Rent a tree for the holidays.

Instead of buying a tree that's been freshly cut or buying an artificial tree, try looking for alternatives in your community. For example, in California you can rent a tree at Living Trees. When you're done with the tree, you give it back and it keeps on growing. The best part, you can try to get the same exact tree the following year!
