Burcot Farm Christmas Trees.

A worker is surrounded by a staggering 850,000 Christmas trees as he starts the massive task of chopping them down in time for the festive season.
Plantation manager Robert Durrant put on his hard hat and ear protectors to keep himself safe as he set about the tree with a chainsaw.
A team of 12 field workers will spend the next week chopping down the trees, which measure between 3ft and 26ft tall.
Another dozen yard workers at Burcot Farm, near Winchester, Hants, will bundle them up and ship them to retailers around the country.
A typical 6ft tree from the farm will sell in the shops for 50 pounds.
