The best artificial Christmas trees you can buy
- Artificial Christmas trees have come a long way. Now they offer a much more realistic and festive look during the holiday season than their predecessors.
- Even better, quality artificial Christmas trees are available in a variety of sizes, shapes, and styles, from smaller trees that are ideal for apartment living to nontraditional trees like the ombre one in this guide.
- The 7-foot Classic Blue Spruce from Balsam Hill is the best artificial Christmas tree you can buy with a convincingly realistic look, full body, and durability that ensures this tree will last for years to come.
The artificial Christmas trees of today aren't the aluminum monsters of the Charlie Brown Christmas age. Today, many are made of high-quality combinations of PVC, polyethylene, and sometimes vinyl, that you have to get right up against and take a big whiff of before you realize they're not from a Christmas tree farm outside of town.
Can grabbing the artificial tree box from the basement ever equal the nostalgic thrill of chopping your own from a snowy field and strapping it to the roof of the family car? Don't even try to convince me. However, can a natural tree rival the convenient, no-mess, lower-cost, Amazon-deliverable, symmetrical perfection that a high-quality artificial one can lend your holiday decor? Not likely.
