This was a real tree, not plastic landfill This led to MrH and I wondering that, if you have a tradition of real trees in NZ, do you have more a problem with them dying and needle dropping faster as they are felled at height of high sap and growing season rather than in their dormancy phase as in the UK.

We normally go to B&Q late on Christmas Eve as they have a tradition of giving away any left over trees but, as this is hopefully our last UK Christmas, we thought we'd lash out and do the whole festive season thing.

Sorry to say this but you are over thinking yet again. If you were serious, you would be here by now.

Not everyone progresses at the same pace. I need to retrain to start with and we have things happening in our lives that have been frustrating our move, I simply choose not to air these battles in public. Making snippy comments and judgements without knowing the full story isn't a nice thing to do so please don't do it, if you don't like my posts just ignore them.

OK ladies. Rolling pins back in the respective drawers please.

I've split the posts as

1 - Xmas tree needle drop could be a discussion of its own.

2 - Personality clash is not for the C thread

3 - Chance for Hazelnut to update on progress.

We may be interested to read how this is going giving the tick tock of the clock.

I can alter the thread title if needs be.

I know lots of people who have real trees. I think they last longer because they don't have to deal with central heating.

Pine trees naturally lose needles during the autumn and winter months, and lots of them, so I would imagine that cutting a fresh tree during the growing season would lead to fewer needles dropped, not more.

Thanks Bevs. There's not much progress that I can post on a public forum but there is progress and we still have hope

The pine needles dropping was a passing thought as MrH and I were chatting about, "If we can get over there". We do that quite a bit to keep our hopes up.

On the Christmas front I hope to have a big gatherng and family Christmas this year for the first time in 20yrs as I'm not the only one that may not be around for such things after this one.
