With the multitude of options available today in Artificial Christmas Trees, you are sure to find one that will meet your Christmas decorating needs. The advantages of owning one of these trees is that they will not bother your allergies, won’t drop needles, are flame-retardant, while being simply low maintenance and long-lasting, going from year to year.
The varieties of Artificial Christmas Trees include:
Unlit – the unlit tree is often the one that is designed to be the most natural looking. These trees come without any lights. You can decorate these trees without any added lights, or you can add your own lights as you choose. Since the lights are not part of the tree, you are also free to change your lighting from year to year.
Prelit – getting a prelit tree means you won’t have to drag out and untangle all of those difficult light strings each year. The lights have been placed on the tree for you, evenly spaced and often along the branch tips, where the lights look the best. Most prelit trees have branches you can shape to give a more natural and graceful appearance to your tree. Prelit trees are even available with the new popular LED Christmas lights. LED lights have bright, non-yellowy light while using up to 90% less energy than incandescent bulbs. LED bulbs also last longer; meaning the lights on your pre-lit tree will last longer as well.
White – White artificial trees have the beautiful appearance of a tree fully covered in frost. These trees give decorators the option of showing off bright and primary colored ornaments in an entirely new way. These trees can stylishly show off a range of color schemes. Where monochromatic decorations and lights would blend in with a green tree, these same colors really pop on a white tree.
Slim – the slim artificial Christmas tree can be placed in small, tight areas, or mimic slender trees that occur in nature. You can try placing slim trees in a group at a variety of heights to create a forest focal display for the holiday season. Slim and narrow trees can also be placed in pairs, one on each side of an entrance to create a welcome walkway while not being to overwhelming.
Outdoor – Artificial trees are not limited to the indoors! You can place a tree in your yard or on your porch, one that will never need trimming and can be taken down to allow the full use of the lawn or porch during the rest of the year. Outdoor lighting can be used on these trees, along with durable ornaments that are made to withstand the elements.
Tabletop – these smaller artificial Christmas trees are great for small apartments or for table centerpieces. There is no need for a young person off at college to go without their own miniature Christmas tree, like the one they grew up with. When used as a larger table centerpiece, an evergreen holiday decorator them can be carried throughout the home.
Today’s artificial trees last from year to year, store easily, and are environmentally responsible.
