While it’s only September, it’s never too early to start thinking about the holidays, especially when it comes to your home decor. We are specifically focusing on the artificial Christmas Tree and besides being an almost one and done purchase, artificial trees make for a savvy financial purchase. They last for an average of at least 10 years, and, when the typical tree can cost at a minimum $100-$500 per year, it really does make more sense to buy faux.
Our artificial options below are beautiful, lifelike and will look great in any home. They all stand tall, starting at 6 feet (but go all the way to 7.5 feet), have the option of built-in lighting and are easy to assemble and disassemble when not in use.
Other great features include full and fluffy branches that can be customized depending on how full-bodied you prefer your tree to look, and sturdy steel bases that prevent breakage and provide stability. Finally, one of the most important aspects of these trees is their high-quality materials — they are made from flame-retardant PVC which is non-flammable and non-allergenic and will only contribute to you and your families’ safety.
