If you really need the authentic smell of a tree, try one with a root ball that can be planted later. Fringe benefit: not only did you save a tree, but a living tree wont turn into kindling three days in. OR, do the fake tree, and get a nice wreath made from trimmings of real ones. The fragrance is the same, but no trees were killed in the process.

For anybody who doesn't have the room for a tree and is allowed to tack things to the wall, A fairly interesting way to create a tree is to use ribbon and greeting cards. First make a star shape out of recyclable gift wrap material. Staple it to the wall at the height you want your tree to be. Then cut long lengths of ribbon. You want an odd number of ribbons. Depending on how many holiday cards you expect, 3 to 5 ribbons is usually enough. The ribbon in the middle is the longest and can go all the way to the baseboard if you want. But, it's not necessary. Once you get the ribbons in place, then as you get greeting cards you can staple them along the ribbon. It is a creative way to display your cards. Most cards can be put in the recycle bin; but, they can also be kept for future craft projects.

Leave the trees in the ground.

For me it's no X-mas tree at all. Don't like the season when you have to shop 'til you drop.

The trees are fine only in the forest :)
