However, cutting down a tree and bringing a real one into the house is a bit problematic sometimes. First, it becomes especially expensive, as hauling in the perfect tree each and every year tends to cost a pretty penny. It also drops pine needles everywhere, and then you are forced to deal with it and dispose of the tree.
So what in the world are you suppose to do? Why not go with a realistic, artificial tree? You can make up for the lack of a pine smell by sliding a few pine car freshness inside of the tree, and best of all, you can reuse the tree every single year.
You just need to know what trees look realistic and are perfect for your home. There are plenty of realistic artificial Christmas trees out there, here are some of the very best.
