Thread: On the topic of Christmas Trees (Real or Fake ?

    Default On the topic of Christmas Trees (Real or Fake ?

    and why.

    I have always gotten a real tree, just because I grew up with a real tree each year and I like the smell of a real tree. However, last year the tree we got from lowes was infested with aphids (look like a tick) and my wife was mentioning maybe a fake tree. To me it just wouldnt be the same without a real tree though.

    I love the smell of a real xmas tree.

    I used to buy real xmas trees but I think I will go with a fake tree so that I can keep it from year to year and not have a tree die on my account.
    I don't worry about falling skies as much as I worry about low ceilings.

    Not to mention it's great for the fireplace in January, sounds like firecrackers going off.

    I used to love real christmas trees but the last real one we had we neglected to water for only 1 day and we had the aphids in the tens of thousands all over our living room. No thanks on that been fake ever since.

    Vacuuming pine needles off the carpet and getting sap everywhere is a pain, but you can't beat the look and smell of a real tree.

    Real for now.

    We're moving in a couple of years to our "forever house" and will get a fake one commensurate to the ceiling height for that house.

    I have a two story great room - so fake it is. Love the smell of a real tree, so usually compensate with a couple of those wreaths they make out of trimmings - still not the same.

    One of the last times I had a real tree, there was a praying mantis egg case in it. Of course being in the house simulated spring and accelerated the hatching process...that was fun!

    I have always gotten a real one, but I am about to breakdown and go with a fake one for the convenience. We get a 12 footer, which is hard to wrestle with, and I am have less and less patience with putting on the lights. It's not supposed to be such a chore. Bah Humbug!

    Real tree and ones that are not so damn perfect....I like natural with gaps and layers...we have large ornaments and they need to hang vertically
