People Still Prefer Real Christmas Trees

According to a Harris Interactive poll for the National Christmas Tree Association, Americans have not lost their interest in traditional holiday decor, spending $1.7 billion last year on Christmas trees. Real trees outsold artificial trees three to one last year, 30.8 million versus 9.5 artificial trees.

Sixteen percent of real trees were cut down by the consumer as opposed to purchased from a vendor.

The latest trend in Christmas tree shapes is the ‘skinny’ tree – read more about it in this Wall Street Journal article.

In spite of the trend towards 'skinny' trees, the majority still prefer a more traditional shape.
