I always vowed that I would only have real trees - until I got my first fake one. Soooo much better.
I never had to wait for my husband to go get it or cut it or etc - we just pulled it out of the attic on Thanksgiving night and while he was at work, I could assemble it, decorate it, and not have to worry about watering it.
My tree was gotten on clearance and had color coded ends for easy assembly. It took a bit to get the hang of fluffing the branches, but just remember to use both the vertical and horizontal space. And you can always bend the ends a little if a heavier ornament seems hard to hang.
And if he’s worried about the lack of “pine tree scent” - there’s lots of little gadgets for that - sprays, ornaments, etc. (personally, I used a Yankee candle)
