At Balsam Hill we take great pride in the craftsmanship of each of our products. While we strive to provide the best quality products available, occasionally a product will arrive with a lighting or foliage issue. Upon receipt, please inspect your purchase and notify us of any damage by contacting Customer Service 888-552-2572 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our team is happy to evaluate the issue and provide assistance in resolving it as quickly as possible.
If we are made aware of the specific issue within 10 days of purchase, we will make arrangements for our Parts Replacement Department to ship a replacement of any damaged or malfunctioning part within 5 business days* of identification of the issue. The replacement part(s) will be shipped using the same method as your original order. You can upgrade your shipping method for an additional fee. In the event we are not able to supply a replacement part, we will make arrangements for an exchange, a full refund or a mutually agreeable alternate resolution.
If you discover an issue with your purchase within the first 30 days of purchase under normal usage conditions, please contact us. For lighting issues, we have most styles of light strands available for immediate shipment and sections can be restrung using our easy to follow video. For foliage issues and other lighting issues we will send a replacement of any damaged or malfunctioning part within 10 business days* of identification of the issue as long as the part is available in our inventory. The replacement part will be shipped using the same method as your original order. You can upgrade your shipping method for an additional fee. In the event we are not able to supply a replacement part, we will find an alternate resolution and have the part manufactured in the offseason.
If your product is no longer available for sale on our website, the parts will likely have to be manufactured.

We are pleased to offer an extended warranty on our artificial Christmas trees, wreaths and garlands in our Signature and Classic collections. If you have any questions or problems with your tree or foliage please first refer to our Assembly, Use, and Care Instructions, which is included with your product and can be accessed online. This convenient guide answers many common questions regarding tree set up, and lighting.

Warranty Review and Pre-Authorization
Balsam Hill requests that you be prepared to troubleshoot the problem with our customer service team as well as submit pictures and/or video to the warranty department to illustrate the issue requiring warranty review. Photos should be well-focused and clearly illustrate the issue/defect. Balsam Hill reserves the right to repair or replace any part(s) serviced under warranty.
All repair service must be pre-authorized by our customer service department. Balsam Hill cannot repair or replace products without pre-authorization.
Our goal is to service your product under warranty as soon as possible, however our items are handmade and the time needed to repair or manufacture a replacement may vary during the year. In most cases, if your product is no longer available for sale on our website, the parts will have to be manufactured. In the unlikely event we need to replace your entire product, it will be replaced with a product of your choice of equal or lesser value paid.
Exclusions from Warranty
Our foliage and light warranties exclude burned out bulbs and normal wear and tear. Our warranties are non-transferable and applies to the original purchaser of the product. Our warranties become void if the item is damaged due to misuse or neglect, is intentionally altered or is used outside of the United States, Canada or Puerto Rico. We do not have warranties on accessory products including ornaments, tree skirts, rolling tree stands, and other décor. Please check the product page for product specific warranty details.
If you choose to return your tree rather than participate in our Premium Guarantee and Warranty, it will be treated as a standard return. Please review our Return Policy for additional details.
