The True Needle™ Process

How we replicate nature with precision.
  1. Our founder studies and photographs trees in their natural environment. We refrigerate real branch specimens at our manufacturing facility and reference them in the development process.
  1. 3D branch prototypes are refined until they look just like nature. We use the final prototypes to make production molds and optimize each mold to remove the slightest imperfections.
  1. Branches are color-matched against real specimens, and then dipped, sprayed, and hand-painted to produce the true-to-nature look that defines True Needle foliage.

The Journey of a Balsam Hill Tree

Take a peek inside our exclusive process of creating highly realistic trees with our founder, Thomas Harman.

Choosing a Realism Level for Your Tree

Most Realistic
  • More than 70% True Needle (PE) foliage for outstanding realism.
  • Incredibly lifelike whether viewed from 30 feet or 3 inches away with Classic Needle (PVC) foliage used near the trunk to enhance fullness.
Realistic
  • A mix of True Needle (PE) and Classic Needle (PVC) foliage, balancing realism and budget.
  • True Needle branches compose the more visible exterior of the tree, while Classic Needles form a lush, full interior.
Traditional
  • Our most cost-effective trees with 100% Classic Needle (PVC) foliage.
  • Only top-quality Classic Needle for high needle density, reduced shedding, and rich color that won’t fade.

"The BH Fraser Fir is breathtakingly beautiful and realistic. I have gotten many compliments,
and find myself thinking, 'why did I wait so long.' Once you purchase one of Balsam Hill's
realistic trees, you won't settle for anything less."
Pgh Lew from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Owner of the BH Fraser Fir Tree

No Sweat Setup & Storage

Our exclusive Flip Tree is engineered for ultimate convenience.
Roll & Flip Setup
No more heavy lifting—just wheel the tree base
into place on a built-in rolling stand, flip it over,
and attach the smaller treetop.
Effortless Lighting
Easy Plug light strings connect through the trunk
so that the only plug you need to touch is the one
that goes into the wall.
Convenient Storage
Simply remove the treetop and flip the base back
over. Slip the included cover over the tree and roll
it into storage. Tree stores upright, saving space.

Flip Trees in Action

Watch how our exclusive Flip Tree transitions from storage to display in seconds.

Additional Easy Setup Options

Pre-fluffed Trees
Each tree is individually hand-shaped by
professionals prior to shipping. Strong memory wire
branches fan out as you set up, so fluffing takes less
time. All Pre-Fluffed trees come with Easy Plug.
Easy Plug Trees
Our innovative lighting system features pre-
connected light strands through the trunk, so the only
plug you need is the one that goes into the wall.
Included on all pre-lit Flip and Pre-Fluffed trees.

"After unpacking the tree, I flipped the base over and plugged it in. WOW! Even without any
fluffing this is one great looking tree. I added the top piece and there it was, our new tree."
Greg from Ottawa, Canada, Owner of the BH Balsam Fir Flip Tree
