Caroline and Bx, I'm going to have to disagree with you. We bought (and will continue to buy) our tree from a tree farm. There are many farmers in our area that grow the trees specifically for this purpose. Meaning, when you buy a tree, a new tree is being planted in its place. Additionally, I'm planning to chop up our tree at the end of the season and save it for fire wood (as long as I don't come across any research which says this is a bad idea). If it turns out to be a bad idea, there are plenty of places that recycle the trees so that they are used for mulch in gardens. So in my eyes, I get to support local farmers, be green, and still have a beautiful, real tree in my home. PS: Even megastores like Home Depot purchase their trees from tree farms and I'm sure they are replanting if they want to stay in business.
