    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.
    Realistic
    • 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.
    Traditional
    • 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

    so that the only plug you need to touch is the one
    that goes into the wall.

    Additional Easy Setup Options

    Pre fluffed Trees
    Each tree is individually hand-shaped by
    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?


    Create meaningful moments this festive season with Balsam Hill’s true-to-nature artificial Christmas trees. We design our Christmas trees with thoughtful details, prioritising convenience and longevity for a breathtaking display you can enjoy year after year. We’re committed to providing you with the best artificial Christmas trees that suit your style and space with various foliage types, sizes, shapes, and setup options.

    Real vs. Artificial Christmas Trees: Which is Better?

    While many love the natural beauty of real Christmas trees, artificial trees have gained much popularity in recent years. This is because today’s best Christmas trees have become more realistic and easier to set up than ever before. Here are some benefits of artificial Christmas trees:

    • Convenience

    Real trees require cutting, mounting, watering, and cleaning up of fallen needles. Meanwhile, artificial trees present the opposite. Balsam Hill artificial Christmas trees offer you the convenience of an easier setup and upkeep, as you and your family enjoy a beautiful tree all season.

    • Safety

    A real Christmas tree may cause allergies to some, and its dried needles are also prone to catch fire from open flames or damaged electrical lights. Artificial trees from Balsam Hill are made with synthetic materials that are non-allergenic and flame-retardant. This ensures that you’ll have a safe and worry-free display for everyone to delight in.

    • Variety

    Local tree farms only carry certain Christmas tree species native to their specific region. As the holidays draw near, the most popular types can run out fast. The beauty of Balsam Hill trees is that they’re designed after real evergreen species found in different parts of the world. This allows you to decorate with the Christmas tree of your choice no matter where you are, whenever you wish.

    • Cost-Effectiveness

    While real Christmas trees initially cost less than artificial ones, investing in an artificial Christmas tree will save you more money in the long run. As prices of real trees increase through the years, getting an artificial tree is the more practical choice with benefits you can take advantage of for years to come.

    Which is the Most Realistic Artificial Christmas Tree?

    Balsam Hill’s Most Realistic Christmas Trees are those that closely resemble fir, spruce, or pine tree species found in nature. We craft our most realistic trees with at least 65% of our patented True Needle foliage for utmost realism. This technology involves injection-moulded needles designed to mimic the structure, texture, and colour variations of real tree branches.

    The BH Fraser Fir® is our most realistic Christmas tree to date. It features 40 different tip variations, which is the most we’ve ever created for any of our trees. From its five-split forked tips, rich green needles with silver undersides, full silhouette, and organic treetop, we’ve made every effort to make it look and feel like the real thing.

    Some of our most realistic Christmas trees include the Vermont White Spruce Tree® which features a lush profile and upward sloping branches; the Alpine Balsam Fir™ which has sparse, open spaces between branches to highlight your baubles; and our well-loved BH Balsam Fir™ which features a full, teardrop shape and rich green foliage.

    When Should You Buy an Artificial Christmas Tree?

    Balsam Hill’s best deals on artificial Christmas trees are offered many times throughout the year. From Boxing Day to special sale events such as Black Friday and Cyber Monday, you can take advantage of several opportunities to get the best price on Christmas trees and seasonal décor.
