Live Christmas tree or fake Christmas tree; which is better?


Christmas tree#2 12-25-11Here’s some information I’d like to share about the live Christmas tree vs. the fake Christmas tree debate.

We have over 20 large trees on our property already (many of which we planted, including two Christmas pines). Now that we don’t have any more room for trees, we contacted the City of Pasadena about replanting a live Christmas tree anywhere in the city. They kindly refused saying that they were concentrating on “planting only indigenous trees” so that the water consumed by the new trees would be less than non-indigenous trees (like the huge pines). We called conservation groups, the Boy Scouts and the Girl Scouts, all had run into the same restrictions. So, if we do get a live tree, where will we plant it after Christmas?

  1. I think a lot depends on circumstances. Because I repurpose my tree, i.e., decorating it for various holidays, an artificial tree works for me. Also for people who have a variety of allergies or compromised immune systems artificial trees work best.
