Real or fake? Steps to picking out the perfect Christmas Tree

Posted: Updated:

There can be a sleigh full of confusion when it comes to picking out that perfect Christmas tree - especially whether to get a real or fake one. News 5 talked to a local expert this morning about what you and your family should know before you pick out your tree this Christmas!  

While artificial trees can be cheaper and less hassle, real trees can benefit the environment and provide business to local farmers. Plus, nothing beats the fresh smell of a real tree! 

However, there are certain tips you should follow if you're picking up a real tree this weekend! Make sure you keep it watered, so it doesn't dry out and water it often. Be sure to keep an eye on your pets. They may drink from the water at the base of your tree.

Of course, unplug those tree lights when you go to sleep. There are around 250 Christmas tree fires across the U.S. each year.
