Majestic Pine Tree: Bringing the Splendor of Nature into your Home

Artists stretch the limits of creativity by altering what’s own in order to come up with a surprising creation. Andy Warhol exaggerated certain features of the subjects in his pop art portraits. For example, he changed the colors of Marilyn Monroe’s face to create a stunning work of art. At Balsam Hill, this practice can also be seen in modern Christmas trees.

The Freshness of the Majestic Pine

In recent years, we have seen a growth in the popularity of black trees for Halloween, orange trees for fall, and trees that depict the winter season using color for the variant. Balsam Hill has also somewhat stretched the limits of what is natural, or at least uncommon, not by simply altering the color of an artificial tree but by exaggerating its natural features.
