Interesting fact for you, the tree in Trafalger square (London) comes as a gift from Norway every year for helping them during WW2.

Its a nice gesture and always looks lovely.

I have seen in once before, was beautiful.

My town Dover in the south east of the UK apparently used to have a tree donated from Norway but for some reason that stopped unfortunately and we now have to buy in our own which are nowhere near as big or beautiful (last years was leaning to one side and looked half dead/wilted lol).
