They would bundle up against the cold, set out to find the perfect tree only to settle for one when frost bite threatened to set in and the kids were tired of looking at trees that all looked the same. Then they had to contend with the mess of falling needles, possible allergies and the worry that someone forgot to water it.
Today it is more common for families to purchase an artificial Christmas tree. The American Christmas Tree Association reported more than 75.2 American households displayed artificial trees last year and according to a social media survey, people are very passionate about them and go through quite a process to purchase one that is “perfect” for their family. The top reason for families turning to artificial trees is allergies, the second most important reason is not having the mess a “live” cut tree makes and finally because they can reuse the tree year after year. There are some fantastic looking “artificial” trees that are hard for people to know they are actually not a fresh cut one. The following are some of the best artificial Christmas Trees.
National Tree Company Christmas Trees
This company creates Christmas Trees that look like Santa’s elves created them. Their 7 1/2 foot, North Valley Spruce Tree is 52 inches in diameter and in an all metal construction. The branches connect to the center pole which comes apart in three sections for easy storage and east setup. It comes with its own folding metal tree stand and is an incredibly full looking tree with 1346 branch tips. Full instructions are included so you’ll always know just how to create the perfect shaped tree.
This beautiful “real-looking” tree is shaped like a conventional cone and the branches attach with a tight fit to give the tree a full look. It comes with a full five year warranty and reusable package to store it away after the holidays. Customers who have purchased this tree like how tall it is and how perfectly it fits in their home. Others like the full-look of the branches and say it is not a “slim” tree, but also not to full to take up a whole room. Many say it is the perfect size.
Oncor Recycled Trees
One of the oldest Christmas tree manufacturers is, Oncor Recycled Trees who have been in the business since 1980. They specialize in unlit trees made from recycled PVC plastic making them one of the most eco-friendly Christmas trees produced. Their trees are created from quality raw material and tree parts and they give all their trees at least a 30 year life span. They have a tree called, Slim Pencil Christmas Tree which is seven feet tall and 26 inches at its widest diameter. When shopping for Christmas trees you should check the amount of floor space you want covered. Many find the Pencil Slim tree is just the right diameter for the space they have chosen for their tree to stand. This flame retardant tree is 100% recycled PVC plastic with 756 tips to create an exceptional slim tree for any home.
Another feature with the Oncor Christmas trees is their assembly is done by “hinged” branches which make the setup much simpler. Hooked branches, where each individual branch is attached separately are much harder to shape. With pre-attached, hinged branches all you need to do is pull them down and shape according to desired look. Your Onor tree would be shipped in a reusable “green” box so the tree can be easily stored in the package it arrived in. Customers have said these trees are perfect for rooms with not too much room available for the full Christmas tree, and still give the look of one.
The Perfect Company Christmas Trees
The Perfect Company is the creator of quality Christmas trees that provide convenience with excellent service. They design their trees at their own factory to make sure they all meet standards and specifications their customers expect. They have been in the business for more than 30 years and the second generation took the business globally with a lot of success. The goal with The Perfect Company is to give excellent service with premium trees. The 8 foot Flocked Snow Christmas Tree is beautifully crafted with its 920 PVC tips. Branches on the tree are hinged making set up easy and it comes with its own metal stand. This tree presents an elegant look with white flocked on the green branches.
This 8 foot tree weighs only 22.3 pounds and is made from high quality, durable products. One customer wrote they were so impressed with the 6 foot tree from The Perfect Company; they turned around and ordered the 8 foot one as well. Another stated they were happy to see the flocking did not come off during setup except for a minimal amount from inside branches that was not even noticeable once tree was up.
To make sure you are getting the right Christmas tree for your needs you should think about how you plan to decorate it. You want to be sure the branches are sturdy enough to handle the weight of ornaments you plan to hang on it. Another consideration is if you have large ornaments you might want a tree with branches spread further apart.
The simpler look tree which can be very attractive is a tree with fuller branches and less ornaments. Whatever look you are seeking, an artificial Christmas tree is going to make your holidays much simpler, much more convenient, much safer and much cleaner.
