I live out in the woods and often there are trees growing together that won't grow much because they are crowded out by other trees. So I will select a tree that needs to be taken out so others can grow up to be a great big full tree, or one that will be eventually cut anyway because it happens to be growing too close to the side of the road.
When you don't know what you want it's probably time to begin enjoying what you have.
I do not celebrate Xmas anymore, when I did (I had kids) we used the same tree for years... WE bought it when it was 2 feet tall (and my son was one), in the end, my son was 8 yo and the tree (in a vase) was 7 feet tall... It was cool.

We usually go cut down our own tree for Christmas but this year I wanted to go greener and not kill a tree.
So . . . we decide to go buy a live pine tree and after the holiday (in spring) plant it in our yard.
We went yesterday and bought 2 trees because they were small. We get them home and THEN I read the tag. They cannot be placed in under 45 degree temps. We live in Michigan the temp drops below zero frequently.
We apparently bought ourselves 2 indoor pine trees.
