“I get a fake tree that’s small because I live in a small apartment. But my parents get a live one. You can’t beat the smell.”

“Live tree. Always.”

Insisted on a live tree until the great spider attack of 2003. Overnight our tree was wrapped in this beautiful giant cobweb and hundreds of tiny spiders were marching up strands of cobweb to the family room ceiling. Live tree went out and fake tree came in.

That sounds fasinating, wish I could have saw it. Did you take some pictures or a make a video?

Once a tree is sawed off isn't it dead? Live trees need roots.

I think the question should be, do you kill, or cause to be killed a tree so you can have it in your living room. You could plant an evergreen in your yard to enjoy the year round, and don't put lights on it, because the heat will kill the tree. Just put on other decorations and that way all who drive or walk by can enjoy it.

In that case, we cause a tree to be killed.
