The Best Tree on the Market
We shopped around and found them to be the best of the best in every area...price, functions, ease of storage, looks. You name it...Balsam Hill has this down to a perfected science.
—Brian J. Kvederas & Family from Bridgewater, New Jersey
One thing I love about Balsam Hill and that I would recommend to others is that they offer so many selections that can duplicate native tree in your part of the country--Fraser Fir for the South, Redwood for the West, etc.
—Elizabeth from Charlotte, NC
Do Not Hesitate to Purchase
I have had this tree for at least 4 years. Every year the tree amazes me. The lights, color & clear continue to light up year after year.

Winner - Good Housekeeping "Best Overall"
The BH Balsam Fir™ was named "Best Overall" by Good Housekeeping Magazine in an article on artificial Christmas trees. Tested by the Good Housekeeping Research Institute, the BH Balsam Fir received high praise for its color, natural-looking branches, and extra features. All of the pre-lit models of the BH Balsam Fir have also been updated with our cutting-edge Easy Plug™ setup — an innovative feature that automatically connects light strings through the trunk of the tree to ensure effortless setup. With its unsurpassed convenience and realism, our BH Balsam Fir is truly in a class all its own.
The beloved Balsam Fir™ is one of the most common tree species in North America, and its hardy nature allows it to thrive from the mountains of Virginia through the Northeast and all the way into the Arctic Circle. Known for its attractive shape and its sticky resin, the Balsam Fir is one of the three most popular Christmas trees of all time. Our signature BH Balsam Fir models nature's Abies balsamea right down to the detail of its dense needles (though we left out the sticky resin!).
Since the Balsam Fir™ is our namesake tree, we asked our designers to go overboard to create the finest replica of Abies balsamea possible. They started with its distinct needles and semi-flat branch tips, using cuttings from nature to guide the mold making process for our BH Balsam Fir's special True Needle™ branches. The brown-tinged stems lend a touch of warmth to the natural green color of the tips, creating a pleasant realistic hue to complement any Christmas decor.

Our designers then focused on the shape and branch structure of cultivated Balsam Firs to mimic the exact look of the popular tree so many of us grew up with each Christmas. The result is a beautifully shaped tree, from its beveled base to its layered top, highlighted by sturdy, upward-sloping tree branches that are just like its cultivated cousins.
Our special touch to improve on nature is to add your choice of our clear lights, our amazing Candlelight™ LED lights, or our signature Color+Clear™ lights, which allow you to adorn your tree with clear, multicolor, or clear and multicolor lights all at the touch of a button. Most of all though, the BH Balsam Fir's lifelike quality is so compelling your friends will be convinced you have a real tree underneath your treasured ornaments and other Christmas trimmings.
Whether you grew up celebrating your Christmases past with a Balsam Fir, or if you just want to bring home a gorgeous classic, we are sure you will love the craftsmanship, quality, and style of our incomparable BH Balsam Fir™. Add one to your home today, and you'll have a treasured centerpiece for many years to come.

Shaping your Tree
The first time you assemble and shape your tree will require the most shaping to give the tree its full lush appearance. learn more »
1. With each branch, separate out the individual tips and angle them out and away from the center of the tree.
2.Angle the tips furthest back on the branch and sideways out from the branch to resemble a peacock's fanned tail when shaped.
3.Shape the branches vertically upward as much as possible to give the tree its full appearance. Enjoy your Balsam Hill™ tree!
Storing your Tree
To minimize the need for fluffing in future years, you can compress the branches less and store all or parts of your tree in the original box or a PREMIUM STORAGE BAG from Balsam Hill™.
1. Remove all ornaments. Check that the tree is unplugged and the wires are not twisted or tangled to avoid damage while in storage.
2.With the tree still standing, un-fluff the branches and detach each section of the tree.
3.Secure the compressed sections with a cord or ribbon before placing them in the provided storage bag. Store your tree in a cool, dry location.
