Artificial Christmas tree sales showed a 10 percent growth year over year in the
past five years, according to the National Christmas Tree Association, with U.S.
consumers purchasing 9.2 million artificial Christmas trees and spending $665
million in that time. Their growing popularity is attributed to several factors

saves money over time.
