Wakehurst Place a National Trust property in West Sussex believes it has the largest Christmas tree in the UK. Managed by Kew Gardens, Wakehurst Place decorate the giant tree every year and host a number of Christmas events for the public. Story as covered by the BBC.

Facelift Access Hire has been helping to put up the lights every year for more than 10 years now. The work starts at eight o'clock in the morning with the arrival of two Bronto's, a Bronto 46 and the Bronto 61xdt, the machines are carefully positioned to begin the days work, and with a team of ground staff from the property, the lights are taken up to the top of the tree to begin their attachment.

The day provided every kind of weather, sun, wind, rain, sometimes all at the same time,  fortunately, as the team are now so familiar with the operation they completed the work ahead of schedule, allowing plenty of time to take up the visiting journalists for better recording of the event and view.
