The idea is that you buy a live tree and keep it on your own rooftop or balcony, for reuse as a Christmas tree the following year...
Rather an impossibility if one does not have a balcony or penthouse.

A live tree does have better balance than a cut tree.

An interesting idea but only a fairly small minority have the means for that.
Apparently moggy has the means -- I was questioning the application:

...as it was a live tree, we kept it for a few months, before putting outside for free pick up for someone to take for their roof/balcony
