Unless you decide to go with an outdoor artificial tree that is made from something other than what the interior trees are made of. Many outdoor artificial trees are made from metal to ensure that it can handle the elements. Or you could opt for artificial trees that are made from a material that runs off of an air blower that stay up as long as they are plugged in.

With this potion, you will find that you can make this as large or as small as you wish!
