    The True Needle™ Process

    How we replicate nature with precision.
     
    1. 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.
     
    1. 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.
     
    1. 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.

    The Journey of a Balsam Hill Tree

    Take a peek inside our exclusive process of creating highly realistic trees with our founder, Thomas Harman.
     

    Choosing a Realism Level for Your Tree

     
    Most Realistic
    • More than 65% True Needle (PE) foliage for outstanding realism.
    • Incredibly lifelike whether viewed from 30 feet or 3 inches away with Classic Needle (PVC) foliage used near the trunk to enhance fullness.
     
    Realistic
    • A mix of True Needle (PE) and Classic Needle (PVC) foliage, balancing realism and budget.
    • True Needle branches compose the more visible exterior of the tree, while Classic Needles form a lush, full interior.
     
    Traditional
    • Our most cost-effective trees with 100% Classic Needle (PVC) foliage.
    • Only top-quality Classic Needle for high needle density, reduced shedding, and rich color that won’t fade.

    "The BH Fraser Fir is breathtakingly beautiful and realistic. I have gotten many compliments,
    and find myself thinking, 'why did I wait so long.' Once you purchase one of Balsam Hill's
    realistic trees, you won't settle for anything less."
    Pgh Lew from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Owner of the BH Fraser Fir Tree

    time. All Pre-Fluffed trees come with Easy Plug.
     
    Easy Plug Trees
    Our innovative lighting system features pre-
    connected light strands through the trunk, so the only
    plug you need is the one that goes into the wall.
    Included on all pre-lit Flip and Pre-Fluffed trees.

    "After unpacking the tree, I flipped the base over and plugged it in. WOW! Even without any
    fluffing this is one great looking tree. I added the top piece and there it was, our new tree."
    Greg from Ottawa, Canada, Owner of the BH Balsam Fir Flip Tree

    Balsam Hill is home of the most realistic artificial Christmas trees and seasonal home décor. – The Doctors

     

    Balsam Hill’s mission is to create beautifully crafted artificial Christmas trees to make your holidays picture-perfect. Our lifelike trees are inspired by nature and designed for convenience and longevity. We’re committed to offering the best artificial Christmas trees that suit your style and space with various foliage types, sizes, shapes, and setup options.

    Faux Trees Inspired by Nature

    Balsam Hill artificial Christmas trees are composed of two main types of needles: PE (polyethylene) and PVC (polyvinyl chloride). Our exclusive True Needle™ foliage is modeled after real evergreen tree branches. They’re made from injection-molded PE designed to replicate the structure, texture, and color variations of natural branches. Classic Needle foliage is made from flat PVC strips traditionally used for most artificial Christmas trees in the market.

    Balsam Hill Christmas trees are offered in three levels of realism. Our Most Realistic Christmas Trees are made up of at least 65% True Needle foliage for outstanding realism. Our Realistic Christmas Trees are made with a combination of True Needle and Classic Needle foliage for realism and fullness. Our cost-effective Traditional Christmas trees are made with mostly Classic Needles and the same Balsam Hill quality.

    Decorate Every Room, Big or Small

    Balsam Hill trees come in varied sizes to bring holiday cheer to any space. Christmas trees 4.5 to 5.5 feet high are suitable for rooms with limited space. They can be easily placed on a table or countertop. 6 to 6.5 feet-high Christmas trees are ideal for homes and areas with low to standard-height ceilings. 7 to 7.5 feet-high trees are a popular choice and are considered the best Christmas tree for your living room and foyer with the standard 8-feet ceiling height.

    Christmas trees 8 to 9 feet tall look great when displayed in rooms with high ceilings and areas with a lot of vertical space. 10 to 14 feet-tall trees are ideal for vaulted ceilings and large spaces such as halls and ballrooms. Oversized Christmas trees 15 to 30 feet tall create spectacular holiday displays at open areas such as shopping centers, squares, and parks.

    Light Up Your Tree Beautifully

    Balsam Hill artificial Christmas trees are available pre-lit for a hassle-free set up, and unlit if you prefer to string your own lights. Our pre-lit trees come with hand-strung lights that are evenly distributed and professionally arranged. Enjoy the warm, candle-like glow of Clear lights or festive Multicolored lights with our Color+Clear technology. Our pre-lit trees come with energy-saving LEDs or traditional lights which are designed to last—if one bulb burns out or is removed, the rest stay lit.

    Shapes to Suit Your Style and Space

    Balsam Hill trees come in various shapes and sizes. A Full tree is considered the best Christmas tree shape because its classic silhouette suits most decorating themes. Narrow trees offer the look of a full tree with a slimmer silhouette, ideal for smaller rooms. Dress up tight corners without sacrificing tree height with Slim trees. Our Flatback tree is a creative solution for limited spaces. Its flat side rests against the wall to create an illusion of a full tree while taking up a fraction of the space. Sparse trees, on the other hand, lets you enjoy nature’s raw beauty with its organic silhouettes and lifelike branches.

    Set Up with Ease

    Enjoy the convenience of Balsam Hill’s Easy Setup Trees. To avoid the need for heavy lifting, our innovative Flip Tree™ is the best Christmas tree of choice. Just roll the base into place, flip it, attach the treetop, and you’re all set. Reduce setup time with Pre-fluffed™ Trees which are designed with memory wire branches that fan out upon unboxing. Meanwhile, our patented Easy Plug™ tree comes with pre-made light connections inside the trunk which makes lighting it as simple as plugging it into a wall socket.
