My office has a contract with a tree rental service and every Monday, the workers of that company will bring in fresh and green trees to replace those that have been in the office for the week. In a way, it is rather hassle free as it means that no one will need to have the responsibility of watering the tree in the office or pruning the dead leaves. However, when I was recently in the client’s office, I noticed that they had some silk trees instead of live ones in their reception area. The silk trees were very realistic looking and probably cost less than the tree rental service that we use. Perhaps I should suggest that our HR change to silk trees instead too.
