The convenience of a plastic Christmas tree can be very alluring, but why not get into the festive spirit and opt for a real Christmas tree this year? The scent of natural pine will have you feeling more festive than ever, plus real trees are less flammable when fresh and are often a greener alternative than artificial trees. Christmas tree farms are scattered throughout Melbourne and Victoria, so your options for purchase or delivery are plentiful.

Once you've got your tree sorted why not wander through the city's festive lights? 'Tis the season, after all. 

Real Christmas trees

This company, which was started by two friends, sources trees from a farm that has been in the same family for more than 30 years. When there are so many other things to think about around Christmas time, it's important to ensure that getting a tree doesn't require an hours-long trek. With three convenient retail locations in Melbourne as well as free delivery available across Melbourne and Geelong, getting a tree couldn't be any easier.

This drive-in Christmas tree farm has been operating for the past three decades, and the staff is well-equipped to give you advice on stands, tree maintenance and care. The trees range from 1.5m to a whopping 3m, and you can also shop tree stands. The friendly staff will assist you with putting your tree in your boot, car roof or trailer, and delivery is possible depending on the suburb.
