Each Christmas there is a ‘debate’ over real versus artificial Christmas trees.
The thought of cutting down a new tree each year is an environmental concern for some.
Given the current economic climate, artificial trees may be especially appealing for their value when compared with the recurrent, annual expense of a real Christmas tree. Their convenience is also appealing to consumers as they don’t need watering, don’t leave pine needles all over the floor and transportation from tree farm to home isn’t an issue.
However, some may feel that without the scent of fresh pine, it wouldn’t smell like Christmas! It’s personal preference
What are your views? Do you have an artificial tree which makes an annual appearance? Or do you prefer a real pine tree from a garden centre or farm shop? Or don’t you erect a Christmas tree at all?
