Flocked Christmas Trees

A flocked christmas tree make it appear like your tree is covered with a light coating of snow. You can decide how much snow you want your tree to be covered with. Pinecones or berries can also be added as a decorative factor that matches well with the snow covered look.

Tree Height and Width

One of the most important factors when deciding to purchase an artificial christmas tree is to look for the size of the tree. Would you prefer a thin pencil style tree that would fit well in your small space? Or would you like something that’s shorter and bushier. Knowing what space you have to work with ahead of time would be a good place to start. Trees can be as tall as 12 feet so be sure to measure how much space you have in your home and allow for room to decorate as well.

Types of Materials

You’ll also notice that artificial christmas trees are made up of different materials. The branches can be hinged or not, and PVC or PE are typically used to make up the needles.  If you’re an eco-conscious, be sure to use something that is locally made or uses eco-friendly materials.
