    I’ll be putting up the imaginary tree this year. My cat seems to like climbing and finding a good perching spot to sit in when I put one up

    Fake for me, but real does smell good.

    fake pre-lit for me.
    I always had real trees until I lived in an apartment in WDM where they wouldn't let you have real ones. After that, I just sort of got used to fake ones, and I don't mind them so much now.

    Fake, definitely. Real is way to much hassle for no real benefits.

    Re: Real or fake?

    I think we are going to have our first tree ever this year. The kids are finally big enough that they will not tear it down 10 seconds after it goes up.

    But I do not mind fake, they are perfectly formed and the bristles are nice and perky, plus a lot of the time they are larger.

    We have a fake tree, but we don't have room to put it up.

    Fake tree - pay the money up front and it lasts for years.

    Re: Real or fake?

    Hmmm while I prefer real ones (I love the scent), I can't afford a real one, and I already have a fake one from my apartment in Ames.... so putting that back up. Can't seem to find the lights though... so have to get some more

    Any guesses as to what the theme of my tree has been the last few years?

    I forgot to ask:
    How much does a real tree cost?

    Re: Real or fake?

    I'm putting up a fake one in my apartment, and my parents are putting up a 10-12' real one.

    I prefer a real one but in my apartment it's just easier to have the fake one.

    fake. No mess and not sloppy after they get old... we're still talking about trees right?
