Just a thought, lest I be considered totally "Real Christmas Tree Zealot of the Year".
I hope someday to have a house large enough to have "theme trees" in different rooms. One of those rooms I even want an aluminum tree just for the nostalgia. But I still want the real tree for the experience and tradition with my son.

santahat Global Warming Reaches into Christmas

I think a real tree can be a special Christmas experience for younger children. As I recall from many years ago there was something magical about having something from the outdoors in your house. However since we don't have any little ones around to consider I'm sold on artificial trees. I love having the perfect trees for different rooms in the basement ready to go up right after Thanksgiving. Although it takes longer to assemble our large tree than it did to set up a real one we don't have to worry about it drying out before I'm ready to take it down in mid January. I don't think we are harming the planet. We reuse the trees every holiday season (our largest tree is over 10 years old) and we save the fuel and eliminate the emissions associated with driving to the tree farm and picking the tree up and transporting it to a facility for mulching.
