              The Martha Stewart trees at Kmart are nice. Prelit are the fold down type also. She even sells a tree stand that will make any artificial tree spin slowly. If you wait until the last minute...some Kmarts will throw in the decorations on the display tree if it is the only one of that style left. So waiting does have perks. I think her trees start at 3ft and go up to 71/2 ft.

                    Not to brag we have Three trees. We have a Douglas Fir artificial, and two other arti-trees. One is 7 ft. and one is 8 ft.and 4ft.tree as well. There si going to come a day where I can't colllect ornaments anymore. One tree is Disney, one tree -cat ornaments my wife has collected. Also a tree with ornaments my mother has given us(my brothers) every Christmas since we
                    were born. Some ornaments still Work after 10-20 years. It is amazing.
                    All I can say is artificial trees have come along way. They are getting more real then we know. All I can say is get one after the holidays at the local hardware store. It seems my wife and I have found the best deals on Xmas decorations at that time. I hope you can find a nice tree soon. I got the nice Douglas Fir tree after the holidays and it is huge, and has that realistic look to it on the branches.

                      This year Target had a set of lights that were half frosted white and the other half is blue. I grabbed about 5 boxes of them

                      Now all I need is the tree :lol:
                      I have bought some of my extra trees day after Christmas. Oh, I have a
                      snowflake/silver theme on one of my big trees, with blue, twinkling blue, and AQUA colored lights, it's beautiful.

                      One of the pool and patio places had about 25 fully packed decorated trees with a variety of colors and themes. It really gave me some neat ideas on what color lights look good together, of course they had the standard white lights, white with twinkling white, and multicolored lights, BUT the also had some really neat looking color combinations on large trees:

                      Red, Orange, and Yellow

                      Blue, Aqua, and Green

                      Red, Purple, and Orange

                      Yellow and Green

                      Purple, Blue, and Green

                      By just having two or three color lights on your tree
                      you have created a designer tree! Each color combination
                      really creates a different mood.

                      The other big tree I have is decorated in only Gold and Maroon
                      ornaments with the standard white and twinkling white lights.
                      Hmmmm, I may have to add some amber and/or yellow lights
                      to it.

                        Such a shame no one appreciates the charm of an actual tree anymore. It's all "unfold, plug in, and if you can be bothered put in a few ornaments" now. I find plastic such a poor alternative for a tree that has engaged in actual photosynthesis. But that's just me.

                          Re: O' Christmas Tree...

                          I agree with you pussnboots, I do like the real ones myself. BUT, here in SoCal (dunno where you are so I'm gonna pretend you dont live around here - lol) it gets really dry which dries out live trees like nobodys business. Plus the fire hazard and all, to me, a homeowner, it's just not worth the risk.

                          As for pre lit trees - eh. Seems like a really lazy way out of putting the lights up yourself.

                          For me, part of the whole xmas tree decorating tradition is putting the lights up on the tree. And I am in the minority, I hate the mini bulbs so many use nowadays and instead use the ones I grew up with, the smaller versions of the ones you put on your house at xmastime. You know, the screw in bulbs, now THATS part of what makes xmas special to me, it harkins memories of xmastime in my childhood.

                          So, sometime within the week after Thanksgiving I'll assemble my 7' tall fake tree, adorn it with my "old fashioned" xmas lites, and decorate it with all of my ornaments, most of which have sentimental value more than anything, including one nasty old Santa that was a gift card that says "To Baby Matt from Santa" .

                          Happy tree trimming everyone!

                            Oh I absolutely love those old fashioned C7 bulbs. They belong on a gentile-owned house in December, not those prissy icicle ones, haha. When you draw a Christmas light, that's what you draw. Aren't you glad Disneyland still uses them in everything?

                              I would love a real tree, and have had them in the past, but also am so alergic to the real tree's that I sufer badly. my kids are alergic and its not worth the suffering. as for the pre lite, I have a fiberoptic and we had to as our cat used to pull all the lights off. He is now at moms as we are all alergic to cats to so we could go for a tree and add lights, but darn I think my fiberoptic 6 foot tree is awsome! Simple yeah, but in this day and age big deal. yeah we could all go real but then theres the killing of the tree, the mess, the drying out and needles all over everything. So whats the point? The point is some can and do love real tree's some like pre lit, some like to add lights and some of us like tacky and colorful. Yep thats what makes the world go round, we can all have what we want.

                                Well you shouldn't let anyone deprive you of your tree of choice of course. Especially when you're allergic to the alternative.

                                I was just expressing a little general annoyance. People want everything done for them these days, to the point of electrical knives and Christmas trees that kind of find their way to your house from Kmart, set themselves up and fold themselves neatly into a corner of your attic after New Year's. To me, like O-nut, a great deal of Christmas' charm lies in the work it brings along. I even love the fact that my lights never seem to work right away. Besides, nothing quite beats the payoff of seeing your masterpiece finished after you spent virtually three days cursing on a stepladder.
