Product: Apartment Christmas Decorations: Compact Tree

Seeing Christmas trees on the street in February got me thinking.  How do you deal with Christmas in an apartment and how do you keep it green?  Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.

The Product:
Collapsible Christmas tree. 

How it might work:
Paper - A paper lantern with alternating rings or an origami tree.   Second one got me thinking of a metal fold away version ...
Fold Away - Metal rotational panels, slices of a tree's cross section.
Inflated - Plastic in the form of a tree.

Decorated paper Christmas tree  I like this one the most.  My version would be made from recycled metal with a hinged center.  Bring it out every year and decorate.  Just fold back a hinge when you need the extra space for a holiday party.
Inflatable
