Thomas' Tricky Tree is the seventh episode of the tenth season.

Plot

Thomas has been sent to collect the Christmas tree from the wharf, but he can't find it and Duncan and Peter Sam tease him for not knowing what a Christmas tree looks like. Thomas steams away indignantly. He meets Sir Handel at some points, but ignores him, not noticing Sir Handel is pulling the tree. Thomas finds a flatbed carrying what he thinks is the Christmas tree sheltered by a tarpaulin, and pushes it away, but takes the wrong turning and pushes the flatbed into the canal, revealing its real load: pipes. Thomas looks for Sir Handel, who shows him where the tree is, and Thomas manages to deliver it in time.
