General Real or artificial tree?

Recommended Posts

For me I love real Christmas trees! I love the smell and all that stuff... only thing I don’t like is that I have to remember to water it everyday.

 

so Real or Fake?

We used to have real and it dropped insane amount of trash to the floor so now we have fake

I pretty much never put up a Christmas tree, though technically, my front yard is full of them. They just need lights. :P

I do Christmas at my grandparents' cabin and they prefer an artificial tree due to allergies. I like real trees. They smell good!

I've always had a real tree for as long as I can remember.

I love authenticity as well, but fake trees make less of a mess and come in a more variety of colors. And I think fake would be better so that real ones wouldn't be severed from the earth.

Fake, cheap and reusable.

Everyone in my family uses an artificial tree, they are not messy, less expensive, and you can reuse them next year. My family's had their tree for many years now, it's dusty and old but it still looks great.

I prefer a real tree if I happen to live in a place where they're readily available. When I lived in the northwest they were easy to get and I could cut my own, but in the southwest I have to pick from trees at a tree lot, most of which were cut down two weeks before Thanksgiving, and they can be a bit beat up and dry. They're still nice, but I like them fresh from the ground. They make some realy nice fake ones now but they don't have the smell unless you get artificial scent, but that often smells a bit perfume-like to me and not very authentic.

My family would always get a small artificial tree after the cats wouldn't stop knocking our real one over. If I ever decide to get a tree for the holidays, I'm getting an artificial one simply because it's much easier to tend to.

I have a real Christmas tree, but it's huge and outdoors.

We own an artificial tree but I think I would want a real one...minus the pine that gets all over the floor.

My family has been using artificial Christmas trees for as long as I can remember.

when i was younger my family use to get a real one but as an adult i just get the artificial ones, they are easier to put up and take down and they save money instead of spending so much on an actual tree or doing the work involved with transporting said tree.

I don't have a tree currently but I would like to get one of those pre-lit artificial trees because I was raised with an artificial tree instead since both my mom and myself have allergies of a varying degree(my allergies aren't as bad as hers).  I'm kinda hesitant though since I'm worried about my cat chewing it and I KNOW she will  Maybe I should just buy one of those cardboard trees that goes on tables and have that instead? :mlp_huh:

Artificial trees, definitely. They don't shed pine needles all over the floor, are more portable, and don't track bugs into the house.

Artificial. I don't agree with cutting down so many trees and you have to clean up all those needles. Plus decorating a once live tree in lights and tinsel is a spit in the face of the pagan beliefs that spawned it.

A real one does best in an outdoor setting, IMO.

Yeah I like the idea of having a real Christmas tree outside, where you don’t have to worry about the mess nearly as much. And you still get the nice pine smell :3

My mother has a very small artificial tree that she puts on the table, but that’s really it. We used to have a bigger one when I was a kid.
