    Customers love the European Fir™
    Stunning "real" tree.
    We were blown away as it looks just how we wanted it to, exactly like a real tree! The tree was a breeze to click together. I would definitely recommend this pre lit tree if your looking for that ""real"" tree look.
    —Jon & Cesca from North west
    Stunning tree
    Absolutely stunning tree - the European fir is not as uniform as others and looks so realistic. It allows me to hang baubles within the tree and not just on the ends. It was easy to set up and I am pleased I went for the prelit option!
    —Karen T from Airdrie, Scotland
    Yes I would buy again
    Such a beautiful realistic looking tree! We went for the 6.5' unlit tree which fits our space perfectly. The tree comes with little extras like gloves to fan the branches and a bag to pack it all away in which is a lovely touch.
    —Pen from Essex
    Incredibly Realistic!
    It is impossible to tell from a real tree unless you look close. We bought 'Scentscicles' to hang on it so it even smells like a real tree! It is very heavy and great quality and even comes with a bag for the stand with a handy karabiner.
    —Joey from York
    So realistic
    I always bought a real tree until last year when I purchased 6.5' European Fir. I was sceptical, however, when it was put up it looked so realistic, was easy to put together and take down after Christmas. It's worth every penny.

    LIFELIKE FOLIAGE

    Lush, Full Profile
    Full, pear-shaped silhouette with long, slender branches. Ideal for hanging baubles.
    Industry-leading lights

    The European Fir is offered pre-lit with Candlelight clear or Colour+Clear™ LED lights. It features our Easy Plug® design—strings are fully connected throughout the tree and connections between sections are made automatically inside the tree's patented trunk design. You only need to touch one light string during set-up: the one you plug into the wall. Trees with our innovative LED Colour+Clear® light technology have 50% more lights than our standard clear lit trees. Switch between all clear, all colour, or both clear and colour lights with the touch of a button. Comes with a dimmer function to adjust light brightness to your desired levels.

    Easy Plug™ Setup
    Light string connections between sections are made automatically inside the tree's trunk, so you only need to plug the tree into the wall.
    Color + Clear™ Option
    Our exclusive Color+Clear lighting system allows you to change from clear to multicolored lights effortlessly with our remote control.
    Professionally Hand-Strung
    UL® approved lights are professionally hand-strung to reduce the appearance of wires.
    Candlelight™ LED Lights
    Unlike the cold light emitted from traditional LEDs, our energy-efficient Candlelight™ LEDs provide a warm glow reminiscent of a candle's flame.

    Assembling your Balsam Hill™ Easy Plug™ Tree
    Shaping your Tree
    1. With each branch, separate out the individual tips and angle them out and away from the center of the tree.
    2. Angle the tips furthest back on the branch and sideways out from the branch to resemble a peacock's fanned tail when shaped.
    3. Shape the branches vertically upward as much as possible to give the tree its full appearance. Enjoy your Balsam Hill™ tree!
    Storing your Tree
    1. Remove all ornaments. Check that the tree is unplugged and the wires are not twisted or tangled to avoid damage while in storage.
    2. With the tree still standing, un-fluff the branches and detach each section of the tree.
    3. Secure the compressed sections with a cord or ribbon before placing them in the provided storage bag. Store your tree in a cool, dry location.
