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.

Fraser Fir

(9 customer reviews)


Introduced to Britain relatively recently, the Fraser is growing in popularity year on year. The Fraser originates from Canada and North America where it is the biggest selling Christmas tree. The reason for its popularity is its excellent needle retention coupled with a beautiful orangey scent. The Fraser has a slimmer more wispy look to the Noble and Nordman, particularly in the smaller sizes – if you’re after the perfect symmetry, this might not be the tree for you, but if you love the smell and want a fresh tree that’ll keep it’s soft needles well, it’s a great choice.

    Bought our Fraser Fir from Send me a Christmas Tree last year after being let down by another company. I was a bit worried about the delivery distance but it was delivered on the date requested. We were delighted with the 6 foot tree and will be buying agin this year.

    Best tree I have ordered ! I have ordered the Same this year but bigger. The needles didn’t drop and it kept its shape through the whole of Christmas.

    This is my third year buying a tree from here. Last year we had the Fraser Fir (7foot) and it was absolutelly perfect, retained almost all needles for seven weeks and held all decorations without losing the shape. It also has a beautiful scent and proportions. The service is excellent.

    Perfect tree! I was slightly apprehensive to buy unseen online but i was absolutely delighted to receive this perfect 8ft Fraser Fir to my door. On a year where they are in short supply you have saved our Xmas tradition. Thank you 🙂

    Bought one of these last year (2016) fabulous tree.. symmetrical and hardly any needle drop… wonderful smell too

  6. Ann Halliday (verified owner)

    Due to significant needle drop it is many years since I’ve had a real tree. This tree did not disappoint, it has been up and decorated for nearly 3 weeks and has hardly shed a needle. Beautiful symmetrical shape, lovely fragrance, very well packaged for transit, arrived exactly as planned. Well done!!
    I will be buying another one in 2017.

    I ordered a tree from you last year (first time I bought an unseen tree) and it really was the perfect tree, thank you.

  9. Anne, Maidstone

    Thank you for my beautiful, symmetrical tree which arrived as promised and in perfect condition. I couldn’t be any happier and the whole process was completely stress-free. My children are decorating it as we speak. Many thanks to all involved.
