  1. We were very unfortunately let down by real christmas trees in glasgow after having thought we had nabbed a good deal through groupon. The arranged delivery date came and went and no tree. Our wee daughter was so looking forward to decorating it on the weekend it was heartbreaking to see her devestated little face. But on the horizon sillhoutted against the sun was our hero….car wash christmas trees at 35 Dumbrae south…we called and were told that they could make a delivery the very next day at 40 pounds for an over 7 foot tree including delivery so close to Christmas I was m more than happy. Not long after they called me back to say that a friend of theirs could actually deliver that afternoon…friendly, quick, helpful and very understanding. I will go nowhere else for a tree from now on…I recommend this place whole-heartedly.

  2. Great article and very informative. However if you need a Xmas tree in central Edinburgh CrimboTrees.co.uk are located at the old Jenners Depository on Balgreen Road.
