The holidays are right around the corner. What’s a celebration without your main decoration? This post has all the answers you need to that burning question: What is the best artificial tree to buy? We put together a Christmas tree buying guide that lists down everything you need to know.

Did you know that a tree is the perfect decoration for any occasion? ‘Tis always the season.

1. Know When and Where to Get a Christmas Tree

The main perk of shopping in stores or Christmas tree outlets is that you get to see and feel the “chosen one.” You can test out any technologies that come with it, too. However, prepare yourself for a potentially crazy crowd and slim pickings.

Surfing the web for choices may not let you see your tree up close and personal. But, know that you have a wide variety at your fingertips.

Tip: Before you click that checkout button, make sure to read up on the online store’s warranties and return policies. These should cover most defects, if any. Except of course for that last-minute decision change.

Whether you choose to buy your artificial Christmas tree at the mall or online, get the best bang for your buck. Quality trees don’t come cheap. Consider that Christmas trees can be used to decorate for any occasion all throughout the year. You need something that’s built to last.

Here are the best times to shop for an artificial Christmas tree:

  • Black Friday
  • Cyber Monday
  • Post-Christmas Sales
  • Christmas in July Sales
  • Clearance Season

Or, cut right to the chase and check out our colorful and green artificial Christmas trees on sale.

2. Choose Your Christmas Tree According to Height

The next thing to consider is the height of your Christmas tree. They come in various sizes to suit the available space you have at home.

Under 5.5 Foot Trees

Christmas tree buying guide height - under 5.5 feet

Short on space and a tabletop tree doesn’t cut it? You might want to consider one that’s 4 feet in height. Trees 5.5 feet and below are ideal for apartments with a low ceiling height.

6 to 6.5 Foot Trees

Christmas tree buying guide height - 6 to 6.5 feet

If you have a little more space to spare, then why not opt for a tree that’s 6 to 6.5 feet? It won’t take up as much space as an average-sized Christmas tree, but it sure looks like one.

7 to 7.5 Foot Trees

Christmas tree buying guide height - 7 - 7.5 feet

Got enough room in your living area? Then go for the most common height: 7 to 7.5 feet.

8 to 9 Foot Trees

Christmas tree buying guide height 8-9 feet

If you want things a little extra, try out an 8 to 9-footer. Make sure you have enough ceiling space for this height range.

10 Foot and Up Trees

Christmas tree buying guide height - 10 feet & up

Ready to go all out with a tree that’s fit for a mall display? Try one that measures 10 feet or more. Just make sure you have enough floor space and ceiling height.

Think about it. What’s the use of having a beautiful Christmas tree if you and your guests don’t have room to party?

3. Pick the Right Christmas Tree Shape for Your Space

Height isn’t the only thing that matters when you’re considering the size of your tree. Christmas tree shapes define the overall width of your holiday centerpiece. There are three basic profiles: pencil, slim, and full Christmas trees. Treetopia has a fourth shape made for tight living spaces: our flatback and corner trees.

Full Christmas Trees

Christmas tree buying guide shapes - full

The most popular shape of them all is the full Christmas tree. The traditional profile reminds you of the real tree you had as a kid. What you need to consider is your floor area and ceiling height. You need to have a lot of space to spare.

Shown here is the Alexander Fir Christmas Tree.

Slim Christmas Trees

A slim Christmas tree is an ideal choice for folks who want something that looks like a full one, but lack room.

Shown here is the Snowy Spruce Flocked Tree.

Pencil Christmas Trees

Go Christmas tree shopping for a white pencil tree

The unique profile of a pencil Christmas tree makes it a good option whether you have a huge or small space. It’s a statement piece through and through. In fact, it looks amazing decorated, lit up, or not.

Shown here is the Skim Milk Pencil Christmas Tree.

Flatback & Corner Christmas Trees

Finally, we have the space-saving wonders of the Christmas tree universe: flatback and corner trees. As their names suggest, they’re either half a tree or shaped to fit neatly in any corner. These trees work well for dorm rooms and tiny flats. Set one against a wall and enjoy more room to stack your presents.

Upside Down Christmas Tree

Here’s something that deserves an extra special mention: the upside-down Christmas tree. Say hello to more floor space and fun, fun, fun!

4. Find What is the Best Christmas Tree, According to Foliage Type

So, you’ve made the decision to go for an artificial Christmas tree this year. This means you have more to choose from in terms of shape and color to express your unique style. Foliage should play a big role in your tree hunt. This Christmas tree buying guide explains what to look for.

  • Realistic PE Needles

PE Needles

Want a tree that looks like it belongs in a Christmas tree farm? Your best bet would be green foliage that’s made from PE (polyethelene) with just a small percentage of PVC (polyvinyl chloride). These will have guests saying, “This tree could have fooled me!” Check out our selection of Realistic Christmas Trees to see what we mean.

PVC Needles

One of the benefits of artificial Christmas trees is you can have one in any shade. Or, even one that has every hue of the rainbow. Colorful foliage is typically made from 100% PVC. It may not look as real as PE foliage but hey, realism isn’t the name of the game here. It’s COLOR. Oh, and did we forget to mention patterns? Go crazy for our colorful and patterned trees!

Tinsel Needles

If you want something that scores a 10 for shine, then cop a Christmas tree with foliage made from tinsel. It’s also a bonus when you’re going for that vintage vibe. Here’s a tip: choose a tinsel tree with needles that are flame-retardant like ours.

5. Decide Based on the Available Lighting Options

Next up on our Christmas tree buying guide is how to choose according to light type. The traditional or incandescent types of Christmas lights are clear, multicolor, and colorful. Then, there are LED lights, which come in clear, multicolor, and color-changing variants.

Traditional Christmas Tree Lights

  • How to choose a christmas tree with clear lights
    Clear Incandescent Lights

If you want an old-fashioned Christmas, then traditional clear lights are the way to go. You can also opt for the multicolor type to take all that green foliage up a notch with lights in different hues. Finally, colorful lights come in the same shade as your tree’s foliage for a consistent look. Some of our pre-lit colorful trees have light strings in the same color as the foliage and the lights. Pretty amazing, right?

LED Christmas Tree Lights

Color-changing LED lights on a green tree

The great thing about LED lighting is that it’s an energy saver. Plus, color-changing variants let you switch from clear lights to multicolored ones. It’s all in the settings.

Treetopia’s Color Blast technology lets you play around with speed and brightness using a nifty remote control. Pressed for time? Choose from any of the pre-set options.

6. Know What is the Best Christmas Tree to Buy, Based on Budget & Features

How different is a $350 tree from one priced at $89 or $600? Aside from the size and light options, various factors set them apart. Look at details like branch tip and light count, foliage quality, and special features.

For instance, if you’re dreaming of a magical tree that “sets itself up,” you might want to consider our Grow & Stow Christmas trees. This feature allows a tree to expand and compress with a remote control or foot pedal. A 7.5-foot Portland Pine with this tech originally costs $1,589.

If you’re decided on going colorful, we’ve got a tree-mendous variety from all colors of the spectrum. To narrow your options, we’ve grouped them into three levels of awesome: Essentials, Premium, and Luxe.

    Hi Kathy,

    The width of our trees is measured across the bottom of the tree (at its widest part), from side to side or front to back (the diameter of the widest branch). Widths can vary between 1-3 inches, depending on how you shape your tree. These measurements are taken when the tree us fully fluffed and the branches have all be shaped and extended out.

    We hope this helps.
