O Xmas Tree, O Xmas Tree
Pretty potted trees


Christmas and trees go hand in hand and have a long and rich history. The first documented record of a tree used to celebrate Christmas and New Year was in Tallin, Estonia in 1441. Have you always dreamed of enjoying the sweet smell of fresh pine needles and the beauty of decorating your home or workplace with an authentic, cut or living Christmas tree during the festive season? This might be the year to buy a real, cut or living Christmas tree.

Come in this way


Price list


The "Real Christmas Trees" group has been operating since 1990 and was the very first Christmas tree business in Brisbane. At the start of the Christmas season, a pop up shop in Ashgrove operates to sell these leafy beauties. The trees are imported from Victoria, with the cooler climate ensuring that the plants are full and healthy. The trees are the Monterey Pines variety which pleasingly do no shed needles and look their best for 3 weeks. Cut trees range in height from extra small (reaching 1.2-1.5 metres) for $70.00 through to the extra large at 2.4-2.7 meters and costing $195.00.

Picea potted trees are also available in classic Christmas red pots (which are ideal for table tops, decks and terraces) and range from $19.50 for an extra small plant through to $99.00 for a large potted tree. And of course, every tree needs some sparkle and trimmings, so decorations, garlands and bon bons are also on hand to give it some bling.

Trees can be collected at the pop up shop at Ashgrove or can be delivered to your home. Delivery costs start from $59.00. A tree removal service is also available for Brisbane residents after Christmas is over.

Visit the pop up shop in Ashgrove


The pop up shop opens from Saturday 10th November 2016 or purchases can be made online here . If you visit the shop, keep an eye out for Angus the grey shop cat who may come and say hello.

That's a real novelty, Gillian - I wonder how many people still have 'real' Christmas trees - they are beautiful though and happy to read that they don't shed their needles - that's important!
