If that story sounds familiar do not feel bad. Christmas tree needles are a fact of Christmas.  If you are going to own a Christmas tree, you are going to have needles and Christmas tree needles are going to drop.  After they drop they are going to get all over the carpet and they are going to stay there until they find a new home, in your foot.  No amount of vacuuming will seem to do the trick. So what will do the trick in the fight against Christmas tree needles?  Some people think that they need to feed their tree more water, so they cut the trunk of the tree at an angle to increase its "mouth."  The problem with this is that while the "mouth" gets bigger, the water in the tree pot tends to drop quicker.  Forget to fill the pot with water a time or two and you will be left with a dry mouth, except once the Christmas tree's mouth dries up it cannot be rehydrated. Do not even attempt to bring out the artificial Christmas tree you bought five years ago because you were too lazy to go out and buy a Christmas tree.  Sure it will work.  The lights will light, the decorations will be decorative but you will find something missing.  Something that pleases the olfactory region, that lets you know that Christmas has arrived.  That sweet smell that is too heavenly not to come from this Earth.  You would know it as the smell that can only be known as that of a real Christmas tree. So what to do when these Christmas tree needle in the foot prevention techniques fail?  What of the sprays, cuts, and false Christmas trees?  Are all options exhausted?  Is all hope lost?  Not so fast!  Like a true Christmas miracle, it is revealed:  the rentable Christmas tree!  No hassle, no fuss, and best of all, no mess!  When you rent a Christmas tree all your worries are gone.  Able bodied workers will deliver the Christmas tree just in time for Christmas.  But that's not all!  The tree is pruned to a perfect shape and comes live!  No worries about needles dropping from a dead Christmas tree.  After you have enjoyed all that Christmas has to offer, the same able bodied workers who delivered your rented Christmas tree will come around to collect it.  No more dragging a dead Christmas tree through the house leaving a trail of needles that will one day end up in your exposed extremities.  No more worries about scratching the paint job of your car. Beyond the annoying needle problem that is solved when you rent a Christmas tree, you are also doing yourself, your friends, your family, and even small (and large) woodland animals a favor.  Renting Christmas trees are very environmentally friendly.  Once you have finished with your rented Christmas tree the tree is planted back into the wild, forming a wooded area.  This will offset your annual carbon footprint by ten percent.  If every tree that was cut down in the United Kingdom each year (eight million) was a rented Christmas tree, the result would be a carbon footprint that was offset by 8 million tonnes. I cannot guarantee that a squirrel will personally shake your hand when you rent a Christmas tree but they will owe you thanks.  This is because when you rent a Christmas tree instead of buy a Christmas tree, you will receive a tree that is to be his home. When the time comes to select a Christmas tree keep these thoughts in mind.  Do not buy a Christmas tree that will leave your carpet and interior of your house looking like a porcupine has shed its quills.   Do not even give a second of your thought to anything called a Christmas tree that is made of plastic.  Select a Christmas tree that is good for you, good for your carpet, and good for the atmosphere.  Rent a Christmas tree.
