There’s nothing quite like the scent and look of a real Christmas tree.

Most suppliers are now ready for business and offering a range of festive pines.

If you have a warm house then look for a variety, such as the Nordman Fir, that won’t drop its needles as readily as others.

Be prepared to pay around £40 to £50 for a small 5ft tree and anything between £90 and £120 for a 10 footer.

Some real tree companies offer an online delivery service and trees that come complete with a set of co-ordinated decorations.

But if you want to choose one yourself then consult our guide, which lists several outlets in our corner of Yorkshire, many of which grow their own trees.

At this time of year the venues are open every day.

Buying early in December should guarantee freshness as many specialist companies harvest trees within a few days of putting them on sale.

Some sellers provides a disposal service after Christmas.
