Bring home the wonder and joy of Christmas
with a tree so realistic it's magical.
Inspired by Nature
Our exclusive True Needle® foliage is modelled after
real evergreen branches to beautifully replicate
The True Needle® Process
- 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.
- 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.
- 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
Choosing a Realism Level for Your Tree
- More than 70% True Needle® (PE) foliage for outstanding realism.

"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."

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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
