Balsam Hill Christmas trees are truly one of the best artificial trees that you can buy. But you should know that they do come with a more expensive price tag as well, but cheaper trees don’t even compare.
This particular tree is made with True Needle technology, which makes the needles on the tree look like real evergreen needles. Truly, with this tree most people won’t even be able to tell the tree is a fake one.

Just like every Balsam Hill tree it comes with a 10 year tree and foliage warranty. This is one tree that you will have for years and last a lot longer than your average discount store Christmas tree.
National Tree Carolina Pine Artificial Tree With Pine Cones and Clear Lights
This is another different option if you want more of a natural looking Christmas tree.
The tree comes with flocked pine cones attached to the branches to give it that more realistic tree that you would find out in the forest.
It also comes pre-lit with 750 UL listed clear lights. Some people prefer the pre-lit trees because they don’t want to hassle with the lights each year.

Choosing The Right Artificial Christmas Tree For Your Home
If you are still wondering what the right artificial Christmas tree may be for your home, there are a few things to consider before buying.
First, you need to decide how much room you will have for the tree. This includes the size of your ceilings as well as the width of the room. If you are uncertain what size tree you need, I recommend you check out my guide on choosing the right size Christmas tree for your home.
The second thing that you should look at is what type of tree you prefer. There are some people who simply want the most realistic type fake Christmas tree they can find while there are some other people who prefer the most unique artificial Christmas trees. There are even lots of people who prefer a great white artificial Christmas tree.
There are also different types of Christmas trees from a blue spruce to a Douglas fir and although they are all evergreens each one is slightly different in shape and appearance. Decide which one appeals most you.
If you have arrived on this article you are most likely looking for a artificial tree that looks real. Check out the selections above to see which one appeals most to you and fits in with your Christmas decorating.
Lastly, you should have a budget in mind when it comes to buying a new artificial Christmas tree. Although a fake tree can save you money over a few years time, it can be quite a large sum of money when you buy the tree.
You don’t want to end up with a beautiful, expensive Christmas tree and then then not be able to afford to put any gifts under the tree.
How To Make Your Fake Christmas Tree Look Real
If you aren’t able to afford a new Christmas tree or maybe you just bought one and it didn’t live up to your expectations, there are a few things that you can do to make it appear a little more realistic. You may not be able to make your tree look exactly like a real one from the Christmas tree lot, but you can make most of them look nicer and brighter.
If you have a Christmas tree that has lots of empty space and is not so full, you can learn how to make your Christmas tree look fuller. A fuller and thicker tree makes it appear much larger and a lot more realistic than some of these skimpy trees that look like plastic branches on a pole.
One way that you can make your tree look fuller is to simply add items from nature to the tree, such as pine cones and sprigs of actual evergreen branches.
Another way that you can make a fake Christmas tree look more realistic is to make sure that you fluff your tree as much as possible. It can be tempting to want to quit in the middle of fluffing all those branches, but even with the cheapest tree, it looks a hundred times better when all the branches are spread out and fluffed properly.
Try to angle the tips of the branches away from the center of the tree to make it appear fuller and more evenly spaced.
~Make Your Fake Christmas Tree Smell Real~
Lastly, if you are the type of person who simply loves the smell of a real Christmas tree, you can simply trick yourself (and others) into really believing your tree is real with Scentsicles. These are scented ornaments that you can hang on your tree that give it the smell of a tree fresh from the outdoors.
You hang them on your tree and people won’t even notice that they are anything but a normal Christmas decoration. You can also even use in them in other decorations including garland and mistletoe.
They come in a few different scents including white winter fir, fresh cut pine, and snow berry wreath. My favorite happens to be the white winter fir as it’s perfect for that real Christmas tree smell.
You don’t have to suffer with another Christmas tree that you don’t really like because it looks nothing like an actual real evergreen tree. Instead be sure to check out one of the most realistic artificial Christmas trees and really get the best out of your tree this holiday.
