Festive Instalment in Derby

With over 7,000 twinkling lights is this huge 55ft tall Norwegian Spruce tree in Derby, from a Christmas Tree farm in Ockbrook, Derbyshire. 

With it being such a whopping tree, a normal base or stand wouldn’t do, so with the help of our structural engineering team, a 900mm square at the surface Christmas tree pit was designed.

We hope the city of Derby is enjoying the tree, standing tall and in place for weeks to come. The great thing about the pit is that once the festivities are all over, a cover will be placed on top with paving slabs, blending in seamlessly into the pavement - ready to be uncovered again for 2019 and many more years to come!
