Since the holidays are on the horizon, it’s once again time to start thinking about buying gifts, planning family feasts, and decorating your home. This year, as in years past, you’re probably having the same internal debate. Should you go the traditional route and buy a cut tree, or is this the year you’re finally going to invest in an artificial tree?

There is no shortage of options to choose from. Therefore, you could go for a traditional look by purchasing a bushy, beautiful Canyon Pine Tree. They range from 7.5 to 12 feet in height. It is already festooned with clear or multi-colored string lights. You can also opt for a Flocked Mountain Pine Tree, resplendent with smart string lighting. It practically brings the outdoors in.

You may prefer the dense foliage of a Southern Peace Pine Artificial Christmas Tree. Consequently, you may like the slightly sparser look of a Hillside Slim Flocked Pine. Maybe you find the natural silhouette, extended branches, and lifelike foliage of the Foxtail Pine more appealing. Therefore, you can truly find almost any tree in artificial form as you could in nature, even those with a snow-covered appearance.

The best part is that the benefits of owning an artificial Christmas tree will increase year after year. Here are a few annual advantages you’ll enjoy.

Save Expense

Much like cut trees, you’ll find that the cost of an artificial tree depends on the size and type of tree you select. Generally speaking, you can expect to lay down a few hundred dollars on an artificial tree. This might sound like a lot, but there are a few things to consider.

First of all, a tree that is pre-studded with lights means you’ll never again have to buy or hassle with strings of holiday lights. Your Noble Fir Christmas Tree with smart string lighting is plugged in and lit straight out of the box. Even if one light goes out, the others remain lit.

In addition, you’ll never have to buy another tree. You probably spend dozens or hundreds of dollars on a cut tree annually? Dozens or hundreds of dollars. Yet, you probably never find the perfect tree.

When you choose an artificial tree, it can be as dense or sparse with branches as you want. Therefore, you get a precise height and shape. Additionally, you’ll have options for lights or flocking that simply don’t exist with cut trees. Furthermore, when stored properly, an artificial tree lasts indefinitely. Over the course of 20 years, a $500 tree will equal $25 a year spent on your tree.


These days everyone is looking for ways to live a little greener. Instead of denuding a forest, opt for an artificial version of a Southern Peace Pine, a Foxtail Pine, or a Noble Fir. These come with or without lighting.

Not only can you avoid cutting natural trees, but you can significantly reduce your holiday trash dump in the process. Therefore, you won’t have to use extra water to keep your tree alive throughout the holiday season.

No Allergens

Although you may enjoy the smell of a pine tree in the house, many families have members that are allergic to cut trees. A traditional pine tree could leave sensitive family or friends sniffling, sneezing, and rubbing itchy eyes. Choosing a non-allergenic Flocked Mountain Pine Christmas Tree can deliver the same appeal, with none of the allergic reactions.

If you really want that pine tree scent, you can always purchase pine-scented candles or room sprays instead of causing your loved ones a miserable holiday, or a trip to the pharmacy for allergy medication.

No Fire Danger

There’s a reason you have to set up that ridiculous bowl base for your annual cut tree. It’s because a tree that goes unwatered dies and dries out and becomes a huge fire hazard. You’ll never have this worry with an artificial Canyon Pine Christmas Tree, which is flame-retardant.

Literally Zero Drawbacks

You’ll be hard pressed to find any downside to purchasing an artificial Foxtail Pine or Noble Fir Christmas Tree. These products are designed to provide the natural look you love, with none of the drawbacks commonly associated with live, cut trees. What are you waiting for? Make this the year you finally purchase an artificial tree. You’ll wonder how you ever thought a live tree was better.
