In our opinion you can’t beat a real Christmas tree.

Here are our top expert tips for selecting the perfect tree for Christmas 2013.

The very best traditional trees are fresh ones so if possible try and go to a grower. Details of British growers can be found via www.christmastree.org.uk.

The smell of a Norway spruce is something the traditionalists favour, but if you forget to water it then the needles will drop and they will be everywhere. Fraser and Nordman are lower maintenance. Scots pine are best for keeping their needles and also give a wonderful festive fragrance reminiscent of childhood Christmases.

If you want to display beads and strings of decorations then go for a bushy one. If you prefer to hang baubles then a tall pointy one with open boughs works really well. Our top three dangling decorations are below.

In the Westcountry we recommend a trip to Bailey Ridge where you can pick your own tree and see their reindeer at the same time. To find out more, please visit www.baileyridgechristmastrees.co.uk.
