The Christmas festivities are well underway in Sheffield and many people will now be turning their attention to decorating their homes and buying their tree.

Although some people prefer to buy an artificial tree and not have to deal with the stress of cleaning up pine needles and remembering to keep it well-watered, others just can’t resist indulging in the real deal.

For many families in Sheffield, going to pick out an authentic Alpine tree and bringing it home (or getting it delivered) is one of the most fun and festive activities of the season.

And with founder of GardeningExpress.co.uk, Chris Bonnett, urging customers to get their Christmas trees early this year due to a rise in demand and potential shortages over the festive season, there is no better time to start looking.

However, it’s worth noting that real Christmas trees typically only tend to last for around four weeks, so if you want one that’s still fresh for the big day then it may be better to hold off for a few more weeks.

Here are some of the best places where you can pick up a real Christmas tree in Sheffield – for collection and delivery.
