Customers Love the Fifth Avenue Flatback

  • This is the BEST tree I ever had.

    We use this tree in our living room and now find we have much more room for our famly to gather. The tree fits perfectly in a corner and there is ample room under the tree for presents.

    —Kathy the Chef from Long Island, New York

  • Life Like

    As fans of real trees, my family is very impressed by how life like the tree appears. I still believe this is the best quality 1/2 tree we can find and at a reasonable price.

    —Mydanesrock from Alberta, Canada

  • The Perfect Tree

    Best Tree I have ever owned. Very compact but looks just a large as a normal 7 foot tree with out taking all the space in a room.

    —Gene from Sterling Heights, MI

  • Love this

    We and all our guests are all very impressed. You would never know that it's just half a tree. Especially when it's dark out and the tree lights are on, it totally looks like a full tree!

    —SooJin from Cambridge, MA

  • I was Amazed!

    It was quick to assemble and the branches are the more life-like than any of the trees we have seen in high-end stores. Thank you for making our transition to re-usable trees as painless as possible.

    —Lorraine from Toronto

A premium tree for premium space

Befitting an upscale New York studio or an exclusive San Francisco loft, our new Fifth Avenue Flatback is the perfect solution for those who are short on space but seek the highest quality design. Designed for smaller apartments, hallways, entries, or commercial spaces, this innovative and gorgeous tree allows you to display what appears to be a full tree - but takes up half the floor space.

Incorporating the same trick found on Hollywood studios for movie and TV sets, this unique tree is a full 50" wide but has a flat back which rests against the wall and features lush foliage that comes out no more than 25". In fact, Balsam Hill™ flatback trees are used in the world famous Macy's Santaland in New York City to create a winter wonderland for its bedazzled visitors.

Our Fifth Avenue Flatback Tree was crafted to be even more beautiful and realistic than our bestselling flatback tree from years past. Featuring our exclusive premium True Needle™ tips, this beautiful tree is incredibly realistic. Each branch is designed to look natural from the beautiful natural green needles down to the light brown stems. The varied, in-and-out branches of the Fifth Avenue Flatback are beautiful alone or for displaying your cherished ornaments.

The Fifth Avenue Flatback Tree is designed to be convenient for off-season storage as well. It takes up much less space than a traditional tree and is designed with ultra-light construction (the full tree is less than 30 lbs.) so that it can be hoisted into the rafters of even the smallest apartment storage closet.

Pre-lit with clear or multicolor lights, the Fifth Avenue Flatback is sure to be the sparkling beauty of your holiday festivities.
