The debate of artificial or Fresh cut Christmas trees

West Texas -- The great debate, not about the presidential campaign but about whether artificial Christmas trees are better than fresh cut Christmas trees.

Some enjoy the beautiful bright artificial Christmas trees and others enjoy the fresh smell of a natural tree during the holidays.

CBS 7 spoke with a master gardener who says natural may not be the way to go.

“To be honest I have an artificial Christmas tree and have for years, but there's the purist who still wants that smell for Christmas and that smell goes along with Christmas and so they still like to have a fresh cut tree,” said Carol Siddall, a master gardener.

She goes on to say that we may begin to see less and less fresh cut trees in places like John’s Corner.

However many are still bringing fresh cut trees into their homes for Christmas.
