    I like real trees. Especially the Douglas Fur ones. fake ones tend to have bidg ass gaps between each branch and they shed way more than real trees, at least the ones i've seen have. Not to mention real ones smell good.

    Real, unless its really a pain for you to set it up and maintain it. ie water & needle cleanup.

    Fake, less problem, no mess, no maintenance, just a pain in the but for an hour as you set it up. Plus there's no pretty "real" trees in TX

    Real for sure, I went up in the mountains with my permit and cut my tree. No better way to go in my opinion.

    Plus its only $10.

    real. hassle?? hardly. an hour to setup? if youre a noob. mess? wow, 4 minutes of vacuuming... real tough.

    real trees kick ass, the smell is the best thing ever. There is nothing like walking into your house and smelling the sweet sweet aroma of pine, fur, whatever.

    Real X-mas trees smell like a rusty asshole




    IMHO






    plus, you can buy scented candles if you *really* want that smell

    fake is cost saving... i think we paid 15 bucks for our 6 foot tree after the holidays last year. It is a full 6 foot douglass "plastic" tree. We just string lights around it for 2 bucks a strand and throws some decorations and bows on it. Then call it a charlie brown christmas :)

    Well, at my house - forced hot air heating + tree = holy water consumption Batman!
    Two years ago we had our last real tree, and it was a nightmare. We started watering it bi-weekly, but it started to ger very dry and frail. Okay. Once a day. Nope. We ended up watering it twice a day. The tree took 2 gallons of water a day - and I'm not kidding.

    Bought a decent fake tree, and short of the smell, once it's decorated - you'd never know the difference.
