    It should have read, real or fake trees.. oh well


    i grew up in a family that only used real pine trees for Christmas. it was a mess and the animals climbed the tree and worse.
    Now that I am an adult, i prefer fake.
    What type of tree do you prefer for the Christmas holiday?

      Real.  I like the smell of pine, so the real ones always do it for me.

      I think I read that some homeowner insurance companies won't allow real trees.  If you have a fire from a tree, you're screwed.

        I think there is a pine spray that people can use on their fake tress...that does sound pathetic....insurance companies are controlling how people live their lives now..

          I tested out that spray once, but it wasn't the quite the same.

    Real!!! I will miss not having a tree this year. If I was back in Canada for Christmas I would have a real tree for sure though.

    Real. But they can be messy and troublesome. Saw a pre-lit tree about 12 feet tall in Lowes. $800. Ridiculous.

    I can't have a real tree due to allergies. I actually won't have a tree at all this Christmas.

    I have a artificial tree that has seen better days.

    I heard today that those little trees, real ones, take about ten years to grow that size.  Then they are cut down.  It seems a shame somehow when they should be growing into magnificent conifers.

    Don't start me on the turkeys.

    Plastic is best. Not so much for turkey obviously.

    Due to allergies I can only use artificial trees also. I prefer them anyway. Clean-up is easy, lno pine needles showing up weeks later, no shopping for a tree every year and less worry of a house fire.

      That pretty much sums it all up for me.  I always felt bad about cutting down a live tree just to throw it out a month later anyway.
