Use a really good, heavy stand.

Tie the tree securely to a wall.

Use unbreakable ornaments, at least on the lower portion of the tree. This might not be the prettiest try you've ever had! :-)

I wouldn't try to keep her away the tree. I would actually involve her as much as possible in choosing the tree, putting the tree up, stabilizing and securing the tree, putting the lights on, decorating, watering, etc. If she gets lots of safe and appropriate contact with the tree it will be less of a temptation because it will become a familiar object, and she can start learning how to act around a Christmas tree.
