake to make myself feel better since DH doesn't want more real trees

The only thing I noticed from the kids Dad was it was really chunky - there are loads of options but so hard when you can't see it!
