Assembly, Use and Care

Assembling the Lights

Balsam Hill’s pre-lit trees are available in 2 light assembly types: Easy Plug™ trees and traditionally-lit trees.


Easy Plug trees have light connections inside the trunk so that the tree lights up automatically when you stack the sections together.

Troubleshooting Tips:
If the lights for an entire tree section do not come on, try rotating the sections so they are seated more firmly together. For other light troubleshooting tips, please review our
troubleshooting guide.


Traditional pre-lit trees have light strings that are manually connected end-to-end outside of the tree’s center pole. These trees come with an on/off foot pedal. Begin by assembling the tree according to the assembly guide.

  • Step 1   |   Plug in the Tree

    Identify the extension cord with a foot switch and plug it into an electrical outlet. Press on the foot pedal and the bottom tree section should immediately light up.

  • Step 2   |   Connect the Light Plugs

    Identify the colour-coded plugs and sockets on each tree section. Insert each plug into its corresponding socket with the matching sticker.

  • Step 3   |   Use the Foot Pedal

    Your tree should now be fully lit. Use the foot pedal to turn the lights on and off.
