Back in the day.. when we were growing up, we did just about the same as you did. We set it up and watered it every evening and soon as Christmas was over it came down and out to the trash.. stringing needles all the way, One Match and Pooff nothing but a brunt stick in a matter of seconds.
Now we have a small Plastic fake tree that has lights attached and it sits in the basement with a plastic bag over it. When it's time, I yank the plastic and set it on the table. Done.
