The True Needle Process

How we replicate nature with precision.
  1. Our founder studies and photographs trees in their natural environment. We refrigerate real branch specimens at our manufacturing facility and reference them in the development process.
  1. 3D branch prototypes are refined until they look just like nature. We use the final prototypes to make production moulds and optimize each mould to remove the slightest imperfections.
  1. Branches are colour-matched against real specimens, and then dipped, sprayed, and hand-painted to produce the true-to-nature look that defines True Needle foliage.

The Journey of a Balsam Hill Tree

Take a peek inside our exclusive process of creating highly realistic trees with our founder, Thomas Harman.

Choosing a Realism Level for Your Tree

Most Realistic
  • More than 70% True Needle (PE) foliage for outstanding realism.
  • Incredibly lifelike whether viewed from 30 feet or 3 inches away with Classic Needle (PVC) foliage used near the trunk to enhance fullness.
Realistic
  • A mix of True Needle (PE) and Classic Needle (PVC) foliage, balancing realism and budget.
  • True Needle branches compose the more visible exterior of the tree, while Classic Needles form a lush, full interior.
Traditional
  • Our most cost-effective trees with 100% Classic Needle (PVC) foliage.
  • Only top-quality Classic Needle for high needle density, reduced shedding, and rich colour that won’t fade.

"We are delighted with how it looks. It is like the real ones available in Australia. A few people
have had to touch it to check if it was real. Two people imagined they smelt pine."
JANE FROM SYDNEY, Owner of the MONTEREY PINE

Roll & Flip Setup
No more heavy lifting—just wheel the tree base
into place on a built-in rolling stand, flip it over,
and attach the smaller treetop.
Effortless Lighting
Easy Plug light strings connect through the trunk
so that the only plug you need to touch is the one
that goes into the wall.

over. Slip the included cover over the tree and roll
it into storage. Tree stores upright, saving space.

Each tree is individually hand-shaped by
professionals prior to delivery. Strong memory wire
branches fan out as you set up, so fluffing takes less
time. All Pre Fluffed trees come with Easy Plug.
Easy Plug Trees
Our innovative lighting system features pre-
connected light strands through the trunk, so the only
plug you need is the one that goes into the wall.
Included on all pre-lit Flip and Pre Fluffed trees.

Need Help Getting Started?

A Balsam Hill artificial Christmas tree brings all the holiday cheer of a live tree to your home without the hassle or messes that come with them. With our hinged branches and lightweight stands, setup is simple. Your Christmas tree will be ready to decorate in no time! We also offer both prelit and unlit options, so you can choose whether you prefer the convenience of never having to set up lights, or keep the option to change what type of lights you use from year to year.

Balsam Hill’s unparalleled artificial trees come in three levels of realism to suit different preferences and budgets:

  • Our most realistic trees are from our exclusive True Needle collection. These are created branch by branch using molds of live branches to meticulously copy every detail of mother nature’s best Christmas trees in bi-colored polyurethane plastic.
  • Our traditional artificial Christmas trees are made from durable PVC which is pressed into a thin paper-like material. Strips of this are expertly twisted into each wire branch, giving the tree a full and fluffy look that harkens back to the trees of Christmases past.
  • Our realistic Christmas trees offer the perfect blend of the more realistic style and a full traditional look. These feature some of the same mold injected branches, but with additional PVC branches filling out the spaces between to give the tree a more robust silhouette.

Balsam Hill creates the most realistic artificial Christmas trees ever produced. Designed by Balsam Hill exclusively for our customers, each Balsam Hill Christmas tree is crafted for exceptional quality, beauty and convenience. All trees 365 cm and under in our Vermont Signature, Napa Christmas and Smoky Mountain Christmas Collections come with our standard 3-year warranty. We feature varied types of trees from pre-lit Christmas trees, to unlit Christmas trees and LED Christmas trees. You can also browse through our collections of multi-colour pre-lit Christmas trees and clear colour pre-lit Christmas trees.
