Q: After watching a video in an emergency training class which illustrated just how fast a live tree can burn and catch a room on fire I have decided that it just isn't worth the risk of having a tree in my house this year. Bah Humbug I know. I'm also not a fan of your standard artificial tree. I ran across a fun chalkboard tree and thought the Apartment Therapy viewers may have additional ideas for incorporating a tree motif into my holiday decorating without using an actual tree.
