What does "pre lit Christmas tree" mean?

A pre-lit artificial Christmas tree completes any holiday display. However, it can be tedious to manually string hundreds of lights, especially for a tall holiday centerpiece with a full profile. This tree type makes decorating easier, as it comes with pre-strung lights, giving you more time to arrange the ornaments.

Innovations like our exclusive Easy Plug® technology let you enjoy easier setup. This feature lets you stack the tree sections and connect a single plug to a wall socket to power the lights. It's also used in the pre-lit versions of our patented Flip Trees® for quicker tree assembly.

How many lights should an artificial Christmas tree have?

Experts suggest stringing 100 to 150 lights for every foot of a Christmas tree. That means a 7-ft. pre-lit Christmas tree looks best with 700 to 1,050 bulbs. Meanwhile, a 9-ft. pre-lit Christmas tree should have around 900 to 1,350. Of course, this depends on the look you want to achieve. Refer to our Christmas Tree Lights Guide for the recommended light count based on tree height and desired coverage.
