Should you get a real or fake tree this Christmas

Austin, TX – December 8, 2016 – Real Christmas trees are a great way to bring the holiday season to your home, but they aren’t for everyone.

For people that have been allergy tested, it’s easy to determine. Allergy tests cove pine and cypress trees which are two of the most common types of live Christmas trees in Texas. An allergy test will tell you if these are a bad idea to have in your home.   

“The ultimate best thing to do if you want a real tree and don’t know your allergies is to go with a Fir or spruce Tree,” Sunny Kallmer of Texan Allergy & Sinus Center said. “Just make sure you wash your tree when you get homes and get any allergenic tree pollen off of it and let it dry overnight.”

For those that know they have allergies but aren’t sure what they are, the smartest decision is to go fake with their Christmas tree.
