    FEATURED: VERMONT WHITE SPRUCE & ALPINE BALSAM FIR

    Professionally Hand-Strung

    Lights are strung by hand to provide optimal coverage and keep wires from showing.

    Easy Plug™ Technology

    Our patented trunk design has built-in light string connections for tangle-free set-up and storage. Simply plug the tree into an outlet to light it up. Available on most trees.

    Optimized Blue Hue

    Exclusive Candlelight™ LEDs cast a warm, candle-like glow unlike the blue tones of most LED lights.

    Pre-lit Christmas Tree Light Types

    We offer pre-lit trees with LED lights in various colours. Unlike incandescent lights, LED Christmas lights use light-emitting diodes that don’t produce much heat. They emit brighter light and consume less energy. They also stay lit longer, saving you on both electricity and replacement bulbs.

    Opt for a classic look with Candlelight LED, switch it up with colour-changing lights, or go for smaller lights that create a big impact. Enjoy energy-efficient, long-lasting lights no matter what style you choose.

    How many Christmas tree lights do I need?

    The number of lights depends on the height and shape of your tree. For example, a 7-foot tree with a full profile will require more lights than a narrow tree of the same height. Personal preference also plays a big role in determining light count.

    Here are our recommended light counts based on tree height and desired coverage. Feel free to add lights depending on your preference.

    Tree Height Low Density Medium Density High Density
    6.5 feet 325 650 975
    7.5 feet 450 900 1350
    9 feet 675 1350 2025
    10 feet 800 1600 2400
    11 feet 900 1800 2700
    12 feet 1000 2000 3000
