We have gotten ourselves over very-first FAKE tree for this (and eventually future) season.
I am still not too sure or feeling 'okay' about it yet, and I'm curious who of you already has these kinds of trees and who still goes out to either buy a fresh cut tree, or cut one themself in one of those tree growing farms?
And opinions of each, of course.
By the way - when we get this thing up and decorated, I'll snap pix and post ASAP, Merry Mary!
(EDIT: Oops. Didn't know I was bumping this up from 2005! But the question still stands. Real or fake? Which one you like and use? And why?Also, the year in the topic title could be changed too, but I can't do that. It wasn't my thread to start. )
Here is a photo of our tree from last year. We haven't set it up for this year yet, but we should be getting around to that this weekend.
We switched to a fake tree about 6 years ago. Finding real trees was a big pain since 17ft trees can be hard to find, and then there is the issue of it sometimes being too tall for the room, and having to cut it to fit around furniture. Also January the needles would go everywhere!
The tree now is really two 10ft trees that have been welded together in the middle. It looks a little strange since it is really narrow but it doesn't take over the room now. Setting it up is a big task, it takes about 3 hours for just the tree, and then a day for the lights and all the decorations.
Someone did a good job searching to dig this 2005 thread up. I went ahead and changed the title, and plan on posting a picture of our 2007 tree here shortly. Just have to find a bit more time to decorate it before it makes it TPR debut.
