bottle brush trees

Hello all,I am new here and am thrilled to find a forum all about Christmas. I myself am all about Christmas and plan on my decor year round.I am in search bottle brush trees. I have googled and found a few that are small, like for tiny villages or doll houses. When I was a kid my Mema had a set of maybe 5 and the talest was probably at least 25" tall. I regret every year when the holidays roll around that I don't have them. She always put together a beautiful display on her dining table using the bottle brush trees.So if anyone here knows of a source that I could be directed to that has something like I have descirbed please reply. Even if they are not a bottle brush I am seeking the look.kindest regards.

When I Think of bottle brush tree i think of the old artificial Christmas trees that had the long needles and felt like a toilet brush, The branch was put into a wooden pole. I would love to get a hold of one of them old trees! Anybody still have one of them?

The link from 2007 is now broken... and I am on the hunt for some bottle brush trees as well. Obviously eBay and etsy have some, but I'm wondering if a retailer has them - new - available for purchase.
