The 10 best artificial Christmas trees
Thursday 08 December 2011
The 4ft Delaware Potted Fir Tree is one of the most authentic looking trees we've seen. Decorated with pine cones and berries, it looks great even without decorations.
The department store has come up trumps with this pre-lit 7ft tree. It has a natural look and you can give it a fresh feel year after year with different decorations.

Fed up with buying pretty tree decorations that get lost in full-on foliage? Try this minimalist 6ft woodland tree with a beautiful Scandinavian feel.

If you find traditional trees too twee, this 6ft contemporary Snowy Paper Pine Tree should hit the mark. It has a thin trunk with a full-bodied top and artificial snow.
5. Marks & Spencer
M&S has come up with an ingenious tree that's specially shaped to fit snugly into the corner of a room so you can have all the festive style of a standard 6ft tree without losing lots of space.
For those with a large room or high ceilings who like the winter wonderland look, this spectacular 7ft Snowstorm Christmas tree, currently half price, is ideal.

From £99.99, thegardencentregroup.co.uk
The Bayberry "Feel Real" tree is as good as it gets. It comes with or without LED lights and in three different sizes.
Add a bit of camp to your Christmas with this 2ft pink tree with bendy branches. Great for a child's bedroom or just to add a bit of gaiety to your decor.
Can't bear the thought of tangled lights and broken baubles? Check out this 6ft pop-up, pre-decorated and pre-lit Carousel tree that fits into the smallest of rooms.
Ideal as a festive centrepiece or on a sideboard, this mini everlasting "pine" tree has fold-out branches to decorate. It certainly won't break the bank and has a hessian base.
