Take one Christmas Tree, (generally at least a foot too high for the height of the room it’s being displayed in), a bucket, some rocks, one unwilling male and one over-eager female with perfectionist tendencies and the result is rarely a recipe for festive fun.

At ten4 design and manufacture we’re all about engineering smart solutions so we’ve created the Ultimate Christmas Tree.

The Ultimate Christmas Tree is:
• cheaper than divorce
• lightweight and easy to assemble
• low maintenance - doesn’t need water
• critter-free and it won’t drop needles
• non-allergenic and fragrance free
• so good looking it doesn’t even need decorating
• also suitable for outdoor display & will last for years

Most importantly, this tree potentially has life saving properties as we’re auctioning it to help towards the cost of medical treatment for 19 year old Caitlin Hawthorn of Whangarei. Caitlin has an extremely rare form of cancer that cannot be treated in New Zealand and her family need to raise around $60,000 to cover surgery and travel costs.

We don’t personally know Caitlin but we were touched by her story and your winning bid could make the ultimate Christmas gift for this family in need. If you’d like to know more about how you can help Caitlin go to

Tree Specs:
• Construction - Perspex rings & aluminium poles
• Tree stands approx 1.85m tall not including the star at the top
• Base diameter 1.2m
• Weight approx 15kg

The tree can be seen on display at the Strand Arcade in the Cameron Street Mall in Whangarei from Monday 19th – Sun 25th November and at BNZ in Bank Street Whangarei from Monday 26th November – Sunday December 2nd.

Or if you're not in the market for a tree but you'd like to help, you can make a donation at the ASB – Caitlin’s Med Fund 12-3099-0027329-00
