In my entire life - many decades long - I've only had real Christmas trees. Some were Douglas firs, some Fraser firs, and long ago Balsams. Yes, the fragrance is wonderful. I always wonder when I will discover the last needle. Will it be in March? June? Somehow those little buggers can find a place to hide no matter how hard one cleans and vacuums. After we take the tree down we either stake it in the yard not too far from the bird bath or saw the branches off and use them to cover rose bushes. This year, because we were going out of town before Christmas, we bought a small potted dwarf Alberta spruce, decorated it and then before we left, planted it - pot and all - to await spring. I never realized these trees have a lovely, lemony fragrance.
