Are There Any Eco-Friendly Christmas Tree Options?

Q: Are there any good eco-friendly options for a Christmas tree? We are opposed to using a real, chopped-down tree (or a potted one because we live in an apt) or a conventional fake tree because they're made of plastics and other petroleum-based products. We want something of a conventional size (6-8 ft) that we can decorate conventionally with led lights and heirloom ornaments without it becoming a fire hazard, and need it to be budget-friendly (less than $500). Does such a thing exist? We haven't been able to find anything! Please help!
