According to Consumer Reports, 95 million U.S. households are expected to put up a Christmas tree this year!
So, we want to know - what's the better value, real or fake?
Which is a better value when it comes to Christmas trees?December 3, 2018
The average cost of a real Christmas tree is around $75. So, over the span of 10 years, you’d spend $750 on your trees. A lot of folks say the money they invest in a real tree is worth it because their family tradition is a priceless experience.
The average price of a fake Christmas tree is about $100. So over the span of 10 years, you’d spend just that 100 dollars on your tree. However, you’re throwing away money if you don’t store it properly! Just throwing your tree in a closet or jamming it into a box will destroy it and you’d end up spending more money on a new tree!
However, if we’re just talking dollars and cents, the fake tree wins by $650 in a 10-year span. Regardless, if you buy a real or fake tree, we all know the hardest part is getting the decorations exactly perfect.
