A modern day convenience is the artificial tree, or what some call fake trees. No more messy needles, sap, or spilled water. Christmas trees are a nearly universal element in holiday decorating. Some people don’t like the fuss and mess of a live tree, while others have allergies that preclude them from having a real evergreen. We have a wide choice of Artificial Christmas Trees in a variety of sizes and price brackets to suit every pocket, but how do you choose your ideal tree?


Our article on PE/PVC Artificial Christmas Trees offers some advice on choosing the right size tree for your home and also explains the difference between PVC & PE trees.  A small fake tree is a great tabletop choice to display a themed set of decorations or to complete a room’s color scheme, in addition to a full-size live evergreen. A miniature real evergreen can be used in a room where there isn’t lots of space, such as the kitchen, for added fragrance.

If you don’t care for the mess of a real evergreen, or if allergies prevent you from having a live tree, try choosing an artificial tree for your holiday decorating. This article will try to point out the features of the trees that we have on offer to help you compare these trees & make your final decision. If you choose an Artificial Christmas Tree, consider the size, accent, and height. Use these ideas as a guide when purchasing your fake trees for the holidays.


Pre-lit Artificial Tree or not?

A prelit tree is a convergent product of Christmas lights and Artificial Christmas tree. The product is an artificial fir tree that comes pre-wired and strung with lights, which cannot be removed and are usually embedded within the artificial branches. The product can be sold as a kit – the user assembles the tree and plugs it into an electrical outlet – or the dealer may assemble it before the sale. Prelit trees may have traditional mini bulb lights, LED lights, or fiber-optic lights. Larger trees usually contain traditional strands of bulb lights while smaller tabletop trees have fiber optic branches. Some more expensive trees come with energy-efficient LED lights. Prelit trees are being classified into the categories of electrical products.

PVC or PE/PVC Mix?

This comes down to personal preference and price. In general the PVC trees are darker green in colour than the PE/PVC mixed trees unless they are ‘snowy’. Another popular tree choice is the PE (polyethylene) trees.  The PE trees give you the look of a realistic, fresh cut tree without all the mess. It is made out of a mold process instead of a cut and spin method that the traditional artificial trees use. The PVC adds extra interest by introducing a different texture & helps to give depth to the tree whilst concealing the central stem. Many of the trees also have their branches hand wrapped with green/brown cotton for a touch of luxury.

The general life expectancy of a fake tree is about 10 years, and some may come with a warranty. Stands are usually included; plastic versions may be less stable than those made of metal. Some fake trees also include additional accessories such as a storage bag. Your fake tree should also be fire retardant and fade resistant.

Balsam Hill-designrulz (3)

From tip to stand, we’ve specially designed this tree to handle the demands of Mother Nature. Inspired by one of our designers who spent winters in the Allegheny Mountains, we built this tree to last in all of winter’s elements. For starters, the branches of the Allegheny Evergreen are fabricated from heavy gauge wire designed to withstand wind and snow, and the needles are UV-coated to resist the fading effects of the sun. In addition, we feature long-lasting LED C-5 lights to give that added resilience and require virtually no maintenance.
