Whether you're a seasoned real tree vet or you're thinking about tossing out the artificial tree and getting a real one, I've found 10 places in West Michigan to get a tree.

Things To Know About A Real Christmas Tree

I'll share the ten places I found in West Michigan to get a real Christmas tree in a second, but I wanted to give you some important information to consider before you load up the family in the car to pick one out.

Allergies From The Tree

One thing you may not even think about when considering getting a real tree is allergies. If someone who lives in your house or a guest who's coming to visit has bad allergies or sensitivities to tree sap, bringing a real tree from the outdoors into your confined house could make a very unmerry Christmas.

Space For The Tree

You don't want to find yourself like Clark Griswold in Christmas Vacation with a giant tree in your house that doesn't fit because you didn't get the proper size.

It's a good idea to measure the space for both the tree's height and width, as well as doorways, stairs, and other spaces you may have to fit the tree through in order to bring it home and set it up.

Caring For The Tree

If you're like me and my wife, we struggle to keep house plants alive and a real tree is no different. You will need to be able to water the tree daily and keep pets away from its potentially toxic or sharp needles.

If you're ready for a real Christmas tree then here are ten great places in West Michigan.
