    We always recycled ours. Let dry, burn off needles, trim a few branches, weight down with concrete blocks and sink near dropoffs in nearby lakes...WORKS GREAT!

    Real.

    Of course it's easy to say real, when you live in the state that dominates Christmas tree production. I really like the aroma and I had a particularly odoriferous tree this year. It still smelled good as my son dragged it out the door.
    Same here, grew up with a fake tree, as soon as I got married we started buying real trees. So far, that's 19 real trees in a row, have no interest in changing.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Fake. We used to do real but we have gas heat which means I end up with needles everywhere. Plus, we do not put it up until a few days before Christmas which makes it harder to find a real one. The Christmas tree farm we used to go to is closed by the time we get around to doing it. I also just hate killing a tree for no reason and the live trees are such a huge pain to deal with.

    Artificial tree. In fact, since this is the best time of year to buy one (50-75% off regular price), I bought a new one pre-decorated with pine cones and berries. While I love the smell of pine trees, I don't believe in celebrating Christmas by killing a tree. My parents lived in Virginia. Every year they'd buy a live tree, then plant it on their property after Christmas. Where I live it's too hot and dry for pine trees to survive a summer even with special care, so artificial is best for me.

    You know, they are farmed for the purpose of harvesting for market, like corn or wheat or anything else? They just take a bit longer to grow. It's not like cutting one down on a random hill. I wouldn't do that, it would be wasteful.
