I didn't know that. Interesting tidbit. We haven't had a live tree in a very long time as we all would suffer from allergies. One live tree that we planted after Christmas almost 40 years ago is very, very large now.

I did not buy real trees for many years.... my  thought: the less people buy, the less trees will be cut and trashed.

I read your comment, and tried it on our plastic tree and it didn't work!

Just my X-Mas humor, we always buy or in this year's case, cut down our own tree. Love the smell it gives off. We have a X-Mas Tree farm just 2 miles from our house and you can cut down your own tree, (any size) for $25.00. I can't even get a fake one for that!

I enjoy the scent of a real christmas tree every year.  We plant afterwards, we buy a live tree with a root ball, not a cut tree.

I was not aware of that! You learn something new every day! We do a fake tree inside but hang a real wreath on the door. I love the way it smells when I open the front door as the smell stays between the front door and storm door.
