I researched Christmas trees in the UK. Every year they put up a spruce from Norway on Trafalgar Square. It is a ‘Thank You’ gift for the support of the UK in WW2. The requirements for a perfect tree are:
- symmetric form
- branches all around the tree
- they cut down trees around the tree that will be chosen one day so it has enough light to grow big
- fertilise the tree to get the right colour of branches
