Desperate need for a christmas tree!

Found 18th Dec 2009
We put our tree up about a week ago, it's 8' with 500+ lights. It took ages to put up and looked gorgeous. During the night we heard a loud crash, went downstairs to find the tree on the floor and the dog in her bed chewing on a bauble! =[ anyway, the base is now broken and the trees a mess, with lots of broken baubles. We went out today to Asda, focus, b&q and tesco and all were sold out other than 3', black ones, and really skimpy ones. I can't find a decent replacement tree! I need it to be anywhere from 5-8' really bushy, and green- not too mithered about prelit or not and it has to be in store. Everywhere seems to be extremely overpriced or out of stock =[ does anywhere know somewhere with them in stock?

tescos had their finest 7ft one reduced to half price instore this week..
Sounds like a family Christmas I had, a few years back.

Everyone was sat round nattering when the tree started to lean over all on its own and eventually collapsed on the gathering. :oops:

We have now replaced the base with the bottom of an old office swivel chair - works a treat, too and is actually less visible than the old plastic base.
depends where in the country u live the are pleanty of nurseries that do grottos try looking on the web its just the point of trolling through try home base or the like
Good luck:thumbsup:

Sorry been out since posting! Thanks for all of the replies! I'll have a read of them now =]
I nippe to A bigger Tesco last night and also had no trees left =[ also went to sainsburys and only had small ones! I might give Focus and Wickes a try today, and maybe Gordon Riggs. I can't really think of anywhere else! I'd give Argos a go but have no idea what they'll look like =\

Thanks go the links crustine, I've been through them but Wouldnt really like ordering online without seeing them in the flesh first especially if spending quite a bit of money on them. =[
Well, I just came back after a 4 hour tree hunt stopping off at:
The range

NONE! I couldn't believe it...

We also went to Gordon Riggs garden centre which had some nice ones but too expensive... and last stop was the All In One garden centre middleton... they had some stunning trees, really life like! Most were expensive, but they had a Blue Fir range that were resonably priced, and thought we couldn't have a christmas without a tree so ended up buying a 6' 6, bit shorter than I liked but it means I can place it on a table high up so the dog can't attack it this time...

rep those that helped I hope
