Bronx residents ready for Christmas tree shopping

With Thanksgiving now over, some Bronx residents are struggling to decide between a real Christmas tree or a fake one. 



The Home Depot in the Bronx has already had Christmas trees in stock for several weeks. 



Paula Matias, an employee at Home Depot, says if you love the smell of pine then a real tree is the right choice. She says they have various items at the store that can help the evergreen last for two months. 



She says artificial trees could be better for people who work a lot or are concerned about caring for a real tree.



The trees at Home Depot range from four feet to nine feet tall and many already come with lights.
