As the Thanksgiving food coma starts to wear off, you’re inevitably faced with figuring out where to buy Christmas trees in Los Angeles. Even if you only have space for a little tabletop tree, there are plenty of options: real or fake? Pre-cut or cut your own? Tinsel or tons of tinsel? After you’ve scoped out some Christmas lights and holiday markets for inspiration and have bought some new ornaments, start decorating with a tree from one of these places, including real, fake and live trees, along with Christmas tree farms where you can cut your own.
