Tree Height Guide
VarianceObviously trees don't grow to perfect round heights :) We measure from the base of the tree (the point at which we cut the trunk) to around halfway up the "leader". 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. Some trees have longer leaders than others, so bear in mind that your tree could be a bit bigger than expected (sometimes up to a foot). You can always cut a bit off the top of the leader, though.
StandIf 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 widthBear 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!

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!
