I resisted artificial trees until we built this home and it just seems to work best for us. What about you? I am not familiar with all of the types of trees in Oz, I know that there is 20% forest land, but probably different from N. American forests :)
Oh okay, I see..yes, it certainly needed to be trimmed

We just have an artificial one too...we will be putting it up tomorrow so I will take a photo
