Artificial or Pre-Lit Christmas trees have many advantages over live trees, starting with the fact that getting one doesn’t require cutting down a living tree. We’ve put together a list of the top reasons to choose a faux Christmas tree over a real tree this coming holiday season – read on to learn more!

Artificial trees usually come in a compact cardboard box that will easily fit in most cars or they can even be delivered right to your front door. Artificial Christmas trees also typically come with a stand designed specifically for that particular tree which helps to mitigate the risk of the tree leaning or tipping over.

For even more added convenience, opt for a pre-lit tree to make both setup and clean up time go much faster. Many artificial Christmas trees come pre-lit so you can skip the most time-consuming and frustrating part of stringing Christmas lights and jump straight into the fun part of decorating your tree.

It may seem like an artificial tree costs more than a real tree if you only look at the cost of using it one season. However, an artificial tree can easily last 10+ years whereas a real tree often hits the trash after only a few weeks. When you calculate the cost of using the artificial tree for several years, it only takes a few years to come out ahead. After that, it’s like having a free tree every year!

Also, as we mentioned previously, artificial trees often include a tree stand and lights (if the tree is pre-lit), so that’s even more savings you can count on!

Living Christmas trees are natural and therefore they are available in limited sizes, shapes, and colors. Artificial Christmas trees come in a wide range of colors, shapes, sizes, and styles, ensuring that you will find a tree to match your taste. Furthermore, artificial Christmas trees frequently have matching accessories, like garland or wreaths, and even Christmas decorations that are available to help create a coordinated Christmas look in your home.

Unlike live Christmas trees, artificial trees don’t need to be watered. They also don’t drop pine needles or sap like real trees, so you don’t have to spend as much time cleaning up after them.

Live Christmas trees have a tendency to dry out and, when paired with Christmas lights that produce heat, can pose a serious fire hazard. Artificial Christmas trees are made from fire retardant materials, making them a much safer option for your home. You do, however, need to be diligent about not overloading electrical sockets with Christmas lights.

Additionally, when live trees dry out their branches tend to droop which can cause ornaments to slip off and shatter. Artificial trees hold their shape so you can rest easily so that your favorite ornaments won’t easily fall off branches and break.

Artificial Christmas trees are less likely to trigger allergic responses in sensitive family members and friends than live trees, whose branches and foliage often house dust and mold. In order to keep your artificial tree allergy-friendly, it is crucial to properly store your Christmas tree when it’s not in use to protect it from accumulating dust and mold while in storage.

What to look for when buying pre-lit or artificial Christmas trees

The Right Size
Artificial trees come in all sizes, from the big trees you see in the local shopping mall to the little plastic ones on the counter at your drug store. When choosing an artificial tree, consider how much space you have. Measuring the space you want to use is a good thing to do before you choose your tree.

Set up is another important thing to consider. A bigger tree is harder to move, store, and manage. It will also take more time to set up and decorate. The height is as important as the width, and make sure you look at the collapsed size as well. Also, keep in mind the space you have to move the tree though on its way to its final spot, and make sure you can get the tree into position.

The Right Shape
This is an aesthetic concern, rather than a practical one. Most artificial trees attempt to mimic some actual evergreen tree in shape and appearance. Christmas trees are beautiful, but just as you like to match the decorations on your tree to the other decorations around your house or office, you want to match the appearance of your tree to your overall decorating scheme.

This is something that an artificial tree has over a real one. While you can pick and choose when selecting a real tree, there comes a point when you just have to take what you get. With an artificial tree, there is a wide range of specific choices that you can match with your decorating ideas. Some will be big and fluffy, and others will be thinner and straight.

The Best Material
Artificial trees, and specifically the needles, are usually made from one of two materials: PVC or PE (polyethylene). They each have benefits, and choosing one over the other is going to depend on what you’re looking for.

For example, PVC trees’ color will not fade, and so will always remain green. PVC is also fire resistant, making it significantly safer than a real tree, or even one made from PE. However, PVC needles are usually wired to branches, which can make the tree more obviously fake.
