WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Tons of shoppers in the stores and tree lots lining the roads must mean Christmas is here.

While many families have moved toward artificial trees, many still find joy in picking out that favorite fir. Whether you prefer a 10-footer or a Charlie Brown-style tree, you can find it all this season.

Real tree lovers say it's all about the scent when it comes to fake versus for real.

"It's just more magical,” said Cindy Richey of Carolina Girl Flowers. “It just brings life into the Christmas scene at home with the smell and everything. Even the artificial smells just can't compete with a good live tree. With the economy and everything going kind of strange on us right now, I think having a live tree and a fresh tree just brings back the spirit of a good Christmas."

Richey says a fresh cut tree is important because it will last longer and smell fresher.
