real evergreen branches to beautifully replicate
The True Needle™ Process
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.

Balsam Hill is home of the most realistic artificial Christmas trees and seasonal home décor. – The Doctors
Balsam Hill’s mission is to create beautifully crafted artificial Christmas trees to make your celebrations picture-perfect. Our lifelike trees are inspired by nature and designed for convenience and longevity. We’re committed to offering the best artificial Christmas trees that suit your style and space with various foliage types, sizes, shapes, and setup options.
Faux Trees Inspired by Nature
Balsam Hill Christmas trees are composed of two main types of needles: PE (polyethylene) and PVC (polyvinyl chloride). Our exclusive True Needle™ foliage is modeled after real evergreen tree branches. They’re made from injection-molded PE designed to replicate the structure, texture, and color variations of natural branches. Classic Needle foliage is made from flat PVC strips traditionally used for most artificial Christmas trees in the market.
Balsam Hill Christmas trees are offered in three levels of realism. Our Most Realistic Christmas Trees are made up of at least 65% True Needle foliage for outstanding realism. Our Realistic Christmas Trees are made with a combination of True Needle and Classic Needle foliage for realism and fullness. Our cost-effective Traditional Christmas trees are made with mostly Classic Needles and the same Balsam Hill quality.
Decorate Every Room, Big or Small
Balsam Hill trees come in varied sizes to bring holiday cheer to any space. Christmas trees 4.5 to 5.5 feet high are suitable for rooms with limited space. They can be easily placed on a table or countertop. 6 to 6.5 feet-high Christmas trees are ideal for homes and areas with low- to standard-height ceilings. 7 to 7.5 feet-high trees are a popular choice and are considered the best Christmas tree for your living room and foyer with the standard 8-feet ceiling height.
Christmas trees 8 to 9 feet tall look great when displayed in rooms with high ceilings and areas with a lot of vertical space. 10 to 14 feet-tall trees are ideal for vaulted ceilings and large spaces such as halls and ballrooms.
Light Up Your Tree Beautifully
Balsam Hill Christmas trees are available pre-lit for a hassle-free set up, and unlit if you prefer to string your own lights. Our pre-lit trees come with hand-strung lights that are evenly distributed and professionally arranged. Enjoy the warm, candle-like glow of Clear lights or festive Multicolored lights, or both with our Color+Clear™ technology. Our pre-lit trees come with energy-saving LEDs or traditional lights which are designed to last—if one bulb burns out or is removed, the rest stay lit.
Create a uniquely vibrant holiday backdrop with Twinkly™ Christmas tree lights, which allow you to control a variety of pre-set options or map out your lights’ color and speed from your mobile device. Delight your family and guests with our Fiber Optic Christmas tree lights, which allow you to customize the effects, color, and speed from 23 different modes at a touch of a button.
Shapes to Suit Your Style and Space
Balsam Hill trees come in various shapes and sizes. A Full tree is considered the best artificial Christmas tree shape because its classic silhouette suits most decorating themes. Narrow trees offer the look of a full tree with a slimmer silhouette, ideal for smaller rooms. Dress up tight corners without sacrificing tree height with Slim trees. Our Flatback tree is a creative solution for limited spaces. Its flat side rests against the wall to create an illusion of a full tree while taking up a fraction of the space. Sparse trees, on the other hand, lets you enjoy nature’s raw beauty with its organic silhouettes and lifelike branches.
Set Up with Ease
Enjoy the convenience of Balsam Hill’s Easy Setup Trees. To avoid the need for heavy lifting, our innovative Flip Tree™ is the best Balsam Hill Christmas tree of choice. Just roll the base into place, flip it, attach the treetop, and you’re all set. Reduce setup time with Pre-fluffed™ Trees which are designed with memory wire branches that fan out upon unboxing. Meanwhile, our patented Easy Plug™ tree comes with pre-made light connections inside the trunk which makes lighting it as simple as plugging it into a wall socket.
