Artificial Christmas Trees with True Needles vs. Traditional Needles: What Sets Them Apart?
Traditional needles use PVC, while True Needle foliage features injection-molded PE plastic. This method is used for Balsam Hill’s premier products. The process mimics the precise structure, texture, and color of natural evergreen needles. A unique feature of True Needle foliage is the color variations within the branches. For example, a branch may be brown with green pigments. Then, the needles start off a dark green and slowly fade to a lighter shade. The technology creates exact replicas of popular Christmas tree varieties found in nature.
Why Choose an Artificial Christmas Tree with True Needle Technology?
Aside from its beauty, a lifelike Christmas tree is easy to maintain and lasts for years. Keep the tradition of majestic, decorated Christmas trees alive. You won’t need to worry about shedding needles and tree sap. There won’t be allergens from real trees and other greenery, too. The award-winning True Needle foliage makes the perfect canvas for your precious ornaments. Also, enjoy the superior quality, ease, and convenience of our artificial Christmas trees. Spend less time worrying about tree set-up and storage. This leaves you more moments to simply enjoy what the season is about: making memories with those you love most.
How Do I Decorate a Realistic Christmas Tree?
Make the perfect backdrop to your gatherings with a breathtaking holiday centerpiece. Let the lifelike foliage shine with these Christmas tree decorating tips.
- Leave sparse or flocked trees bare for a natural look. Keep your Christmas tree undecorated and allow the rustic beauty to take centerstage. Showcase the realistic foliage with minimal accents. Simply add an elegant tree skirt or topper. Our Alpine Balsam Fir is perfect for minimalist or Scandinavian-inspired decorating themes. It’s one of Balsam Hill’s best-selling sparse Christmas trees. It’s also available flocked for a snow-laden look and pre-lit for a subtle glow.
- Choose a pre-lit tree with color-changing lights. Watch jeweled lights bounce off the lifelike needles of your Christmas tree. Balsam Hill offers realistic Christmas trees pre-lit with our innovative Twinkly Light technology. Create spectacular customized light shows right on your mobile device. Delight your guests with a festive display.
- Follow a specific decorating theme for a professional look. Realistic foliage makes the perfect backdrop for exquisite décor. Make sure your tree ornaments and accessories all complement each other. Aim to create a harmonious visual spectacle. Get inspiration from Balsam Hill’s Tree Decorating Ideas. Likewise, shop our curated ornament sets. We also offer other exclusive picks sure to make your tree shine.
- Match your tree to your other holiday foliage. The same True Needle technology is seen in many of our artificial wreaths and garlands. Choose the same type of foliage for your greenery and echo your tree’s decorations for a cohesive look. For instance, match your BH Fraser Fir Christmas Tree with BH Fraser Fir Wreaths and Garlands.
An artificial tree with True Needle technology makes Christmas celebrations even more memorable. Order a Branch Sample Kit today to help you choose which foliage suits your style best. Check out our Resource Center for more expert guides and holiday decorating ideas.
