Christmas is under a month away now and many people in Bournemouth might be thinking of sorting out a Christmas tree for the season if they haven't done so already.

Getting one erected and decorated in your home can brighten the mood leading up to the big day.

You could pull the same old artificial tree from your attic, but there is something special about buying a real tree- especially when you can buy it from a local business in Bournemouth.

There are a variety of shapes, sizes and types of Christmas trees to choose from to suit all of your personal preferences.
