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.

Blue Spruce

(4 customer reviews)


UPDATE: We’re all out of Blue Spruces for this year! 🙁 If you want a non-drop tree that smells great, consider the Sussex Fir. If you want the tree that looks most like the Blue Spruce, go for a Scandi cousin in the Norway Spruce and enjoy the piney scent!

Although at it’s ‘bluest’ in the spring, the Blue Spruce will still often have a blue tinge at Christmas time. This tree also has a beautiful Christmassy scent. The needles are slightly longer than the Norway spruce, and it also has better needle retention. It’s important to note that the Blue Spruce has fairly sharp needles, so this may not be the best tree if you have young children. They will keep the cat off the tree, though!
