It stands at 20m tall and is decorated with around 900 LED lights. It was cut down in a forest in Oslo last month, having been chosen by the forestry division of Oslo City Council.
Richardson travelled to Oslo to accept the tree and it arrived in the UK last week after being transported 700 miles across the North Sea.
700 miles = ca. 1125 km.
