An 18-foot Colorado Blue Spruce Christmas tree stands brown and stripped of its needles Wednesday in the Rotunda of the Rhode Island Statehouse in Providence. Workers dried it with commercial fans and sprayed it with a fire-retardant chemical. They were following the stringent new fire code enacted after a deadly 2003 nightclub blaze.

Question: I know of a local box store that sold trees this year that lost many of there needles after a week. For those of you with real trees, how are they doing? Are they going to make it until Monday?
