Home Depot and Lowe's are reportedly stocking fewer fake Christmas trees this year as consumers look to save money.
It's a double green purchase.
Shoppers seem ready to trade the long-term benefit of a reusable fake tree for the short-term savings of a cut tree, which typically costs less. Artificial trees at Home Depot are $79.97 to $269; cut trees are $9.97 to $100. Lowe’s sells fake trees for $38 to $298, which is $100 less than the highest- price fake last year. Its live trees cost $15.97 to $178.
