It looks like Canberra’s Christmas Tree could be in for a makeover!

Many have described the 20m high tree in the city as an “ugly rocket ship” in the day time.

ACT Chief Minister Andrew Barr said this morning, that’s largely because it was used for last year’s Guinness World Record for the most lights on an artificial Christmas tree.

“It’s great at night when all the LED lights are on, but what you want is a lot more big red balls,” he said.

As it turns out, the Chief Minister has heard the tree described as an "ugly rocket ship" lots of times before!

So next year, we might see more tinsel, baubles and actual tree!
