Celebrate time-honoured traditions with a classic unlit artificial Christmas tree. Balsam Hill offers an extensive line of exceptionally lifelike trees. Unlit Christmas trees bring understated elegance to any space. Treat them as a canvas and transform them with your favourite baubles and trim. Fluff the branches to your desired fullness for a beautiful Christmas centrepiece.

Types of Unlit Artificial Christmas Trees Based on Realism

Our most realistic unlit Christmas trees feature branch tips moulded from live tree cuttings. Each artificial tree showcases the colour and structure of a real tree down to the last detail. Alternatively, we have more affordable varieties with realistic and traditional foliage. All our trees have durable hinged branches on all trees for easy setup and storage. Look for those that are Pre-Fluffed™, which are crafted with sturdy memory wire. This helps retain their ideal form and saves you time and effort in shaping the branches.

Shapes and Sizes of Unlit Artificial Christmas Trees

Choose from different silhouettes and heights to match your decorating needs. Make sure the tree fits the space you’re designing. Leave at least 6 inches of space between the top of your tree and the ceiling. More if you’re planning to use a tall tree topper.

Remember to account for the width of the tree, too. Full trees take the shape of traditional evergreens like the majestic fir and pine. This silhouette works best for areas with plenty of space. Choose tall varieties like a 10-ft. unlit Christmas tree for spacious rooms or those with vaulted ceilings. For compact spaces or nooks, look for trees with a narrow profile like our faux spruce selections. Pick slim unlit Christmas trees if you’re decorating a small apartment or tight corners.

Decorating Tips for Unlit Artificial Christmas Trees

Beautiful whether decked out or left bare, unlit trees suit any style. Here are a couple of tips when shopping for tree decorations:

  • How many baubles do you need for your artificial tree?

The number of baubles depends on your theme and other preferences. There’s no exact number or rule for this. To give you an idea, a 7.5-ft. unlit Christmas tree needs around 70 to 105 pieces of standard-sized baubles (4 to 8.75 inches) for even coverage. A 9-ft. unlit Christmas tree, on the other hand, needs around 105 to 140 baubles. You may need more for a full tree and fewer for slim unlit Christmas trees.

  • How many lights do you need for your unlit Christmas tree?

Like baubles, the number of lights you need depends on the height and shape of your tree. As an example, a 7.5-ft. unlit Christmas tree may need around 450 to 1,350 light bulbs. Meanwhile, a 10-ft. unlit Christmas tree may need around 800 to 2,400 light bulbs. Slim unlit Christmas trees usually call for fewer light strings compared to fuller trees of the same height. If you want a brighter tree, add more lights or use reflective baubles and tree garlands.

Make this season more magical and memorable with gorgeous unlit Christmas trees. Shop lifelike artificial trees and Christmas décor at Balsam Hill today.
