The most wonderful time of the year just doesn't seem so wonderful when you lug home your Christmas tree and realize it's far too big for the space you thought you measured properly. But it happens to the best of us, and instead of getting discouraged or immediately resorting to a Charlie Brown tree, rest assured there are other options (including these half Christmas trees your pets won't destroy.)
Another option, however, is a different kind of half tree. Instead, this tree has a flat back, making it perfect for getting that 7 foot tree effect without it stretching 5 feet into your personal space. Because, of course, a 15-foot tree isn't an option for everyone.
Flatback Christmas Trees are the space-saving holiday gifts we could all use, no matter how big your room is. Not only do they look beautiful, but you'd never know they were, well...backless—they're just that full. One reviewer of the tree said, "We love this tree! It was very easy to assemble and it's perfect for our small apartment (700 square feet.) Everyone thinks it's a real tree until I tell them it's not. They are also surprised when they realize it's only half a tree because it's so full."
Seriously, could you ask for more? Not only will it help you avoid having to clean up tons of needles, it'll save you so much space. Though the tallest and most realistic ones are not cheap (especially considering you're paying for only half a tree), reviewers insist they're oh so worth it.
