Testing my understanding of adjectives and neuter definitive nouns. Is it correct to translate "the incredible tree" as "det utrolige treet" (or perhaps more seasonally, "det utrolige juletreet"? Google translate has it as "Den utrolige treet", which I don't think is correct. Can someone confirm my understanding?

I agree with your suggested translation.

Also see the example in the course notes for the lesson Adjectives - paragraph The Definite Form - case Neuter for a more authoritative confirmation: this is "det store bordet - the big table".
