Bring home the wonder and joy of the season
with a tree so realistic it’s magical.
Inspired by Nature
Our exclusive True Needle™ foliage is modeled after
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.

Make your holiday celebrations more meaningful with Balsam Hill’s true-to-nature artificial Christmas trees. We design our Christmas trees with thoughtful details, prioritizing convenience and longevity for a holiday centerpiece you can enjoy season after season. We’re committed to providing you with the best artificial Christmas trees that suit your style and space with various foliage types, sizes, shapes, and setup options.
Real vs. Artificial Christmas Trees: Which is Better?
While many love the natural beauty of real Christmas trees, artificial Christmas trees have gained much popularity in recent years. This is because today’s best Christmas trees have become more realistic and easier to set up than ever before. Here are some benefits of artificial Christmas trees:
Real Christmas trees require cutting, mounting, watering, and cleaning up of fallen needles. Meanwhile, artificial Christmas trees present the opposite. Balsam Hill artificial Christmas trees offer you the convenience of an easier setup and upkeep, as you and your family enjoy a beautiful tree all season.
A real Christmas tree may cause allergies to some, and its dried needles are also prone to catch fire from open flames or damaged electrical lights. Artificial Christmas trees from Balsam Hill are made with synthetic materials that are non-allergenic and flame-retardant. This ensures that you’ll have a safe and worry-free holiday display for everyone to delight in.
Local tree lots only carry certain Christmas tree species native to their specific region. As the holidays draw near, the most popular types can run out fast. The beauty of Balsam Hill artificial Christmas trees is that they’re designed after real evergreen species found in different parts of the world. This allows you to decorate with the Christmas tree of your choice no matter where you are, whenever you wish.
While real Christmas trees initially cost less than artificial ones, investing in an artificial Christmas tree will save you more money in the long run. As prices of real trees increase through the years, getting an artificial Christmas tree is the more practical choice with benefits you can take advantage of for years to come.
Which is the Most Realistic Artificial Christmas Tree?
Balsam Hill’s Most Realistic Christmas Trees are those that closely resemble fir, spruce, or pine tree species found in nature. We craft our most realistic trees with at least 65% of our patented True Needle foliage for utmost realism. This technology involves injection-molded needles designed to mimic the structure, texture, and color variations of real tree branches.
The BH Fraser Fir® is our most realistic Christmas tree to date. It features 40 different tip variations, which is the most we’ve ever created for any of our trees. From its five-split forked tips, rich green needles with silver undersides, full silhouette, and organic treetop, we’ve made every effort to make it look and feel like the real thing.
Some of our most realistic Christmas trees include the Aspen Estate Fir™ which features a lush profile and downswept silhouette; the Calistoga Ornament Tree™ which has a distinct, sparse and tiered profile to prominently display your ornaments; and our well-loved BH Balsam Fir™ which features a full, teardrop shape and upward-sloping branches.
