We're looking for a place to purchase a fresh Christmas tree in or near Tallinn now. We don't want to wait until Christmas day as I understand most Estonians do. Any ideas?

You can also buy a permit and go to the forest and cut down your own tree.

That would be such a cool experience for you also :)
Hi Lorianne!

You can order them with a delivery: http://joulukuused.ee/ < don't know these guys but someone suggested it in expats group once.

My favorite way is to check RMK and purchase a tree from them. You get a permit and then can go to the forest by yourself and pick your tree :)

Bigger shopping malls will have the trees and they usually start selling after the 1st advent. Fake ones are on sale already, like in Jysk or Bauhaus.

Usually the best deals for real trees can be found at hardware/construction stores such as Bauhaus, Bauhof and K Rauta etc. Not sure exactly when they start selling them.

You can get the Christmas trees in front of many supermarkets in Tallinn. I think they are not yet open, but usually they open in the beginning of December, so maybe end of this week.

Check the locations:

Besides you can also get them from some of the construction and garden stores
