What are the best types of tress to use as Christmas trees?
Which are the best with regards to looks, hanging ornaments, losing less needles etc?
Artificial ones. I'm not saying that just to be silly. I like the fake one I have because it doesn't drop needles or dry out to become a fire hazard. Also, you can't bend the branches of a real tree and fill in the gaps, but you can with an artificial one. When I was a kid, we always had a blue spruce and it seemed to retain needles well and the branches were far enough apart we could put tons of decorations on it.
Spruce because they have short needles. I love pine trees but the long needles dry out faster and are more of a fire hazard. If you want your tree to stay green long use a bigger container of water for the base and add brown sugar. I love the smell of a real tree at Christmas don't you?
I think it depends on the look you want. Artificial trees look fuller and offer greater support for those heavier ornaments. Fresh trees have a wonderful smell to them, but can be messy if not maintained. Both trees offer fire hazard opportunities, but placement is also essential. This year we are using a fresh tree that we cut down this last Saturday in the mountains. It smells wonderful and brings the Christmas spirit out more, in my opinion.
