Largest Indoor Christmas Tree in UK

Largest Indoor Christmas Tree in the UK is featured at the Ideal Home Show Christmas 2011

The largest real indoor Christmas tree in the UK at 15 meters high and over 7 meters wide, is set to be unveiled as the central feature of this year’s Ideal Home Show at Christmas at London’s Earls Court.

Towering over the show, the 30- year-old Norwegian Sitka Spruce, will be dressed in a selection of festive decorations and illuminated with stunning lighting provided by Philips.  Over 12 runs of 20 meters of cable will be used to illuminate the tree, which will be powered by a series of low wattage, energy efficient Living Colors Philips LED lights.

The 8-foot-tall balsam fir chosen as Grand Champion will be supplied by Elveden Estate, near Newcastle, and is the largest indoor Christmas fir Tree that you will see anywhere indoors in the UK this year. The giant tree will be transported to London’s Earls Court on a flatbed truck, and installed on a steel tree stand. 

After its life as the largest indoor Christmas tree, the wood will be cut and donated to young London based furniture designers and recycling enterprises to be used in furniture making. Any leftover product will be chipped and recycled at Elveden Estate.
