Christmas tree expert Billy Romp whos been selling trees on the streets of New York out of his camper for 21 years says people dont have to drop big bucks on a big tree when a small one is just as satisfying.
He says, Size matters, but not in the way you think. You can go from an eight-foot tree to a seven-foot one and still impress everyone with your good taste and spend less money.
Romp also assures that long, thinner trees fit better in homes where a broad, fat one might be just too big, so theres money-saving potential there as well.
With all his years in the business, Romp says he can spot exactly the kind of tree someone wants based on their outfit.
He explains, A sharp dresser isnt gonna want a scraggly tree. And a hippie with a bunch of sweaters is not gonna want a manicured tree.
Romp is the author of Christmas On Jane Street (HarperCollins).
