My Mum really likes real trees but despite this we always have an artificial tree, I don't mind though because I love any kind of Christmas tree.

Well...the fake ones are hypoallergenic and you don't have to dispose of it after the holidays. But you can't beat the fresh pine smell!
I suppose I could go either way...but we usually have a fake one. I even have my own little tree that I display in my bed room.

Whenever I go to a store where they have a Christmas tree displayed as you walk in...I always gotta see if it's real or fake. I'm noisy like that. I do that with plants at the Doctor's office too. :lol:

Real tree, real tree!! Nothing beats the scent of a real Christmas tree. Although for practical purposes, artificial trees can be very handy...less mess.

I always go with artificial trees, I think they look just as good as real ones, and at least you don't have to clean up after Christmas is over!

They should make artificial trees that look more like the real thing. I mean, the way an artificial one is outlined, it looks too perfect. In nature the tree branches aren't that even, they should make an artificial one that looks more asymetrical and throw in some fresh pine scent and fake bark at the base.

There are a few, really pricey, artificials out there that are dead-ringers for real.
I worked at a company that bought one and it took forever to set up (it was a 9-footer) but, except for the lack of scent, it was a stunning fake.

Oddly enough this is a great subject For the last forty years we have had a real tree and every year I grumbled when we had to go out in the cold and purchase it or cut it down. The I would grumble when we had to drag it out and clean up the needles for the next five months. But I sure loved the look and the smell. For the last five years we have used and artificial tree and I must say I'm loving it. Artificial trees have come a long way in the last ten years and this one even has a plug in for the pine smell with no needles to clean up! Have to say I'm loving it. Now for a quick plug If any one is looking for Santa letters to send to the kids please visit my website http://www.santaletterexpress.info

I've always had an artificial tree and that has been fine with me. I don't know too many people who have a real tree actually. I think one Christmas I'll have to give a real one a try, I'm especially eager to sample the fresh smell many of you have spoke about.

By artificial, you mean a fake tree, right?

I prefer the fake tree..kinda like the Upside Down Christmas Tree I posted about here. THAT is one tree you DON'T have to water.

It does not really matter to me whether the tree is real or not. I enjoy decorating christmas tree and that is more important than the type of the tree I am decorating. Practically speaking though, artificial christmas tree are more practical since you can use it the year after and even beyond.
