realistic artificial christmas trees
About Balsam Hill™
Imagine Christmas morning as you and your family are gathered around your Balsam Hill™ Christmas tree. Children are giggling with excitement and happiness while the adults are sharing memories and laughing together, enjoying this special family time. You look at your tree, and although it has been decorated and displayed since Thanksgiving, it's the perfect shade of green, not a needle lies on the floor, and it looks so realistic that no one can believe that it is not a real tree. You smile and feel relaxed as you think about how easy it was to set up your tree, the welcome absence of sticky sap and needles throughout the house, and the stunning, realistic look that has brightened up the living room for over a month. This is the holiday experience we hope to provide year after year through our luxurious, lifelike Christmas trees.
At Balsam Hill™, we are committed to creating the best Christmas trees on the market. Our founder, Mac Harman, was inspired to start Balsam Hill by a family member who was allergic to live trees but wanted to create a festive atmosphere in his home during the holidays. When Mac's search for a lifelike artificial Christmas tree came up empty-handed, our mission was born to develop the most realistic and luxurious artificial trees. To accomplish this mission, our designers carefully craft our trees to mimic nature using site visits and cuttings from live trees as their guides.
“We founded Balsam Hill™ with the simple goal of creating the world's finest artisan Christmas Trees. We are humbled and honored to receive so many public accolades for our products; yet we are most appreciative of the praise from thousands of our customers. I hope Balsam Hill will also win your praise this holiday season.”
— Mac Harman,
Founder & CEO

About our Christmas Trees
Just how real are our trees? They are routinely used by set designers of popular TV shows and even have been known to fool one of America's most savvy TV hosts into commenting on air about the "live" trees on her set. They routinely grace the lobbies of fine hotels and embassies around the world, and are used in Macy's famous Santaland exhibit in New York City. Fine retailers rely on us throughout the spring and summer to provide gorgeous, lifelike trees as backdrops for their holiday photoshoots for their upcoming catalogs and advertisements. But don't take our word for it - we encourage you to listen to what Lester Holt and Ann Curry had to say about them on NBC's The Today Show. We have also been honored by the Good Housekeeping Research Institute whose expert panel named our BH Balsam Fir™ the "best overall" artificial Christmas tree. Most importantly, our customers express their satisfaction with the trees they have chosen to be a part of their annual holiday traditions.
Our full product line is available for purchase exclusively through our website. To experience the realism and craftsmanship of our trees firsthand, visit our Outlet or Balsam Hill Tree Lot at select specialty retailers during the holiday season. Or order a Branch Sample kit to preview our tree foliage from the comfort of your own home. The kit includes True Needle™ sample branches from each of our Signature Collection trees and many of the Traditional artificial trees in our Classic Collection.
At Balsam Hill™, we strive for excellence in all that we do. Whether it's developing product innovations such as our ultra-realistic True Needle™ branches and our unique Color+Clear™ or Candlelight™ LED lights, or providing our super-zoom photos so you can view your favorite trees in great detail before your purchase, our goal is for you to enjoy a picture perfect, hassle-free Christmas.
