Christmas shopping is an extremely stressful time, especially if you have taken it upon yourself to turn your home into the set of one of Martha Stewart’s Christmas books. While you can’t escape the hordes of Christmas shoppers fighting you for the last of the decorations on the clearance shelves, you can certainly take a break from the fake and get yourself some freshly scented pine for an OG Xmas.
Although pine trees aren’t exactly native to ‘Straya, we’ve found a few places around Perth where you can go get yourself a nice ol’ tree and impress those nosy neighbours who secretly judge you for not putting in the extra effort (Yes Susan, we’re looking at you).
Here’s where to buy a real Christmas tree in Perth.
Wilbury’s Traditional Christmas Trees
8598-8328, State Route 52, Henley Brook
Open seven days a week, you can go pick up a traditional Christmas tree from their beautiful range of pine trees, and it’s conveniently located just 30 minutes from the CBD. Click here for more details.
Muriale's Christmas Tree Farm
633 Great Northern Highway, Herne Hill
Armed with a measuring stick and a saw, you can wander through this pine forest in Herne Hill to find your tree. Once you’ve got the ideal tree, you can use the measuring stick to check the height as well as the price of tree. If you’re stressing out about the logistics, be sure to get along some help. Preferably someone who’s good at math.
Christmas Trees of Wanneroo
99 Rousset Rd, Mariginiup
Just five minutes away from the Wanneroo Shopping Centre, this farm has over 3000 pine trees to choose from. While it usually tends to get crowded around Christmas, you can always call them earlier and reserve your tree and pick it up at a later date. Click here for more details.
