LEVELS OF REALISM
We use real branch clippings as our guide in crafting highly realistic Christmas trees that remind you of your favourite tree species.
FIR ARTIFICIAL CHRISTMAS TREE
Fir tree branches grow densely, concealing its trunk. Flat, flexible needles sprout singly from the stem and feature blunt ends. They grow in a spiral pattern up to the tip of each branch, giving fir trees a lush appearance.Ideal for: Those who prefer fewer baubles on their tree
SPRUCE ARTIFICIAL CHRISTMAS TREE
A spruce tree has rough branches and needles that sprout individually from the stems. Unlike firs, spruce needles have pointed tips and four sides, which make them easy to roll between your fingers.Ideal for: Those who like the classic full tree shape and have heavier baubles
PINE ARTIFICIAL CHRISTMAS TREE
Pine trees have sparser branches around the trunk. Soft, long needles are attached to the stem in clusters of two, three, or five.Ideal for: Those who want to showcase more Christmas tree decorations
