We have both a real and a fake tree (fake in the upper level bonus room, real in the main level living room). Most species used for Christmas trees are mildly irritating or toxic when ingested, so if you are worried about her eating shed needles, I would go the artificial route unless you are able to be hypervigilant with her around the tree. Neither of mine are destructive, nor do they eat non-food items, so we haven't had to put gates around our trees or buy table top trees.
