Professionally Hand-strung

Lights are strung by hand to provide optimal coverage and keep wires from showing.

Easy Plug™ Technology

Our patented trunk design has built-in light string connections for tangle-free set-up and storage. Simply plug the tree into an outlet to light it up. Available on most trees.

Optimized Bulb Hue

Exclusive Candlelight™ LEDs cast a warm, candle-like glow unlike the blue tones of most LED lights.

LED Christmas Tree Light Types

We offer pre-lit trees with LED lights in various colours. Unlike incandescent lights, LED Christmas lights use light-emitting diodes that don’t burn out or produce much heat. They emit brighter light and consume less energy. They also stay lit longer, saving you on both electricity and replacement bulbs.

Opt for a classic look with Candlelight LED, switch it up with colour-changing lights, or go for smaller lights that create a big impact. Enjoy energy-efficient, long-lasting lights no matter what style you choose.

How many lights do I need for my Christmas tree?

The number of lights depends on the height and shape of your tree. For example, a 225-centimetre tree with a full profile will require more lights than a narrow tree of the same height. Personal preference also plays a big role in determining light count.

Here are our recommended light counts based on tree height and desired coverage. Feel free to add lights depending on your preference.

Tree Height Low Density Medium Density High Density
195 cm 325 650 975
225 cm 450 900 1350
270 cm 675 1350 2025
300 cm 800 1600 2400
365 cm 1000 2000 3000
