Trendy or tacky? Fake tree sparks controversy

Standing 35 feet tall and decorated with more than 22,000 lights, Birmingham, Michigan has welcomed a new tree to Shain Park for the holiday season.

But the tree is a fake. Apparently the real tree the city used to use did not look good enough.

The debate among residents is whether the tree is tacky or trendy. Birmingham traded in the traditional, real Christmas tree for the artificial blue spruce, stirring up mixed emotions.
