Yikes. I don't think so. I was hoping there would be a picture so I could see what they looked like.

WHY would you have an all black tree? Christmas is all about color and cheer. People amaze me, even after all this time people still amaze me...*shaking head*

it really is ugly, not to offend anyone who has one but, it looks like they burnt the tree then decorated it. just, no style or anything. and what's funny is that the catalog online where i got that picture, it said these trees were SOLD OUT!

I don't understand a black tree. A Christmas tree needs color to make it look like a Christmas tree. That is awful.

That is just morbid, CHRISTmas is supposed to be a season of joy, you are just killing the spirit w/ a black tree.
