    Hey, did anyone buy one of these trees? Any idea how tall they are, or if you can get them wrapped up there? I want to pick one up, but am not sure if I can fit it (or on) the car!

    We’ve been buying those trees for the past few years and bought one again this year. They come in all shapes and sizes and are all priced the same. They come wrapped up so you won’t be able to fully see how they look however we’ve been happy with every single tree we’ve got from Ikea. ( you can tell if the tree is bushy or tall and thin). My husband fit our tree in the back of our Ford Focus hatchback.

    Yes! I have been buying my trees there for the last 7 years or so and they are always great. Yes, you can tell bushy from scrawny if you look at how big the bulge is in the centre area.

    Enjoy!

    My wife and I have been buying IKEA Christmas Trees for the last ten years. We’ve never picked a bad or crooked tree. In the early days they were sold for $10.00, but even at twice that price, it is still a great bargain. Choose a tree based on it’s height and weight (bushiness), and get to the store early. Each location receives so many trees and when they’re gone, they’re gone!

    Merry Christmas!

    Bought an Ikea Christmas tree 6 days ago. The pos is now sitting on my porch waiting for the dump. I don’t know when this thing was harvested but it was dry as bones and shedding too much to be worthwhile. You can buy a fresh tree for under 20 bucks from the Scouts, I’ve learned my lesson…

    Just put up my ikea tree bought today. It’s dropping needles like crazy and is dry as a bone. It’s a big fire hazard. What a rip off. Im taking it back tomorrow and demanding my money back.

    Wish I could withdraw my comment. I gave the tree a real good shake and swept up all the needles and it might be ok after all. Sorry I spoke in haste. Please remove the comment if possible.

    you know guys and gals, a little tip for ya…..
    put the tree in a bucket of water while it’s waiting to be set up. Pour some Rose food in there, or sugar. The tree will last and not shed!

    The trick is to cut off half an inch out of the bottom part of the tree and put it in water right away. this is because the tree after cut creates a barrier which doesnt allow the tree to consumes the water needed.

    Ikea trees are fron out east and are harvested way to early, sure it’s a great deal but you get what you pay for. Instead of supporting an international company you should be supporting the hard workers of Ontario tree.

    I’ve been buying my trees at Ikea for the last few years and have always been very pleased with them. Don’t add sugar to the water, it grows bacteria. Buy a product called Tree Fresh at the garden center or Home Depot or Canadian Tire. You just add a capful to a litre of water. you can use it in fresh floral bouquets too through the year.

    I bought my tree in Burlington and it was a big disappointment. My son sawed through the trunk like butter and as soon as we opened the covering on the trees it was needles everywhere. We put it in the house in the holder and thought perhaps a day in the water and things will be better….nope. Not a drop went in the tree and the needles dropped if you brushed the tree. DANGEROUS. Put it outside and cut a tree locally. No more Ikea trees for us.

    Will buy one this year again and promptly take the shears to it to decorate the front of the house. If needles fall off, they are outdoors! I can make 4 bundles for $20 bucks and that’s good value!

    The trick is to check how fresh it is before you buy it – bend the branch and if it returns easily to it’s form, it is fresh. If it breaks, it is old and don’t bother.
    I’ve got mine from there for the last 3 years and I was happy. Always cut few inches and then put it water. Mine lasted from Dec 11 till Jan 7 and it still looked great!
    It is a good deal, the only disadvatange, you cannot see it open before you buy it…

    Hello Everyone,
    this is my first year buying a real christmas tree and I’m very excited and also nervous that I don’t kill it prematurely. It is Nov 30th today, is it too early to buy the tree? Should I wait until next week? I’d love some advice as I’d like the tree to last until New years! Also how do I cut off the bottom stump to lengthen his life without a saw?

    You need to buy a saw (quite cheap at Canadian Tire)- as soon as you cut it, put it in water. There is a green liquid for trees (still canadian Tire) mix it and it will help you tree.
    Not too early to buy, but do the check that I’ve described above.
    And don’t cut unless you put in water!

    We got one from the North York location but I must’ve picked a dud. Even though I cut about 4 inches off the bottom after I got, it’s stopped drinking for days and is drying out fast! The top of the tree is already browning and shedding and it’s only been a week! Don’t think there will be many needles left by Dec 25th. Very disappointing.

    Bought an ikea tree from ikea, the trunk was as soft as ever. That it wont even stand up in the tree stand!! It is also so dry that needles fall off it when the heat is blowing threw the house.

    Never again will I get an Ikea tree. Ruined my christmas.

    Thanks for the advice Ditto, I followed it however many of the needles are falling on a daily basis. I’m quite sad as I wonder if it will last until Xmas. Any ideas on how STOP the needles from falling? I don’t want a bald dry tree. BTW, I make sure the tree has sufficient water on a daily basis. Please help!!!

    Well, dud for me too! I followed my own rules and the needles fall like crazy. I am so mad, I almost want to put up my plastic one…
    It doesn’t even smell in the house like a fresh tree!!!
    Sucks big time!
