Which Christmas tree will last the longest?


Senior Member
A: "Which Christmas tree will last the longest?"
B: I guess the fir will last the longest.

Is that question natural so as to ask about the choice of the kind of a tree for a Christmas tree?

    "I've already decorated the Christmas tree and I hope it lasts (for) three weeks."

    And is that example natural? Can I say "last for"?

    Yes the question is OK. But 'Which kind of Christmas tree will last the longest?' Is clearer to express what you want to know. Your original question might refer to three trees of the same kind standing in a row.
