The average household Christmas tree takes about 10-15 years to grow.

  2. We buy a real tree and afterwards it goes outside to be habitat for the birds.
    Some people put in in ponds for the fish too.

  6. I guess they are grown on farms though just like other things we farm. However, we do use an artificial tree just because we're too lazy and don't like the falling needles.

  11. No wonder my wallet is empty now. Did you say 15 years? And then I'll kill it off in less than a month? That can't be good.

  15. We've had an artificial tree for 20 years. Amazingly, it still looks real good. I prefer real ones, but I really don't feel right about ripping a living thing from the ground and tossing it after only a few weeks. I'm no eco-nut, but that's the way I am. The good news is that, this year, it will remain in its bag (so we'll get at least one more year out of it). The turmoil around this place does not allow for a Christmas tree.

  16. We used to have a fake one but one of our cats would be knocking it all over the place, so no tree now. I guess we're true conservationists ;)
