Help pick a new Christmas tree

    Hi folks,

    We had an artificial Christmas tree for last ten years and its worse for wear and has been passed on. It was a good 7.5 foot high I'd say and pretty wide and full. Three parts to it, each stood on top of each other and then a good hour of fanning out branches for realism. We had thought of getting a real tree this year but our daughter wants the tree up early December and we're not sure a real tree would last 5 weeks? 
    Whats the conventional wisdom these days re artificial trees. For space reasons 7 foot high and a narrower profile would suit our space better. We want to buy a 'good' tree that will last a number of years. Are pre lit trees worth it? We have a two sets of lights and loads of spare bulbs already so don't need a pre lit one per say. Would be good if it was easy to store, easy to put up and looked realistic. Budget probably around 200 euro but we are flexible. We had thought get a real tree and buy a artificial one post Christmas in the sales for next year but not sure how feasible that is.
