Exclusive to Balsam Hill™, True Needle™ technology allows Balsam Hill to offer the most realistic Christmas trees on the market. True Needle evergreen foliage is created with injection-molded PE plastic and several different colors of pigment to mimic the structure, texture and color of natural evergreen needles. It is simply the best method for creating lifelike artificial evergreen branch needles. A unique feature of True Needle foliage is the color variations within the branches. For example, the branch might be a brown/green while the needles start off a dark green and slowly fade to a lighter green.
