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.

Norway Spruce

(16 customer reviews)


This tree could be described as Britain’s original Christmas tree. The smell of Christmas that most of us grew up with, festive memories come flooding back whenever you get near one. If you’re a traditionalist this is as much a part of Christmas as turkey and the Queen’s Speech. Dark green with thin slightly prickly needles. The Norway Spruce is a great choice if you put your tree up in December, or at any time as an outdoor tree.

    Bought our Christmas tree from here for the last two or three years and will buy again this year. Trees are great but it would be nice if we could also buy mistletoe and holly at the same time, as we would if we could go out to buy a tree.

    Hi, Just a note to thank you for the lovely christmas tree that we had delivered on Friday 16th December. Everyone has admired it. The smell the beautiful shape and it has hardly dropped at all. It was such good value and delivered on the promised date. Why would anyone want the hassle of buying a tree and then struggling to get it home? We will definitely buy from you again. Well done and a Happy New Year.

    Really pleased with the tree you sent us, it was taller than the 8 foot , as we requested, and looked perfect in our tall drawing room. Much admired by everyone. My husband said he thought it was one of the nicest trees we had ever had and the best shape so a Happy New Year to you and many thanks.
