Confirmed: Americans prefer fake Christmas trees

Sixty-two percent of Britons, 58 percent of Canadians and 53 percent of Americans use artificial trees, while only about 16 percent of Americans and Canadians and 14 percent of Britons use fresh trees, according to poll done by Angus Reid Public Opinion.

Nearly a third of the people surveyed in each country said they did not plan to have a tree at all, the survey found.

Most artificial tree users cited convenience as their motivation, and a third felt it was better for the environment, according to the polling firm.
