Pre-lit Christmas Trees

Set your celebrations aglow with pre-lit Christmas trees. Balsam Hill offers lifelike trees with a variety of lighting options that complement any decorating theme. Learn more about them below.

What Does “Pre-lit Christmas Tree” Mean?

A lighted Christmas tree completes your festive display, but it can be tedious to manually string lights to a tree. Choosing pre-lit Christmas trees makes setup easier, giving you more time to decorate.

A perfect example of this is Balsam Hill’s exclusive Easy Plug® trees, where you only need to stack the sections and connect the tree to a power outlet to turn on the lights. We also use this technology in our pre-lit Christmas tree pre-lit Flip Trees®.

How Many Lights Should an Artificial Christmas Tree Have?

The right number of lights can make all the difference when decorating your Christmas tree. Experts suggest stringing 100 to 150 lights for every 30 centimetres of the tree. This means that a 210-cm pre-lit Christmas tree looks best with 700 to 1,050 bulbs, while a 270-cm pre-lit Christmas tree should have around 900 to 1,350. Keep in mind that the light count you will need depends on your desired coverage, shape, and size of your tree. When looking for pre-lit options, check the “Light Details and Light Types” section to find more information on the number and type of bulbs used in each product.

If want more sparkle, consider using lighted baubles and tree toppers. These decorations complement a pre-lit Christmas tree with snow while adding an extra layer of shimmer to your display. With Balsam Hill's wide range of options, you're sure to find the perfect combination of lights and décor to make your tree shine.

What is the Best Pre-lit Artificial Christmas Tree for You?

Choose pre-lit Christmas trees that suit your decorating style, as well as your existing décor. If you want something traditional and simple, go for classic incandescent lights. For a more minimalistic look, we recommend using energy-efficient LED bulbs or creating an enchanting sight with fairy lights. You can also surprise loved ones with a white pre-lit Christmas tree for a stunning wintry scene. If you like the look of snow on your tree, choose a pre-lit flocked Christmas tree. Whether or not it snows where you live, a frosted Christmas tree pre-lit with clear lights makes for an enchanting display.

If you’re going for something more cheerful, opt for a Christmas tree lighted with colour-changing lights. Our LED Colour + Clear™ technology allows you to switch from clear to multicolour to both with the touch of a button. This pre-lit LED Christmas tree also has 30% more bulbs for extra brightness. You can also explore our Twinkly® Christmas trees which lets you customise the lights and even synchronize them to your favourite Christmas tunes from your mobile device.
