Some people don't put up a Christmas tree because of limited space. Now they no longer can use that excuse because they do not have to purchase a huge tree. There is such a thing as a half Christmas tree that has become very popular for people who want a tree but not a very large one.

Half Christmas tree

Yes, there is a market for half Christmas trees. According to a spokesperson for Wayfair, half Christmas trees are seeing a 150 percent increase this year. The company has an entire section of only half trees.

Depending on the brand and size, the trees range in price from $45 to $200 or more. You can also find them at stores like Home Depot, Target, and Walmart.

Advantages of half Christmas trees

When you put up a Half Christmas Tree, you save on decorations because you don't need as many as you would need for a whole tree. Therefore, you will have extra money for something else. When you look at the tree above, you would not know it is only a half one unless someone told you. Usually, people see only half of a whole tree in most cases if it is pushed against a wall.

The back of some Christmas trees is never seen by family members and visitors unless it is in the middle of the floor.

The half tree might be ideal for people who want to put up more than one tree. They can purchase two halves for two separate rooms. Another good thing about this trend is that it takes half the time to put up and decorate and half the time to take down. Not only are you saving money, but you are saving time as well.

Don't expect to find a live Douglas Fir that has been cut in half on a lot. Only artificial trees have been cut from top to bottom so they can be pushed flat against a wall or in a corner. At first, you might think it is odd for someone to have half of a Christmas tree, but if you visit your friends during the Christmas holiday, you will be surprised that perhaps they have a half tree.

Would you purchase a half Christmas tree now that you know they exist?

Or would you stick with the traditional whole tree?
