A Real Christmas Tree vs an Artificial One: Costs and Cons

December 5th, 2022

Live Christmas trees are better for the environment than artificial Christmas trees: They’re renewable and recyclable, unlike that petroleum-derived faux model. 

In terms of price there’s not much difference between the real and fake varieties, unless you get really fancy with an artificial one. Depending on where you live and the size and species of tree you buy, the real deal runs about $20 to $150 annually.

You can pick up a basic fake Christmas tree for less than $50 at some big-box retailers. Prices go up from there to as much as $450 for a deluxe, already-lit number. Buy a used artificial tree, and you'll save — plus have less impact on the environment.
