If you are looking for modern Christmas trees, here are a few options for you:

1. If you are gung-ho on getting a real tree, be sure to bring it to a tree recycling center when you’re finished.

2. Go buy someone’s old fake one on Craigslist or eBay so it goes to use instead of in the trash (we got a small 1950s aluminum one a few years back).

3. Try opting for one of the following modern options:
