Balsam Hill Special Feature: Heavenly Lights™

Share Button

Christmas tree with lights

Whether your Christmas tree comes pre-lit or unlit, no tree is complete without a medley of bright lights. Clear or multicolor, your choice of lights will depend on your personal preference, the type of look you want and whether you’re going for a certain décor theme. With the myriad of Christmas lights available today, it can be a chore to choose the one you want—the perfect one for your home.


Color+Clear™ lights

Many pre-lit trees from Balsam Hill come with the Color+Clear™ option; this is an innovative combination of our clear and colored Heavenly Christmas™ lights. Our clear Christmas lights give off a soft glow, while the colored ones feature rich jeweled tones. Color+Clear™ gives you the power to experience the best of both worlds, giving you the ability to change the light color to suit your holiday mood. It even comes with a handy remote control that allows you to choose between clear lights, colored lights, or both even from a distance. Our clear and multicolor lights are also offered for purchase separately.

Candlelight™ LED Lights

Candlelight™ LED lights

Mimicking the soft, warm glow of natural candlelight, our Candlelight™ LED lights provide a sense of warmth during the holidays. Unlike candles, however, these feature premium energy-saving LED lights that never burn out. The warm glow of our Candlelight™ LED lights is a nice contrast to the cold light emitted by traditional LED’s.

Multicolor LED Lights

Multicolor LED lights

Using the same premium LED lights, our multicolor lights are guaranteed to make your holidays glow with vibrant color for years to come. As festive as a rainbow and as elegant as a peacock, these multicolor lights are ideal for both indoor and outdoor use. If you’re looking for splashes of color in your home décor, these multicolor lights will ensconce your home in a cheerful mood throughout the season.

Why pre-lit trees?

One major benefit of pre-lit trees is that you don’t have to string the lights yourself when setting up your tree and then unstringing them after the holidays when you need to store your tree. This ensures that your tree looks evenly lit every year and that you don’t need to worry about untangling wires and light strings when it comes times to decorate for Christmas.

Patented trunk design with Easy Plug™ technology

A number of our pre-lit trees also come with our patented trunk design referred to as Easy Plug™ technology. These trees are designed to make lighting a breeze. It comes with pre-made light connections within the trunk, hiding unsightly wires and connecting all the tree’s lights. Lighting Easy Plug™ trees is as easy as plugging it into the wall.

The next time you’re planning on decorating for the holidays, don’t fret about what type of light to use. After choosing from the options listed above, all you need to worry about is what type of tree you want and what other décor to use with it.
