Christmas websites show more than 70 percent of American homes now have artificial trees, saying real trees could be a disappearing tradition.
More and more people are choosing fake trees because of convenience. You don't have to clean up pine needles, you don't have to cut them down, and they last from year to year, which helps save money.
They're lighter and easier to manage, and experts say they're great if you're allergic to pine.
