Oh Christmas Tree, oh christmas tree

Are you a fake Christmas tree kind of person or a real Christmas tree kind of person? It’s an age old argument that today I’m here to settle because these trees look like the real deal, my friend.

Tips for finding the perfect faux tree

1. Pay attention to the Branch Tip Count. The higher the branch tip count, the more full the tree will look. Kind of the rule of thumb is that for the best look of a tree at 6’5″ you want between 8-900 tips. For a 7.5 foot tree 12-1500 tips.

2. Pay attention to the construction and the number of pieces. Many trees come in three simple interlocking pieces now which makes them super easy to put up and take down.

3. If you are buying a pre-lit tree, pay attention to the number of lights and the type of lights. In general, a good rule of thumb is at least 100 lights per foot of the tree. Also decide whether you want LED or incandescent lights. If you are buying LED, make sure the lights are the color temperature you want. 

4. Pay attention to not only the height of the tree, but the width around the base. You want to make sure it fits in your space!
