Christmas trees near me: 7 Best places to get a real Christmas tree in the Portsmouth area in 2021
THERE are many Christmas tree farms in the Portsmouth area that are sure to put you in the festive spirit.
The festive season is upon us and you might already be turning your attentions to decking the halls.
Many families are sure to go all out with the festive cheer this year after many were unable to celebrate how they wished to last year due to Covid-19 restrictions.
Christmas parties and family time is back on the cards for this year and the most important decoration of all is of course the Christmas tree.
Some people opt for artificial versions, which last a long time and are easier to put up, whilst others prefer the traditional real tree as a staple in their homes over the holidays.
It is important to note that a real Christmas tree lasts for around four weeks before they start to shed their pine needles but you are able to book in a slot for a real tree at some farms this year.
