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.

Balsam Hill is home of the most realistic artificial Christmas trees and seasonal home décor. – The Doctors
A Balsam Hill artificial Christmas tree brings all the holiday cheer of a live tree to your home without the hassle or messes that come with them. With our hinged branches and lightweight, collapsible stands, setup is simple. Your Christmas tree will be ready to decorate in no time! We also offer both prelit and unlit options, so you can choose to whether you prefer the convenience of never having to set up lights or keep the option to change what type of lights you use from year to year.
Balsam Hill’s unparalleled artificial trees come in three levels of realism to suit different preferences and budgets:
- Our most realistic trees are from our exclusive True Needle collection. These are created branch by branch using molds of live branches to meticulously copy every detail of mother nature’s best Christmas trees in bi-colored polyurethane plastic.
- Our traditional artificial Christmas trees are made from durable PVC which is pressed into a thin paper-like material. Strips of this are expertly twisted into each wire branch, giving the tree a full and fluffy look that harkens back to the trees of Christmases past.
- Our realistic Christmas trees offer the perfect blend of the more realistic style and a full traditional look. These feature some of the same mold injected branches, but with additional PVC branches filling out the spaces between to give the tree a more robust silhouette.
In addition to different materials and levels of realism, Balsam Hill offers four Signature artificial Christmas tree collections, including Aspen Christmas Signature, Vermont Signature, Napa Christmas Signature, and Smoky Mountain Christmas Signature. All 12 foot and under Christmas trees in these collections even come with our 3-year limited warranty. So, you can rest assured that your Balsam Hill artificial Christmas tree will look flawless all season long, and for years to come!
