Homebase is selling a real 6ft Nordmann Fir Christmas tree for £20

REAL Christmas trees can cost a pretty penny – but Homebase is selling one for just £20.

Putting up the tree is a festive highlight for many but the price can be a stinger, and that’s before you’ve bought presents.

And with the cost of living so high, many households will be looking for ways to spend less over the coming months.

But Homebase has announced it’s selling six to seven feet Nordmann Fir Christmas trees for just £20 – and they’re available from today.

Forestry England’s website says the Nordmann tree is the most popular Christmas tree in Europe.

It also says they’re well-suited to households where people have allergies as the trees’ needles have a thick waxy coating.

You’ll have to be quick if you want one of Nordmann trees though – there’s limited stock of the firs. Plus, you can only get them in-store.

If you want to know what stocks are like at your nearest store without having to leave the house, you can use Homebase’s tool on its website.

It comes as the retailer launched a Black Friday sale on a number of other real and fake trees, Christmas lights and other festive-themed goods, and there’s up to 50% off.

The real trees will be in stores from Monday, November 28.

Some of the products can be bought online and in-store, so it’s worth checking yourself to see how you can pick them up.

Of course, it’s always worth shopping around for the best deals – as you might find something cheaper elsewhere.

If you’re shopping for groceries you can try websites like trolley.co.uk which compares tens of thousands of products across a number of high street supermarkets.

Or you can go on Latest Deals, which shares deals, vouchers, freebies and competitions.

You might want to support your local Christmas Tree selling business and buy from them, even if it’s a bit more expensive.

But we also looked online to see what else was on offer.

The Yorkshire Trading Co. was also selling a 6ft Real Nordmann Tree, but for £29.99 instead of £20.

It did also come with a £14.99 shipping fee if you want it delivered.

There was the option to pick it up in-store without the £14.99 extra cost though.

Meanwhile, B&Q was selling 150cm-180cm Nordmann trees for £38.

It was also selling a 120-150cm Nordmann for £26 if you’re not fussed about a taller tree.

You have to pay extra to get either tree delivered but there was also an option to click and collect for no extra free.

One useful feature on B&Q’s website is that it tells you what stock levels are like at your nearest store, which could save you a wasted trip.

Meanwhile, shoppers have been rushing to buy a huge advent calendar with £60 worth of products inside.
