The Best LED Christmas Trees For 2022

Decorating the Christmas tree is always one of our favorite holiday traditions, and it doesn’t really feel like Christmas until the tree is decorated. For people with allergies — or simply an aversion to vacuuming up pine needles all winter long — artificial LED Christmas trees offer a festive alternative to the traditional Christmas tree. 

The best LED Christmas trees will shine merry and bright in your home for many years to come, and our favorite artificial trees look just like the real thing. LED pre-lit Christmas trees also take some of the work out of decorating your tree, letting you skip right to the best part — hanging ornaments while you listen to your favorite Christmas music. Soon, it will be time to hang the tree topper.

While some traditionalists still believe trees should be decorated with just a few pine cones and bits of ribbon, the ‘modern’ tree looks a lot different from the original. A good example of this evolution can be seen in tree lighting. Once upon a time, simple holiday candles would have been used for their light and beauty. However, with time, candles were replaced by filament-containing electrical white lights, then colored lights, and more recently, tree lights have been updated to advanced LEDs.
