Artificial Christmas Tree

Artificial Christmas Tree, With black Friday being the unofficial start of the Christmas season, for many, that means it’s time to go get that Christmas tree. Some swear by that Fraser Fir or White Pine, maybe one they even cut themselves. But others say no way; they stick to the artificial variety. Well we found out just what the argument is really about in the real versus fake Christmas tree debate.

From white pine, to pretty and plastic, Christmas trees come in all different shapes, sizes and synthetics. But which is better? Farm fresh or assemble upon delivery? “I definitely would suggest an artificial tree,” said Sarah Talbard who works at The Gingerbread House in Danville. “It’s an investment. I’ve had mine for nine years and it still looks wonderful,” said Jean Daniels.

An investment is right. On average, a fake tree costs ten times what a fresh one does, but can last nearly two decades longer. “You go pay for a real tree, fifty, sixty dollars and you go burn it up, or mulch it up. I pack mine away and pull it out next year,” said Daniels.

And what about that clean up? “You don’t have to worry about watering a tree, needles falling. It looks like you’ve actually gone out to the forest and cut down your tree,” said Talbard.
