One of the most easily recognizable Christmas symbols, the Christmas tree has undergone changes in recent years, and not just in terms of ornaments. An increasing number of people choose to put up artificial trees for Christmas instead of the real ones.
No matter if it is because they are allergic to the real trees, because they are environment conscious, or because they hate lugging in a real tree that sheds needles all over the floor, they have a good point. Purchasing an artificial tree now means you will get to use it every year, as these products are designed to last throughout the seasons.
Features of an artificial tree
Some trees are minimalist, but many look real nowadays. Regardless of their looks, most are easy to set up and take down, without leaving any needles behind; they are also considerably lighter than their real counterparts, even at impressive heights of 7 feet or over.
Quality artificial trees come with a 5-year warranty, so that you don’t have to worry about your holidays being ruined by any branches that might become loose or anything like that. Finally, while most trees are meant to be used indoors, there are some that can also be placed outdoors, in your yard or on a balcony, thus mimicking the versatility of a real tree.
It’s time to celebrate
If you too are a Christmas-time enthusiast, then you are in luck, as artificial trees come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. Usual heights range from merely 12 – 24 inches for trees that can be easily placed atop a table, all the way to 7 or even 10 feet – impressive trees great for people who want to go all out.
The more complex artificial trees feature lots of full, thick branches. Some come equipped with hundreds of lights, which will save you not only money, but also a lot of time that you would otherwise spend trying to untangle your old Christmas lights. Just make sure to check in advance whether the lights are all clear, multi-colored or maybe a mix of both types.
There are trees for everyone, including for those people who are not really into the holiday spirit, but still want to celebrate. They can choose an artificial Christmas tree that only has a couple of branches to provide enough room for just a couple of ornaments and few lights.
