I don’t get this: A Dorset council replaces its traditional town centre fir Christmas tree with a £14,000 fake one.

Borough of Poole said that the tree was safer, sturdier and cheaper in the long run, and that a Norwegian fir tree could topple over in strong winds.

I understand in the long run it could be cheaper, safer and more environmentally friendly but it looks silly.

Shoppers told the BBC that the 33ft (10m) tree looked more like a “huge traffic cone” or “a witch’s hat”.
