    How much do you typically pay for a real Christmas tree?

    Assuming you buy a tree that is NOT plastic, how much do you pay for your live or cut Christmas tree? What part of the country/world are you in?

    In my area you can generally get a live 7-8ft Douglas fir tree for around $29-$40 at Home Depot. Some Target stores have good deals as well. Christmas tree lots tend to be more expensive.
    I live in the NW suburbs of Chicago.
    Note: If you have them trim the base you'll want to put it in water within an hour or so. They'll also cut off any low hanging branches that might interfere with your tree stand and tree skirt. Best wishes!

    I stopped buying live Christmas trees years ago. The last time I bought one, it developed a rancid smell even though I changed out the water as I was supposed to. My neighbor had the same problem that year. Maybe it's because trees that are not ingenious to Florida are shipped in. Maybe it was just a bad crop. And now that I've become more environmentally conscious, I'd rather not have a tree that lost it's place in the ecosystem to satisfy a pagan tradition. Now that my son is a grown up, I have a little table-top tree made out of ribbons that we display.

    When he moves out, I'll give him all the ornaments we've gathered over the years, including the teeny tiny stocking my mom put on my first Christmas tree 58 years ago.

      Most likely the tree came from a tree farm and didn't lose it's place in the ecosystem. If there had been no market for the tree it would have never been planted.
      The same is true of roses/flowers/plants given as gifts for holidays & events.

    I live in the Southwest. When I buy a live tree, I get it from Delancey Street, which is an organization that helps reform ex-prisoners. They only sell Noble firs, and they are gorgeous! The cost is about $70.00. A little pricey, but the cause is good. They also cut the stem for you fresh and strap the tree to your car.

    Although it varies, the price ranges from approximately $40 to &50 for an 8 foot tree down here in Central Florida...
