 My house is small and I use all my space...so when it's time for the tree, I don;t want to move a whole room of furniture around for it! I have a 8 foot slim tree and LOVE it, BUT my kids hate it becaue they want the big tree back.

What do you have? Do you make do with your space, have plenty of space, or move that room of furniture around to fit it in?christmas tree

I actually had a huge tree in our other house, and sold it at yard sale a couple of years ago....it was a pain in the butt to put up.   The only thing I had to move was one end table and a chair.  I always felt like I was smothering while it was up, but it was beautiful.

I since have bought a pre lite  slim tree , and love it. 

We live in a different house this year, and I plan on putting up at least three or  four trees.  One in the foyer, one maybe in the den, one on the enclosed back porch, and one in the foyer upstairs....None of them will be huge trees either.  But I do like a full tree, but I plan on still using slim trees.

Dont have lots of space. I have a small tree, well probably 5 ft 6 in. I don't know for sure the height.

We have a new 7.5 ft tree that is about 4.5-5 ft in diameter at the bottom. We have to take out a chair to put it in the living room but I don't mind. It is a beautiful tree with almost 1800 tips and 700 or 800 lights on it, I can't remember.

We live in an apartment and we have a 4 ft tree... SD loves it cause she can decorate the whole thing lol. Works for us, I can't wait till we get a house and get a big tree though!

My mil has a small family room and she actually hangs up the tree upside down from the ceiling. Leaves TONS of room and looks really cool!

We have a 9  foot slim-line tree.

I usually move the furniture around for it...mostly because I dont like it in the same spot each year.

I don't actually know how big it is - but it's big. We rearrange the furniture to make it fit in the living room. We have a slightly smaller tree for our family room as well...no need to move furniture for that one.
