After a long search to find a live tree for a reasonable price (I swear, you could mark up something 300% in West Knox. It's amazing how snobbery and perceived self importance can drive up prices), we finally ended up driving a couple counties over to find our tree. It was still more than we wanted to pay, but it was our only option. And it's a fir, not a pine (no thank you), and it's beautiful. Very full and well proportioned and fresh from the mountains of NC. Behold, the Ungleich Christmas tree!
