When we moved to Colorado several years ago, we figured everyone had a real Christmas tree. Imagine our shock to discover that people living in this beautiful winter wonderland do not have a higher percentage of real trees than any other location! :)
In an effort to help out anyone who wants to have a real tree (we think it’s essential!), here’s some prices I found online and from sales flyers for various Christmas trees.
Make sure you take the Real Tree Vs. Fake Tree Poll at the bottom of this post!

- Douglas Fir 2-3′ – $9.99

- Douglas Fir 5-7′ – $19.99
- Douglas Fir 7-9′ – $28.99
- Douglas Fir 9-12′ – $39.99 and up
They also have “white, natural firs”, but I have no idea how those differ or what the prices are.
