What Are the Best Artificial Christmas Trees?

Balsam Hill offers a wide range of lifelike artificial Christmas trees across different price points. All our trees feature thoughtful design and quality craftsmanship. Read on to see what sets Balsam Hill artificial Christmas trees apart.

  • A Variety of Tree Species

    We draw from both nature and nostalgia when designing our Christmas trees. From spruce and pine to our namesake Balsam Fir, many of our affordable Christmas trees are modeled after the most popular tree species sure to evoke fond memories of Christmases past.

  • Realism

    We categorize our trees based on their level of realism. Our affordable realistic Christmas trees under $499 use a combination of True Needle™ PE needles and classic PVC needles to strike a balance between realism and cost. Meanwhile, our Most Realistic Christmas Trees feature a higher concentration of True Needle foliage for the most lifelike effect. Our Traditional Trees are 100% classic PVC needles, providing the most affordable option.

  • Easy Set-Up

    Balsam Hill believes Christmas tree assembly and decoration should be easy and stress-free. Many of our affordable Christmas trees offer these features:

    • Pre-Fluffed foliage – Tree branches are hand-shaped with memory wire to reduce set-up time. Your Christmas tree will only require minimal fluffing out of the box before it’s ready to be decorated and displayed.

    • Easy Plug technology – Light connections on pre-lit trees are hidden within the tree trunk, so all you need is one plug to light up your tree. We carry various lighting options, from classic incandescent lights to color-changing bulbs.

How Do I Choose a Christmas Tree for My Home?

Take the following factors into consideration when selecting the perfect tree.

  • Tree Size

    Account for ceiling clearance when calculating the tree’s height. There should be at least 12 inches of allowance from the top of the tree to the ceiling. As for the tree’s shape, choose slim or flatback trees for narrower spaces or tight corners. Full trees are best for more expansive areas or if you have a plenty or ornaments you’d like to display.

  • Unlit vs Pre-Lit

    Unlit trees offer a lot of room to create your own light display, while pre-lit trees remove the guesswork out of stringing lights.

  • Price

    Always aim for good value for money regardless of your budget. A Balsam Hill artificial Christmas tree is an investment piece that can delight your family season after season.
