The Surbiton Christmas tree was partly sponsored by retailer Waitrose.
We're pleased to donate to the town's Christmas lights fund once again this year.
We have passed on the petitioner's comments to the council and Surbiton Business Community who look after the decorations.
Speaking to ITV News, residents in Surbiton described this year's Christmas tree as "dismal", adding it needed "jazzing up".
Residents in Surbiton have started a campaign to remove a Christmas tree on a roundabout outside the train station, because they say it looks ugly.
Residents say the tree is a bit of let down compared to previous years, and it does not fit in with the rest of Surbiton's decorations. The tree was sponsored by a major supermarket and now a petition has been set up asking the retailer to replace it...
"... to bring it more inline with the keeping of Surbiton."

With Christmas just a few weeks away, London is starting to look very festive indeed. Leading the way is Trafalgar Square, which today took delivery of its very own Christmas tree.
It gives the rest of London a lot to live up to, and there are already trees of all shapes and sizes around the capital. Below is Surbiton's effort. It has been placed on a busy roundabout - with the arrows still lit up.
Police are appealing for assistance in tracing a 14-year-old girl who has been missing from her home in Surbiton since Friday 7 December.
Lauren Servey is approximately 5ft 6ins tall with short brown hair, green eyes and of slim build.
She was last seen wearing black material jacket, black and white stripey leggings, with a black handbag and white Nike trainers.
It is believed she may be in the Clapham, Putney, Battersea or Wandsworth areas.
Anyone who has seen Lauren should call Kingston Police on 101 or Missing People on 0500 700 700.
Duncan Clark, Director of Learning and Children’s Services said:
“I am sure parents and carers whose children attend Tolworth Infants and Nursery School will be assured by the Inquest’s findings that the adventure playground provided a safe and secure environment for the children.
"The Inquest heard that the children were properly supervised and that school staff reacted appropriately in the immediate aftermath of the incident.
“Samuel is still very much in the thoughts of everyone connected to the school.”
