Of course I prefer real trees, they are beautiful and I love the scent of a fresh tree.

But if *I* have to be the one to do the tree, fake wins. Karl is allergic to the residue on most Christmas trees, and I tend to be slow about getting the tree down after the
I have a fake one for the same reason

I feel sorry for all the real trees that get cut down and never bought What they should do is have a tree farm where people can go choose one and cut it down, and leave the ones they don't want.

I'm surprised at so many people who are allergic! That stinks!

We get a real one. My parents always get one from my grandparents "Tree farm" - just like all my aunts & uncles do. At Christmas all us cousins laugh at how we all have the same type Charlie-brown tree

My roommates and I just bought a real tree, and the smell is sooooooooooo delicious

Upside to real trees - the scent

Upside to fake trees - easy to obtain (get it from the garage/attic); easy to set up; no needles; no sap; no watering; no bugs

I had to let go of my midwestern roots and accept a fake tree here in California.

Funny story - two weeks ago, a friend asked my son "what is your favorite part about Christmas decorations." He replied, "the smell of the Christmas tree."

We've had a fake tree for a few years now.

perhaps you have some pets around the house who like to go into the attic and... eh hem... releave themselves by the fake tree, thus explaining it's odor?

The Spicewood candle from Circle E is a great candle to burn if you want to scent your home for Christmas.
Doesn't smell as great as a real tree, but it is still GREAT.

When I first moved here I bought "Noel" a small Norfolk pine tree in a pot. I'd bring him in each December, until he got too big and planted him in the yard. Then I started again with "Leon", same thing, he eventually got too big. I was walking down the street in early January, two years ago and saw a huge artifical tree for $25..BARGAIN!!( u know I bargains) and I realised, I don't want a yard full of gigantic norfolk island pine trees.
My youngest son enjoys decorating the tree, he starts school holidays today, so I'd better make some room for it....and do some Christmas shopping
There is a slash pine plantation near where I live and the dang things have spread for kilometres. This is the time of year you see guilty looking men with a carload of kids, parked on the side of a road, axe in hand , whistling and looking at the sky as you drive by...."who me? chopping down someone's tree?"
I say chop the mongrels down, they are a weed species here.
The native sheoak pines, make a lovely tree,if you get a young well-shaped one. They smell so nice.
I'd like to tell the story of my parents antique German musicbox/Christmas tree, I LOVE that thing...but I'd better

we always try to take a tree that won't make it on its own....you know, he would be choked out by bigger trees and die anyway...so we like to give him the glory of being a christmas tree
