Artificial trees have many advantages over live trees, starting with the fact that getting one doesn’t require cutting down a living tree. We’ve put together a list of the top reasons to choose an faux Christmas tree over a real tree this holiday season – read on to learn more!
Artificial trees usually come in a compact cardboard box that will easily fit in most cars or they can even be delivered right to you front door. Artificial ficus trees also typically come with a stand designed specifically for that particular tree which helps to mitigate the risk of the tree leaning or tipping over.
It may seem like an artificial tree costs more than a real tree if you only look at the cost of using it one season. However, an artificial tree can easily last 10+ years whereas a real tree often hits the trash after only a few weeks. When you calculate the cost of using the artificial tree for several years, it only takes a few years to come out ahead. After that, it’s like having a free tree every year! Also, as we mentioned previously, artificial trees often include a tree stand and lights (if the tree is pre-lit), so that’s even more savings you can count on!
Live trees have a tendency to dry out while artificial trees are made from fire retardant materials, making them a much safer option for your home. You do, however, need to be diligent about not overloading electrical sockets with lights.
Additionally, when live trees dry out their branches tend to droop which can cause ornaments to slip off and shatter. Artificial trees hold their shape so you can rest easy that your favorite ornaments won’t easily fall off branches and break.
