Artificial Trees Buying Guide

Some homeowners prefer them for the lack of mess, while others like them because of the absence of allergy concerns. If you prefer artificial trees at Christmastime, you'll be rewarded. The newest artificial trees are designed to last longer, look more realistic, and meet various size needs. Read on for key differences in artificial trees.

Types of Artificial Trees

Types of Artificial Trees

The type of artificial tree you prefer depends on your holiday decorating preferences as well as how much it matters to you that the tree resembles the real thing. For homeowners who prefer a more realistic look, there are natural-looking versions; the type of material used to make an artificial tree will affect how it looks. Artificial trees also come unlit or pre-lit, as well as flocked or accented, which can add an unexpected touch to holiday decorating. Here are the types of artificial trees to consider.

Pre-lit vs. Unlit

Artificial trees may be unlit or strung with pre-attached lights that are either white or multicolor. Pre-lit trees tend to be more expensive; those with a "continuous on" feature will stay lit even if one bulb burns out.

Natural

Many artificial trees resemble real ones in appearance, with evergreenlike branches and coloring. These allow homeowners to accent the tree any way they see fit.

Flocked or Accented

Flocked or accented artificial trees appear to be dusted, to varying degrees, with snow or glitter. Additional accents may include pinecones or berries that are permanently affixed.

Material

All artificial trees are made from PVC or PE plastic. The needles on PVC artificial trees are attached with wires, while PE trees better resemble real-tree needles and branches. In addition, the center pole of an artificial tree is either plastic or metal.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

From tabletop to centerpiece of a room, an artificial tree can accent a variety of spaces and lend itself to virtually every decorating scheme. However, before you purchase an artificial tree, it's important to review certain purchase considerations to enhance your enjoyment. Those include the tree's height and width; its branch type; the price; warranty; stand and accessories; and whether it's fire-retardant or fade-resistant. Here's an overview of what to think about before you buy.

Height and Width

Artificial trees generally come in full, slim, or pencil widths. Height varies considerably and usually at 6-inch increments. The smallest versions are tabletop trees, while the tallest can reach about 12 feet.

Branch Type

Artificial trees are crafted to resemble real trees, including common varieties such as pine and fir. Branches of artificial trees will be hinged (permanently affixed) or hook-in, which hook into specific spots on a tree and take more time to assemble. Tip count or density will affect how full the artificial tree looks.

Price

The price of artificial trees is affected by different factors, including quality, height, branch type, and accents. Artificial trees may also be ordered in custom sizes, which can increase the price.

Warranty

Most artificial trees are designed to last about 10 years. However, you may want to research whether your artificial tree comes with a warranty that guarantees its lifespan and durability.

Stand and Accessories

Many trees come with a stand, which is typically metal or plastic, as well as a storage bag, which can improve convenience.

Fire-Retardant and Fade-Resistant

Choose a tree that is both fire-retardant and fade-resistant to withstand conditions inside your home.
