As the ridicule against the tree piled up on social media, a Trafalgar Square Tree account on Twitter fired off ripostes.

Like all other Christmas trees that end in Trafalgar Square, this spruce was grown in Ostmarka, a wooded area east of Oslo, where people talk and hug trees to encourage growth, the council said.

The lights on the tree will officially be lit on Thursday night, complete with yuletide carols, poems, and a festive market.

The mature properly-organized, a reward to the British of us from Norway as a thank you for our strengthen all over the Second World War, has attracted moderately less joy - and all too phenomenal derision.

And since there then arrived a free tree from the Norwegian forests to London every year.

The Trafalgar Square Christmas tree is a almost 70-foot Norwegian Spruce that's been an annual from the city of Oslo since 1947 as a token of Norwegian gratitude to the people of London for their assistance during World War Two. It happened during a special ceremony where the mayors of Oslo and Westminster participated. "It's dead", he said, adding, "It's a present from Norway, and it's dead". The tree, which was donated in 1947, was only 14,6 metres high.

- This is how a 90-year-old and 25 meters high tree to look out in the open, says Wood for the BBC.

- It is important to think about the symbolism rather than counting how many branches it has.
