Get to the festivities faster with a Balsam Hill quick-set Christmas tree. Our exclusive, patented Flip Trees® are designed with innovative features for the utmost convenience and realism. Read on to learn more about Flip Trees®, including how to assemble and store them for the off-season.

What is a Flip Tree®?

The Balsam Hill Flip Tree® is a thoughtfully designed tree that makes setup simple and efficient. Inventor Bruce Schooley designed the concept to address the challenges of lifting, assembling, and storing heavy artificial Christmas trees. The patented technology streamlines the process so that the only section you need to carry is the lightweight treetop.

What Makes the Flip Tree® Different?

Aside from realism and convenience, here are other features that make Balsam Hill Flip Trees® one-of-a-kind.

  • Fewer pieces involved

    With only two main parts, these are easy Christmas trees to assemble. You only need to flip the base and attach the treetop, then shape the branches and decorate away.

  • Various lighting options

    Available in a range of light options, our pre-lit Flip trees also come with Easy Plug setup wherein the light strings are connected within the trunk. Simply plug in the tree to an outlet to turn on the lights.

  • Built-in rolling stand

    The rolling metal stand has lockable 360-degree wheels, so you can just roll the tree in and out of the room with minimal effort.

  • Comes together in minutes

    Our quick-set Christmas trees are easy to put up and take down. This leaves more time for decorating and enjoying the holidays with loved ones.

Follow these steps to assemble your Balsam Hill Flip Trees®.
