Why choose an artificial Christmas tree?

For many families, there is no substitute for a real freshly-cut Christmas tree. The amazing piney smell and the fun you have while choosing one with your family is something special and a tradition that dates back to the 16th century.

But for those of us with busy lives or if you are allergic to real trees, an artificial Christmas tree could be the perfect solution for this year’s festivities!

Reasons to choose an artificial tree

  • easy to set up
  • they are hypoallergenic
  • unique colors and styles that are not found in nature
  • they don’t shed needles that make a mess of your house
  • natural trees can be a significant fire hazard
  • can be used year after year
  • safe for pets
  • they are available in all sizes (if space is at a premium in your house)

Types of artificial Christmas trees

Regular Artificial Christmas Trees – The most natural-looking tree. Delivered without lights or decorations so that you can add your own or leave it “as is” for a minimalist look.

Colored Artificial Christmas Trees – Colored trees are much funkier. Brightly colored trees are great for kids’ rooms and put a contemporary spin on your Christmas decor.

Pre-Lit Artificial Christmas Trees – Popular with busier folks, you don’t need to shop around for lights with these trees as they are already attached to the branches.

Pre-Decorated Artificial Christmas Trees – These trees are “ready to roll” out of the box. With wild berries, pine cones, and snow-frosted branches, there is no doubt that these gorgeous trees are the easiest choice for busy folks who still want the perfect tree.

Most artificial trees are created using PE (Polyethylene) material. They are usually made from molds of natural tree branches to make them look hyper-realistic. Others are made from PVC. While not looking quite as realistic, they are very popular with folks on a budget and first-time tree buyers.

Selecting the size of your artificial tree

First of all, decide where your new tree will go. Be sure to take measurements in advance and to ensure that there is enough room around it. As a rule of thumb, leave at least 2 feet of space between the top of the tree/star/fairy and your ceiling.

Sizes of artificial trees begin at a tabletop size and rise to about 12 ft. Trees usually come in 3 widths; full, slim, and pencil.
