due to environmental concerns, some people prefer buying plastic christmas trees to preserve trees in the forest. But the irony of this is that their buying plastic which itself is another environmental problem. So which is better?

We have a real and a fake one. We can't cut the pine tree just for the sake of having a christmas tree.Luckily, my papa planted it outside our house so we just adorn it with christmas lights and some decors. OLA! it looks unique and so natural. To have a good ambiance of Christmas inside our house mama put up a fake or the plastic one. Still it is nice but Nothing Beats the Real one!

Getting a real plant ready for Christmas is a bit painstaking ,that's why people used to get plastic trees .Its nice to have plastic trees for the Christmas as it can be used further.And it must not be misused Merry christmas

My family stopped getting real trees years ago. I don't like fake trees. I'd much rather get a real tree just because the feeling I get is more special. I understand about the environment and stuff but I like to live life how I live it. I want a real tree so that's what I'm going to get.

Fake trees are way better. My mom used to put trees up when I was little and she always used a fake one. You can reuse a fake tree. There's too much hassle with real trees. Picking them out, cutting them down if you actually cut them down yourself. My mom used to say she didn't get real trees because she felt they had squirrels and stuff in them.

We also had a plastic tree. I no longer put it out coz assembling the fake tree is a hassle as well.

We have a fake tree. It can be used every year, and all we have to do is pack it up in a box and store it. This way I don't have to go out and find a new tree every year. Well, unless something were to happen to that tree for some reason.
