Leicester Are You Ready? The Tallest Christmas Trees We’ve Ever Had!

By Matt From Sgc @MattSGC

Now it is Christmas time again, and it’s time to start thinking about buying that Christmas tree. Real Christmas trees are the classic choice, and they tend to be the most popular choice, even with the growing trend of artificial trees.


Sapcote Garden Centre in Leicestershire have been re-stocked with their Christmas trees for 2013, and to help customers up to this holiday season, they have created a useful Christmas Tree Info Guide (, that includes all the points you need to know before buying your Christmas tree this year.

They also had a bit of a surprise when opening up the crates, with over 100 Christmas trees at 7.5ft and above, 5 times more than in 2012, a spokesperson from Sapcote Garden Centre could not believe their eyes:


“It is quite amazing really, while we were unloading the lorry I said to the staff, “These trees look quite tall this year”, and when we started to unload them, we realised how much taller they were!”

“We had to completely re-arrange the display area to fit the larger ones in!”


A fairly recent study by the National Christmas Tree Association, found that there are currently over 100,000 people employed in the Christmas tree industry in the US alone. Many of them will be hoping for a busy season this year, as the economic downturn shows many shoppers cutting back spending on luxuries, and you could argue, that a real Christmas tree, is one of those luxuries.
