    The lap dog isn't happening either. If I get a dog it will be something respectable for a man to have.

        I asked my regular supplier to bring me a 7-7.5' tree. The tree he brought was a good 10', now about 9.5' after clippage to accommodate the star on top. I'd estimate the tree's diameter at its widest point at 7'. I'll be taking it down by myself and getting it through a ~32" sliding glass door (not the one the supplier and I forced it through on arrival) onto my back deck. This will entail first cutting the tree into sections with my pruning saw, if it can deal with a trunk this thick. If not, then with my chainsaw. In the family room. I will then throw the sections off the deck, pile them at a spot away from the house and woods, and burn them, probably next spring.

        On the plus side, in this Christmas tree paradise of Western North Carolina, the price of the dendrological behemoth was $40.

          Dump it in a local lake when no one is watching. Mark spot on GPS. Come back and enjoy the spoils of your fish habitat.

            What few lakes there are up here are artificial, virtually fishless, and owned/supervised by the Federal Government. I've heard of your idea before though, and it's a good one in the right place.

                Wish I would've thought of this!

                  This is the first year I've had a live tree since I was a child. It will probably get chopped up and burned in the fire pit.

                    Be careful, that thing contains some fuel and will burn pretty high and quick.

                            Ours is a new artificial tree. We euthanized our ten year old one last year. Glad I'm up here in SC so I don't have to deal with it.
