Tree Height Guide

Struggling to work out which height you need? Here's what you need to consider:


Obviously trees don't grow to perfect round heights :) We typically measure from the base of the tree (the point at which we cut the trunk) to around halfway up the "leader", but there is some variance in this depending on the leader length. The leader is the bit you put the star (or fairy!) on, so the bit between the top branches and the top of the tree. Bear in mind that your tree could be a bit bigger than the stated height (sometimes up to a foot). You can always cut a bit off the top of the leader, though. Your tree will be at least as tall the stated height.


If you're putting your tree in any sort of stand, that will add some height to the tree, so don't forget to factor it in to the overall measurement! If you need a stand, we sell them here.

Tree width

Bear in mind that the taller your tree, the wider it will be at the base. Nordman Firs and Norway Spruces in particular get quite big and bushy as they get taller, so make sure you've got space!

Height conversion

Height (feet)Height (cm)Height (m)

Remember, there's variance in that height - your tree will be at least as tall as in the above table, but likely a little taller.

Nordman Fir

(31 customer reviews)


Originating from Hungary the Nordman fir has grown in popularity since being introduced to the British market. The reason for its popularity is its excellent needle retention – it’s the number one non-drop Christmas tree – and its uniform shape. The needles on this tree are large dark green and soft to touch, therefore ideal for youngsters.

    Brilliant tree, brilliant service, I’ve sent hours looking for a good tree so I was a bit sceptical about buying online but it was perfect. Minimal needle drop which I need as I have cats and a dog, I was delighted to find very few needles on the floor. I am leaving this review now (Oct 19) as I’m looking to order our tress for this year. Well done, I cannot recommend you enough

    This is the first time we have used this site (stumbled upon browsing the net). We wanted to make getting our tree as easy as possible this year as work is so manic we just d not have the time to go out looking for one. I cannot believe how easy and stress-free it was using ‘Send Me A Christmas Tree’. I ordered Sunday 4th Dec and chose today (Wed 7th) as my delivery day. I phoned Sussex Trees to check on the status of delivery (just so I could be sure it was coming and to get my son to listen out) and the lady I spoke to reassured me it was. Well it arrived on the day, wrapped extremely well and is beautiful! This is the best Christmas tree we have had ever – Nordman Fir – and we all said “WOW” when we let it spring out form the net after placing it in it’s pot. We will definitely be using this site next year ad recommending it to friends and family. We cannot wait to decorate it at the weekend. A splendid site and so easy to deal with. We wish there were more companies like this! Thank you to ‘Send Me A Christmas Tree’ and Happy Christmas 🙂

    Just received 2 10ft trees today – absolutely beautiful!!

    Do not think if you select a delivery date that is the date your tree will be delivered, it is only an indication as I have just found out. Order cancelled, poor service IMO, if you offer a delivery date of choice to then say you will do your best to hit that date is unacceptable 🙁
