The first factor to consider for your holiday tree is live or artificial. While some purists insist on a live tree, there are several reasons you’ll want to consider our World’s Best Christmas Trees, besides their lifelike realism:
Lower cost over time—the investment in a well-made artificial tree means you will have your decoration for many years to come, saving the costs of buying live trees year after year.
It’s ecologically smart—natural resources go into the growing of trees, along with pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers. Fossil fuels are consumed shipping trees around the country and again after the holiday when they need to be hauled away and processed into mulch. Keep your artificial tree for many holiday seasons and you’ll save resources year after year, a unique gift to the environment.
Time savings—choosing a tree pre-strung with LED or incandescent lights means no struggling with tangled wires. The pre-lit trees we offer will always shine on, even if one bulb breaks or burns out, backed by our Lifetime Guarantee of Complete Satisfaction.
Fewer Allergens—an artificial tree is less likely to bother allergies, while a live tree can release pollen and mold into the home.
Hammacher Schlemmer offers a large selection of artificial trees, including meticulous reproductions of Fraser, Noble, Balsam, Concolor, and Douglas firs. Our trees are available in a range of heights and come in full or slim widths to suit urban lofts as well as country estates.
We feature trees that are fashion forward, trees that are pure novelty and even a tree that Charlie Brown would love. You can view our complete Christmas tree selection online and find your perfect tree easily by filtering the results by branch and bulb type, tree height and width, and price.
