After choosing your favorite tree from the tree farm or lot, you still have to carry it home and get it into the house. This often means that you're leaving a trail of needles from your front door to the living room.

Wrap a loop of duct tape, sticky side out, around your hand, and use it to pull those stubborn needles out of your rug, carpet, or grooves in your wood floor.
