It is that time of year when you need to start thinking about presents and booking holidays. It is going to be time to put the decorations up and go out hunting for the perfect Christmas tree. Real Christmas trees have a nice smell, but the shape is always disappointing. For the purposes of conserving the environment, the tree is often a branch cut from a much large tree. A branch cut makes a real tree look lobe-sided and scarce of foliage. When real trees start to die, they drop thousands of sharp needles that stick into the furniture and carpets. Artificial Christmas trees take the negatives away from the ritual of dressing up the living room. An artificial tree will stay together, and it is kinder to the environment. Why spend hours laying a tree, when you can get a decorated tree straight out of the box with the lights on it.
Here’s our list of the best artificial Christmas tress on the market:
When people refer to the Dunhill of Christmas trees, they are talking about this one. Dunhill has gone to the extreme by covering every part of this tree in branches and needles. The fir is so extensive that it comes over as looking artificial and will need boxes of decorations to balance it out. The fir branches are high quality, close up it is hard to tell if they are real or not. This is a 6-foot tree with hinged-branches for fast setting up and disassembling. Each branch will still need splaying out when it is standing. These are not cheap trees and are undecorated. These may be better suited to shop windows.
When Dunhill makes a product that has been done before, they use the best materials. This is a 7-foot tree with a folding stand. The realistic fir will have people getting close and personal to determine whether it is real. All of the branches are hinged to the 3-section tree making it fast to erect. No lights or decorations. The tree is ready to suit the decorating inspirations of the owner. Other than the foliage being extremely dense, it is hard to justify the cost. The price is high compared to other brands that make trees complete with lights and decorations. A good tree by a fantastic brand for a big price tag.
A 7-foot tall tree that needs a decent amount of space for its’ 59-inch base. The tree comes furnished with 300 LEDs and 1259 tips. The tree looks impressive but will take over a small room. The tree comes in three parts that are intuitive to put together. The branches and fir hide the cables to each of the LED lights. The branches are hinged, so there is no hunting around looking for the correct holes in the tree trunk. The fir looks more traditional and narrower than some other trees. It looks like the snow covering on the tips of the fir has been done in a more conservative way. A tree that looks more natural than other artificial trees.
To give a more realistic tree effect, this tree comes with 527 individual tips. Each branch has a thick bush of needles around it, giving the tree a fuller look. The firs also cover the spine of the tree and the metal branches better than the traditional looking tree. Fast to erect with only three breaks in the tree, each quick to sort, and click together. The bottom section has a diameter of 43-inches. The tree will stand 6-feet high on the folding base. The tips are coated with white artificial snow. Marks and Spencer sell these trees with a 5-year warranty. With 200 warm LED lights already on the tree, there is little more decoration needed to make it look ready for Christmas.
Spending hours fixing up the Christmas tree to look beautiful is not your thing. Then this is the tree. WeRChristmas has made this 6-foot tree ready to go. 300 soft LED lights illuminate the tree, that runs on a range of programs. Using the transformer, you can turn the lights on and off and select 5 different lighting effects. The branches splay out to, a wide, 46-inch diameter at the bottom of the artificial Scandinavian blue spruce. The ends of each branch have been sprayed with artificial snow to give them that festive look. The tree has even got basic decorations in the form of red berry and pinecones. This tree could be considered ready when assembled. This is a 3-part tree, with each part, the branches are hinged to the trunk and pre-wired for the lights. The whole tree stands on a foldable metal base. This tree is value for money. Fast to assemble, and easy to store.
Top Artifical Tree
If it is a tree that looks super realistic, Dunhill makes by far, the best artificial Christmas tree. The branches are plentiful, and every inch is cover in fir. However, the price is high compared to other brands and the value is just not there. WeRChristmas make a nice tree that is easy to install for a great price. All of the lights are included as well as some decorations in the form of berries, pinecones, and frosting. The whole tree looks warm like it belongs in a family home.
Marks and Spencer make a similar tree for less than the WeRChristmas. Their tree does not have the berries and pinecones, but then those dictate the colour scheme. Most of us have decorations going back years, it is the lights that cost money and get broken from repetitive rolling up. Both the 6-foot and 7-foot trees have a 20-foot power cable making placement easier. The frosting is a bit too much, but for the price, this is the best tree. It looks welcoming, the lights have a warm glow, and it leaves the decorating to be whatever you want it to be.
