Anyone who has ever come home to their Christmas tree laying on the floor knows what jerks pets can be. One company has a solution.

Argos - which is based in the UK - has created the Half Tree. Basically, it's an artificial Christmas tree with the bottom "trimmed" off. The tree is about 6 feet tall - and keeps ornaments, tinsel and lights away from pets and ever toddlers.

Unfortunately, the half-tree is only available in England and Ireland this year.

Don't you feel like you could accomplish the same thing by just not putting the branches on your own artificial tree and wrapping the trunk in green garland? I don't know - I'm just throwing that out there. 

Have you ever had a pet that ruined your Christmas tree? Do you think this "Half Tree" would help?
