Nothing brings more holiday cheer to your place of business than a beautifully decorated Christmas tree. Balsam Hill offers a wide range of artificial Christmas trees to fit any space and style – from the reception area of a local office to an expansive hotel lobby. In this guide, we share expert tips on how to choose the perfect tree for your business and create joy for your guests, customers, and employees this holiday season.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT SIZE & SHAPE
Height and profile play a crucial role in determining the correct fit for the space. Consider ceiling height as well as foot traffic when deciding which commercial Christmas trees to install.
CHRISTMAS TREE HEIGHT GUIDE
We recommend leaving at least 6 inches between the ceiling and the top of the tree, including tree toppers or decorative accents that add to the tree’s height. If the space has 14-foot ceilings and you plan to use a 12-inch tree topper, you should purchase a 12-foot Christmas tree. Balsam Hill trees are measured from the bottom of the stand to the topmost tip.
Under 6 feetMiniature trees for tabletops, bedrooms, kid’s rooms, and small spaces

CHRISTMAS TREE SHAPES
The shape of the tree determines how much space is required. Full and wide trees are great for spacious areas such as lobbies and ballrooms, while slim and sparse trees are ideal for corners and more constrained spaces. Measure your set-up location and compare it to the tree dimensions provided on our website. Our measurements are based on the widest point of the tree when fully fluffed.

BH BALSAM FIR®
Our namesake tree and a long-time customer favorite, the BH Balsam Fir is designed after real balsam firs grown in Maine. The tree features a gorgeous teardrop shape and semi-flat needles, just like its natural counterpart. Choose the Candlelight LED option for that classic look or the Color+Clear if you’d like your guests to enjoy a more colorful light display.
BH FRASER FIR®
The BH Fraser Fir is molded from 40 different tip variations, making it our most realistic tree to date. It features dark green needles with silver undersides, along with an organically shaped treetop to accurately mimic the color and natural profile of farm-grown Fraser firs.
Inspired by the historic Silverado Trail, our Silverado Slim features a slender profile with natural-green foliage. This tree is ideal for smaller spaces without sacrificing the height and comes in several LED light options.
ALPINE BALSAM FIR®
Sparse by design, our Alpine Balsam Fir features open spaces between branches for showcasing treasured ornaments. The foliage is painted with light-green tips to complement its organic shape and visible faux trunk. Hand-shaped by experts, the tree also features Pre-Fluffed® memory wire branches that fan into place upon unboxing for reduced set-up time.
CLASSIC BLUE SPRUCE
Our Classic Blue Spruce is crafted with 100% Classic Needle foliage and features a full profile for that classic Christmas tree look. The needles are painted in blue-green and silvery hues, complemented by light brown tinted stems. Available in several height and lighting options.
Here are some other considerations when planning to decorate your business space for the holidays.
Christmas decorating takes thoughtful planning, especially when done on a larger scale. Businesses usually purchase their trees and decorations earlier in the year. By planning ahead, your team can avoid becoming stressed or overwhelmed during one of the busiest times of the year.
Consider the style and color of the space you’ll be decorating. Plan to purchase ornaments and decorations that complement the color palette and style of the room or building so that everything looks cohesive. Some of our popular themes include NORDIC FROST, BURNISHED METALS, and BRILLIANT BORDEAUX.
If you’re decorating al fresco areas, make sure to use GREENERY and other DECORATIONS specifically made for outdoor use. These are made with a UV-resistant finish to protect them from sun and weather damage.
ASSEMBLY & STORAGE
Larger Christmas trees might require special equipment to assemble and decorate. Plan for ladders or lifts and additional manpower, if needed. At the end of the season, protect your investment by storing your Balsam Hill trees, ornaments, and greenery in heavy-duty STORAGE BAGS. Our storage solutions are specially designed to keep your Christmas decorations safe from dust, pests, and damage while stowed away.
