How to Choose the Perfect Tree

The Christmas tree is the heart of the holiday home. Cherished family memories take shape beneath its boughs and twinkling lights, while glistening ornaments fill us with nostalgia each season. So naturally, choosing a tree that will last for years to come takes some careful consideration. From size and shape to variety and style, our lifelike Christmas trees are created with the detailed craftsmanship and curation we pride ourselves on delivering each holiday, which is why we want to help find the tree that’s right for you.


First, consider your space. Do you have low ceilings or cathedral? A small area you want to fill or a large one? All are important factors when it comes to tree selection. Slim trees are perfect for bringing impact to small or narrow rooms without having to rearrange furniture, or for decorating spaces like foyers and alcoves. Full trees with robust branches and wide girths, take center stage in larger rooms.

Next, consider height. Our trees range in size from 3 feet to 12 feet tall, making them adaptable to almost any living area. We even offer tabletop trees so you can bring the holiday spirit to every room in your house.


Once you’ve determined the size and shape tree you’ll need, it’s time to focus on the fun. Ask yourself “what’s my holiday style?” Are you a traditionalist who adores red and green? Maybe you like your yuletide glam, and a modern look is more your thing. Either way, you want your tree to match the rest of the decor that’s decking the halls.

Favorite holiday firs like Fraser, Noble and Balsam are perfect for a time-honored take. Our Flocked Christmas trees add a touch of winter whimsy with their look of freshly fallen snow. All are recreated using a proprietary mold of natural tree samples, a method we were the first in the industry to offer and continue to raise to perfection.

If fashion-forward is more your thing, our Oregon Pine Color Changing Tree ups the wow factor with a choice of Clear or Multicolor lights and a series of steady/blinking functions.


Speaking of lights, they’re another important styling decision. Our multicolor, pre-strung lights flash with holiday fancy, while classic white lights sparkle elegantly. Choose the one that speaks to you most and will complement the rest of your holiday display.

Finally, don’t forget to take note of tip count! A tree’s tip count indicates how full your tree will look. If you have a lot of ornaments, you may want a tree with a lower tip count to give you space for display, while a more minimalist approach will benefit from bushier sprays.

No matter what tree you end up choosing, the great news is, all of our trees are easy to assemble, arrive pre-lit and come with an unbeatable warranty.

Now that you have an idea of what you’re looking for, visit our tree gallery. A set of filters makes it easy to narrow your search by height, lights, shape and type. Once you find the one that’s just right for your home, you’ll make it a part of family tradition for years to come.
