1. Bedok Garden & Landscaping
This humble nursery brings in live trees for affordable prices, which could be the reason why it’s difficult to get in touch with them to book a tree. In fact, they are so popular that you probably won’t be entertained if you turn up without registering your interest with them online first. They stock fir trees from 4-12ft, and prices range from $95 for a 4-5ft Noble fir to $300 for a 8-9ft tree. Click here to see the detailed price list.

For those with a spacious garden or living room with a double-volume ceiling, go for something spectacular this year!
