How much do Christmas trees cost in your area?

And how tall was your tree? I know we WAY overpaid this year but I was tired of crappy, sapping trees so we went to a really nice tree farm. They served hot cocoa and cider and had this bustling tree business going. They had wagon rides out to the tree farm, it was really cute. We paid $85.00 and our tree was about 8 1/2 feet tall. That's about $30 more than we usually pay but I have to tell you, I'd go back next year. We had a much better experience than at one of those roadside stands and we got a beautiful tree.

I know Christmas trees are really up there in price. But we have a fake tree and I really like it. So Im out of the loop on knowing exactly how much they are. But I think $85 is way toooo much. I could see maybe $50 because thats a big tree. Oh well at least you enjoyed it. Right?

When we would get a fresh/real tree, it was always between $80 and $100, but we had cathedral ceilings in our home and the tree was always 10 ft or taller. We don't have any place as nice as you were describing. We would either go out and cut one ourselves from a tree farm or have a local tree farmer save us the biggest tree that he had that year. We moved from that house 3 yrs ago and decided to go the easy route. We bought a prelit 9 ft tree. It is very pretty~ easy up and easy down. No pineneedles sticking out of the carpet.

I bought an 8.5' artificial tree last year from greatoccasions.com for around $750.00...And they shipped it for free! That is not a small tree to ship for free but I am sure they didn't loose money on the deal. I couldn't get it from a store to my house with my car, that is for sure. I really like it and look forward to breaking it out in a few months.

The nice thing about artificial Christmas trees is that you only have to buy them once every 10 years or so, and you save on transport costs, etc. The cost usually ends up being less than getting a real tree each year, and there is a far larger selection of styles. www.santasquartersno.com must have over a hundred different types. If you really enjoy picking out a real tree each year though, obviously that would be your best bet.

I got a 8.5' Frasier artificial tree last year from www.greatoccasions.com for around $750.00, and they shipped it for free! That is not a small tree to ship for free, but I am sure they figured that into their profit. It was a really nice and I am looking forward to breaking it out in a few months.
