Putting up the Christmas tree is a beloved holiday tradition that families and friends can share together every step of the way. From picking out the perfect tree to decorating it, memories are made as you and yours gather to celebrate around this iconic festive symbol.

1How do I choose the right Christmas tree?

The first thing to consider when choosing the ideal Christmas tree is deciding where it will be located. If you live in an apartment or condo, check to see if there are rules that prevent you from having real trees in the building. The square footage and ceiling height of the room will also dictate how tall, full, or slim your tree should be. Here are some artificial trees to help you choose the tree that’s right for you.
