At 8m tall and made of more than 300,000 bricks, it is not the sort of Christmas tree Santa Claus is likely to miss.
Model maker Katrina James took great care as she leaned out from a cherry-picker and gently slotted into place the bright yellow star that adorns the top of the tree at Legoland in Windsor this week.
The enormous Lego tree took six modelling experts four weeks to construct.
The pine tree was built in sections that were then manoeuvred into place, and the tree has been festooned with hundreds of twinkling lights.
The star itself took Ms James six days to create, requiring meticulous design to ensure it was precise and had perfect proportions.
Despite looking rather delicate, the tree has been built to withstand the elements.
The Lego model makers are amazing at making sure everything is weather-proof.
They have special glue and other things to make it weather-proof. The tree will have an internal structure, an architecture of metal, so it is not just classic Lego but is built around a frame.
Staff at Legoland in Windsor have got a busy few days ahead of them as they take on the park's annual spring clean. More than 80 million bricks need to be dusted and polished and model makers will be fixing any figures that need repairing.

The youngest member of the royal family is celebrating his birthday by being recreated in lego pieces at Windsor.
Lego are hosting a birthday party with a difference for the youngest member of the royal family, Prince George.
Royal guests included Prince George himself – newly created to mark his birthday as a toddler made from 15 individual lego bricks – his parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and both sets of grandparents – the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall, and Michael and Carole Middleton.
His great-grandparents were also there, Her Majesty the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh, as well as his uncle Prince Harry and Aunt Pippa Middleton.
We have a lot of fun with our tiny LEGO Royals – we recently gave our Royal ladies a Royal Ascot makeover with bespoke hats designed exclusively for us by the Queen’s Milliner, and our announcement of Prince George's birth last year was a real crowd pleaser. We hope people will be just as delighted with our special LEGOLAND birthday party."
Seven of the Royal Family's figurines at Legoland have had a mini makeover in time for the Royal Ascot.
Royal hat-maker Rachel Trevor-Morgan has made intricate and specially designed hats and has described it as her "most unusual commission yet".
As well as designing the tiny hats for lego models of the Queen, the Duchess of Cornwall and the Duchess of Cambridge, she also made ones for the Duchess' mother, Carole Middleton, Princess Eugenie and Beatrice as well as Zara Tindall.
The models and their hats will be on show at Legoland in Windsor until Royal Ascot finishes on June 21st.
The Queen's hat maker has designed miniature headwear for the royal family models at Legoland in Windsor to celebrate Royal Ascot.
Rachel Trevor-Morgan's designs will be on display from today until the end of the equestrian festival on the 21st June.
Her Majesty The Queen will wear a characteristically classic and colourful straw hat in bright yellow with hand painted silk flowers measuring just a few millimetres.
The Duchess of Cornwall's dove grey side sweeping picture hat is decorated with minute feathers swirling to form an elegant circular design, whilst the Duchess of Cambridge wears an understated yet stunning Royal Blue straw slice hat with two miniature quill feathers.
A wildlife garden with a difference has opened in Windsor today, made from hundreds of LEGO bricks. The unique habitat is being built to mark the first anniversary of the RSPB's Giving Nature a Home campaign and includes a bird bath, frog house and a 'hogitat' - that's a home for hedgehogs!
