A fresh-cut real Christmas tree for the holidays is lovely, but it can also come with headaches. If the trunk isn't big enough, it could fall over. You’ll be cleaning up pine needles for weeks after you take the tree down. Also, a real tree can be a fire hazard if you aren’t diligent with watering it daily.
So, if you’ve decided to skip the hassle of having a real tree and want to get a fake fir, now is a good time to buy one. Many retailers are offering Black Friday deals on artificial Christmas trees. Whether you’re looking for a tree that’s plain, pre-lit, flocked, full, thin, short, tall, or tabletop size, retailers like Walmart, Michaels, Wayfair, Target, and Amazon have many options for you to choose from. With many of these deals, you don’t have to wait until Black Friday to score big on holiday trees to decorate your home.

When is the best time to buy a Christmas tree?
The best time to buy an artificial Christmas tree is typically after the holidays are over and the stores are clearing out their remaining holiday decorations. However, if you can’t wait until then and you need a tree for the upcoming holidays, you can save some money buying your tree during the Black Friday sales this week.
