According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Americans purchase 33 million Christmas trees every year. That’s a lot of firs and spruces that will need to be thrown away after Santa leaves.
Luckily, we have a solution for the wintertime waste: decorate the trees so lavishly that no one would dream of disposing them.
Take the 11 stunning examples we’ve collected here. Some have been exquisitely trimmed by a world-class fashion designer. Others have been constructed with unique materials.
All of them have been erected so marvelously that we wouldn’t be shocked if hotels chose to display them well into spring.
