Europe's tallest living christmas tree
The Solar Branco Eco Estate Christmas Tree
Usher in the Christmas season with a visit to Eco Estate and admire one of the most Insta-worthy Christmas trees in the world. At a height of almost 30 metres (100 feet), it takes a whopping combination of 3km of lights (1.9 miles!) as well as an additional 1km (0.6 miles) of cabling and it is decorated with over 600 Christmas LED lights.
The Solar Branco Eco Estate Christmas Event, features The World’s Tallest Living Christmas Tree,* located on the island of São Miguel, Azores. It was first lit in 2019 as a way to thank the local community for welcoming the estate’s owners, Ali & Caroline, to the area.
In line with our sustainable ethos, this living tree, over 150 years old, delights visitors year after year. From 2023 the Eco Estate aims to use batteries powered by solar energy for the display. The tree is lit up each night in December from 18:00 – 21:00 with an opportunity for one lucky person to light the tree each evening at 18:00.
This event helps to raise funds for the Ocean Azores Foundation.
