its not tree worship…
christmas tree has origins in 18th or 19th century germany as far as  i know.
where i live some people still dont have any christmas trees, or just tiny ones as decoration for window.

Yeah modern form of that tree has origins in around 18th century Alsatia as i once read. We Slavs didn't have that tradition at all and as i recall nobody prays to the Christmas tree. ;D

On the other hand Božični Venček has older origin but seriously we cant make many conclusions. All that is pagan in Christmas is name and date since nobody knew when Jesus was born people started to celebrate his birth on most important day of the year for agriculturalists societies since day begins to be longer around that period which was a sign winter is going to an end.
