The natural ones may seem a little bit more…relaxed, than their plastic counter parts. But no matter how real someone claims their fake tree looks, face it, they’re not fooling anybody! No tree created by nature is so perfectly symmetrical, the branches do not look as if they have weathered nature’s storms and winds. As a matter of fact, they don’t move. They would not sway in the wind. That said, they do look perfect at all times. They are low maintenance, requiring no clean up or watering!

Which do you prefer, real or fake?

Every year we support the Rotary Club by buying ours from their fund raiser at Mill Creek Park in South Portland.

And yes, they are real, and they are spectacular!
