    The True Needle® Process

    How we replicate nature with precision.
    1. Our founder studies and photographs trees in their natural environment. We refrigerate real branch specimens at our manufacturing facility and reference them in the development process.
    1. 3D branch prototypes are refined until they look just like nature. We use the final prototypes to make production moulds and optimize each mould to remove the slightest imperfections.
    1. Branches are colour-matched against real specimens, and then dipped, sprayed, and hand-painted to produce the true-to-nature look that defines True Needle® foliage.

    The Journey of a Balsam Hill Tree

    Take a peek inside our exclusive process of creating highly realistic trees with our founder, Thomas Harman.

    Choosing a Realism Level for Your Tree

    Most Realistic
    • More than 70% True Needle® (PE) foliage for outstanding realism.
    • Incredibly lifelike whether viewed from 30 feet or 3 inches away with Classic Needle (PVC) foliage used near the trunk to enhance fullness.
    • A mix of True Needle® (PE) and Classic Needle (PVC) foliage, balancing realism and budget.
    • True Needle® branches compose the more visible exterior of the tree, while Classic Needles form a lush, full interior.
    • Our most cost-effective trees with 100% Classic Needle (PVC) foliage.
    • Only top-quality Classic Needle for high needle density, reduced shedding, and rich colour that won’t fade.

    "This tree is so lifelike, with multi-textured branches and needles, a white under colour to some
    of the branches, it is just simply wonderful."
    MARTIN FROM SURREY, Owner of the Nordmann Fir

    into place on a built-in rolling stand, flip it over,
    and attach the smaller treetop.

    Easy Plug light strings connect through the trunk
    so that the only plug you need to touch is the one
    that goes into the wall.

    Additional Easy Setup Options

    Pre fluffed Trees

    professionals prior to delivery. Strong memory wire
    branches fan out as you set up, so fluffing takes less
    time. All Pre Fluffed trees come with Easy Plug.
    Easy Plug Trees
    Our innovative lighting system features pre-
    connected light strands through the trunk, so the only
    plug you need is the one that goes into the wall.
    Included on all pre-lit Flip and Pre Fluffed trees.

    Need Help Getting Started?

    Balsam Hill®’s mission is to create beautifully crafted artificial Christmas trees to make your Christmas celebrations picture-perfect. Our lifelike trees are inspired by nature and designed for convenience and longevity. We’re committed to offering the best artificial Christmas trees that suit your style and space with various foliage types, sizes, shapes, and setup options.

    Faux Trees Inspired by Nature

    Balsam Hill® artificial Christmas trees are composed of two main types of needles: PE (polyethylene) and PVC (polyvinyl chloride). Our exclusive True Needle® foliage is modelled after real evergreen tree branches. They’re made from injection-moulded PE designed to replicate the structure, texture, and colour variations of natural branches. Classic Needle foliage is made from flat PVC strips traditionally used for most artificial Christmas trees in the market.

    Balsam Hill® Christmas trees are offered in three levels of realism. Our Most Realistic Christmas Trees are made up of at least 65% True Needle® foliage for outstanding realism. Our Realistic Christmas Trees are made with a combination of True Needle® and Classic Needle foliage for realism and fullness. Our cost-effective Traditional Christmas Trees are made with mostly Classic Needles and the same Balsam Hill® quality.

    Decorate Every Room, Big or Small

    Balsam Hill® trees come in varied sizes to bring Christmas cheer to any space. 4 to 4.5 feet-high Christmas trees are suitable for rooms with limited space. They can be used as centrepieces or entryway accents. 5 to 5.5 feet-high trees and 6 to 6.5 feet-high Christmas trees are designed to fit most homes with average ceiling heights. 7 to 7.5 feet-high trees are a popular choice and considered the best Christmas tree for living rooms and foyers with the 8-foot ceilings. Christmas trees 8 to 12 feet tall look great when displayed in rooms with high, vaulted ceilings and areas with a lot of vertical space.

    Light Up Your Artificial Tree Beautifully

    Balsam Hill® artificial Christmas trees are available pre-lit for a hassle-free set up, and unlit if you prefer to string your own lights. Our pre-lit artificial trees come with hand-strung, energy-saving LED lights that are evenly distributed and professionally arranged. Enjoy the warm, candle-like glow of LED Clear lights, the festive jewel tones of LED Multi-coloured lights, or the beauty of one or both with our LED Colour+Clear™ technology. We also offer LED Fairy Lights for a delightful Christmas tree display.

    Shapes to Suit Your Style and Space

    Balsam Hill® trees come in various shapes and sizes. A Full tree is considered the best Christmas tree shape because its classic silhouette suits most decorating themes. Narrow trees offer the look of a full tree with a slimmer silhouette, while Slim trees dress up tight corners without sacrificing height. Our Flatback tree is a creative solution for limited spaces. Its flat side rests against the wall to create an illusion of a full tree while taking up a fraction of the space.

    Set Up with Ease

    Enjoy the convenience of Balsam Hill®’s Easy Setup Trees. Reduce setup time with Pre-fluffed™ Trees which are designed with memory wire branches that fan out upon unboxing. Meanwhile, our patented Easy Plug® Trees come with pre-made light connections inside the trunk which makes lighting as simple as plugging into a wall socket.
