When artificial Christmas trees were first introduced, needles were made of PVC. This material is hard-pressed into thin pieces, then cut into fine, rectangular needle-like strips. The strands are then twisted between two strings of wire to outline the tree branches. Read This Entry

Here at Balsam Hill, we take pride in our commitment to creating the most realistic artificial Christmas trees. Our trees are highly regarded for their beauty and exceptional realism, and we’re constantly finding ways to make our products even better.

Through thoughtful design and our True Needle™ technology, we are able to replicate nature’s finest foliage—from the color and texture of the needle tips, to the structure and shape of the tree. Here are five of the most realistic Christmas trees crafted by Balsam Hill.

A Balsam Hill Wedding Series

Share Button

Over the years, wedding bells have heralded the month of June. With this joyous season in full swing, we thought we’d tap into the expertise of two of the most creative designers from across the blogosphere for ideas, tips, and tricks on how to style weddings.

In the coming weeks, Rachel of Handmade Charlotte and Courtney of French Country Cottage will be guesting on our blog to show us how to decorate a wedding venue. As a prelude, we invite you to a trip down memory lane with Dagmar’s Christmas wedding photos from last year.

A Wedding with a Touch of Christmas

Dagmar’s daughter Abbey got married in 2014, and it was a happy occasion that benefited from thoughtful planning. Dagmar decided to give the wedding a hint of Christmas to express both the excitement over Abbey’s happiness and the joy of welcoming a new family member.
