Christmas Tree Styles, Colors, & Other Considerations

Eliciting memories with a tree

Many people who grew up with a Christmas tree in their homes find that their ideal Christmas tree is the one that was displayed in their homes as children. However, if you are like most people, you likely cannot recall the tree variety of your youth. To help you, the Balsam Hill™ trees are divided into Collections that represent Christmas tree styles found in different U.S. geographies. If you lived on the East Coast or Midwest, consider an artificial Christmas tree from our Vermont Signature™ Collection, like our most popular Vermont White Spruce. If you lived in the West or South, the Aspen Christmas Collection might be the best for you. If you lived on the West Coast or Southwest, the Napa Christmas™ Collection likely has the Christmas tree from your childhood. No matter which tree you choose, with a Christmas tree from Balsam Hill™, you will be sure to have a luxurious, artisanal artificial Christmas tree that will be the backdrop for creating many new wonderful memories.

Finding the perfect color and look

If you have not yet narrowed down the ideal Christmas tree style for you, think about what Christmas tree color you prefer. If you want a beautifully white tree, the Balsam Hill Mount Washington White Christmas tree offers lifelike branches found in other Balsam Hill™ trees but designed in white. As for the green trees, in the end, any traditional artificial tree that you choose will look green. However, even among these greens, there are different color variations – do you prefer vibrant forest green (like the Fraser Fir), a more muted gray-green (like the BH Noble Fir™), or a deep blue-green (like the Aspen Estate Fir)? Ordering our helpful Branch Sample Kit or using our super zoom photos are excellent ways to preview the color and look of all of our trees.
