The very best potted trees are grown in growing pots, ideally the best way is pot in pot which is when a tree planted in a pot is placed into another pot. This way, the root system is air pruned, and stays inside the pot. As the tree grows it is placed into bigger pots to ensure enough room for the root system to develop optimally.

The fake trees have been “eating the cake” of the Real Tree growers for a number of years. Fake tabletop trees are available, but they don’t grow much when you plant them outside. Perhaps the real tabletop tree could help slow the growth of purchasing of fake trees made in China from petroleum products.
Real tabletop trees smell good, are very little fuss to bring into a home or office, can be planted out immediately after using it at Christmas or keeping it in the garage until spring, can be given as a “post Christmas’ gift to a relative or friend, does not destroy a natural resource, and make you feel good by supporting a local tree farmer instead of the Chinese and the foreign oil cartel.
