True Needle® Christmas Trees

At Balsam Hill, we are dedicated to crafting the most realistic Christmas trees that you’ll find in the market today. Our True Needle® Christmas trees are designed with beauty and convenience in mind.

What is True Needle® foliage?

We use our exclusive True Needle® technology to achieve the look of real tree species found in forests and tree farms. This award-winning innovation involves PE (polyethylene) needles that are injection-moulded to mimic the structure, texture, and colour of natural evergreens. It simply is the best method for creating true-to-life artificial Christmas trees.

What is the best artificial Christmas tree that looks real?

The BH Fraser Fir® is Balsam Hill’s most realistic Christmas tree to date, crafted with our True Needle® technology. From its realistic tree trunk, warm brown branches, and two-toned rich green tips with silver undersides, we’ve made sure that this True Needle® Christmas tree matches its real counterpart with breathtaking accuracy.

Some of our most realistic Christmas trees feature a combination of True Needle® foliage and Classic needle foliage made from flat PVC (polyvinyl chloride) strips. These classic needles are added to the inside branches of the tree for a fuller look. Apart from the BH Fraser Fir, our most popular True Needle® Christmas trees are the Vermont White Spruce, Silverado Slim, and BH Balsam Fir.

What should I look for when buying an artificial Christmas tree?

  1. Realism

A Christmas tree shouldn’t just be any cone-shaped tree but should also be true to nature. Create an enchanting scene with a beautifully lifelike version of your favourite tree. Whether you prefer spruces, firs, or pines, you’ll find the picture-perfect backdrop for your celebrations from Balsam Hill’s selection of True Needle® artificial Christmas trees.

  1. Profile

Balsam Hill carries a wide assortment of trees of various shapes to suit your decorating needs. Full Christmas trees look best in wider spaces, while narrow and slim Christmas trees are better for areas with tighter space. Get a space-saving tree like flatback Christmas trees for smaller rooms and corners.

  1. Convenience

Balsam Hill Christmas trees offer convenient features that help you set up and pack up with ease. Our Flip Tree® is designed to lessen the heavy lifting involved in assembling a tree. All you need to do is roll the tree to the space, lock the tree base into place, flip it, and attach the treetop. Meanwhile, trees with our Easy Plug® feature are designed with pre-made light connections, so you simply need to plug your pre-lit artificial Christmas tree to light it up.

At Balsam Hill, we pay attention to detail, ensuring that you’ll get a stunning, high-quality tree that is incredibly lifelike. Find the best Balsam Hill Christmas tree for your home with these guides.
