    How can a fake one be more authentic than the real thing? :O

    For me it's always a real one - a 7ft tree that doesn't drop needles only costs about £10 where I am and it looks/smells so much better!
    Probably because fake ones have the look of an evergreen that's still in the ground growing, rather than being on its way to dead within a few weeks.

    I am real, although the tree is fake.
    I see some people say bringing the tree back from the shop is a tradition.
    In my house, putting up the tree is a family effort so thats quite fun.

    Always real. It might be more expensive but it's much nicer.

    Real because we own a plantation that cultivates trees for this purpose.
    My dad wants a small Christmas tree plantation in their next house.

    It is definitely a good business.

    Highly profitable and generally quite an easy one to cultivate.

    How many acres?

    Fake so bugs don't escape and roam the house, and so we can use it again!

    Oh he doesn't want to sell them. Just have enough space to grow a few for him and my mum. Their gonna want two trees from next year: the big one in the sitting room and the small mushroom one for my dad's office (mum got fed up of all the mushrooms on the tree and there was no space for other things).

    Fake, couldn't afford to be buying a real tree every year. Plus fake ones don't leave pine needled everywhere. Though I will admit the real ones can look much more stunning.
