There are all kinds of Christmas trees available each season, and more every year. In recognition of the growing numbers of people who have smaller living spaces or who live alone, a newer invention is what is called the "collapsible" Christmas tree. This is a fancy term for an artificial Christmas tree with a unique storage feature. The collapsible Christmas tree quite literally collapses down into a very flat, easy to store package that can be tucked away during the 11 months of the year it is not needed, then neatly removed and pulled up out of its storage position for use during the holiday season.

Two of the main reasons why you might be tempted to choose a collapsible Christmas tree rather than a real, live Christmas tree are space and allergies. For some people, finding the space for a live Christmas tree is nearly impossible, or the ability to get a live tree up the stairs or elevator and into their living space feels insurmountable. For others, seasons allergies go all but dormant in the winter time until Christmas hits and the fresh pine smell and pollen reactivates their sensitivity, making Christmas miserable instead of joyful. If either of these scenarios apply to you, the collapsible Christmas tree is the perfect alternative to keep the festive spirit high.
Some types of collapsible Christmas trees come already pre-decorated, complete with lights and ornaments. Others are sold as a tree only and you are responsible for decorating them as your particular tastes may indicate. you can also buy different sizes of collapsible Christmas tree, from a small table top version to a full standing Christmas tree for your living or family room.
