Not everybody has room for a monster Christmas tree. We’ve rounded up 10 tiny live or fresh-cut trees and topiaries, just right for a tabletop or front stoop (including some you can plant in the garden after the holiday season ends):

Above: A fresh-cut Tabletop Noble Fir with blue-green needles measures from 3 to 4 feet high and comes with an iron bucket for display; it is $78 from Terrain.

Above: Pulled from the greenhouse the day it is shipped, a 4-foot Live Grand Fir tree can be planted in the ground after the holiday season ends (if you have enough space in your landscape for a tree that at maturity will reach a height of 300 feet). It is $24.99 plus $31.64 for shipping from Jonsteen Company via Amazon.

Above: A 3-foot-high fresh-cut Tabletop Fraser Fir farmed on the Blue Ridge Mountains has soft needles and comes with a tree stand. It is $59.99 (and ships free) from Blue Ridge Christmas Trees via Amazon.

Above: A Tabletop Balsam Fir with shiny dark green needles measures from 3 to 4 feet high and comes with an iron bucket for display; $68 from Terrain.

Above: A 36-inch-high fresh-cut Fraser Fir Christmas Tree grown in North Carolina comes with a stand and is $39.95 from Plow & Hearth.

Above: An aromatic Tabletop Balsam Fir Tree is 4 feet tall and is $67 from Hill Top Tree.

Above: Standing 20 inches tall, a Miniature Boxwood Tree topiary is $87.95 from Gardens of the Blue Ridge.

Above: A Rosemary Tree wrapped in burlap is 20 inches tall (including its pot) and would look just right draped in a string of miniature lights; $29.95 from Sur La Table.

Above: Potted in a birch container, a Lemon Cypress has bright chartreuse foliage and is 18 inches high. It is $39.95 from Jackson & Perkins.

Above: Arriving on your doorstep in a red tin pot, a Holiday Lemon Cypress Cone Tree comes in two sizes (small and large) and is from $39 to $49 depending on size from Napa Style.
