Thomas "Mac" Harman | CEO of Balsam Hill

Ask Mac: Which Balsam Hill Tree Should I Get?

‘Twas almost Thanksgiving
and all through the house,
none of my offspring were stirring,
not even my spouse.
And while I know I should get some rest,
I can’t help but write,
a note to all of you,
before I sign off for the night.
So many friends have asked,
“Hey Mac, what tree should I buy?”
I can barely keep up, in providing my replies.
So here are my thoughts, lucid and true;
I very much hope, they are helpful to you!

Balsam Hill Vermont White Spruce

(Impatient friends who want an immediate “80/20” answer: buy the Vermont White Spruce.)

For everyone else, first, thank you for your interest in welcoming Balsam Hill to your home! I’m honored. I know there are a lot of trees to choose from. In fact, I’ve personally designed all of our 50+ tree families.

I must admit this exercise is a bit like having multiple kids and the hazard of picking a favorite. Even the trees you might find on deep discount aren’t “bad” trees – they are just ones that apparently our customers didn’t like as much as I did!

3 Questions to Answer When Picking Your Tree

1. Did you grow up with a real tree?

If so, I’d suggest buying one of our replica trees from the region where you grew up as everything about them should seem familiar to you. If you grew up on the West Coast, I’d recommend the BH Noble Fir. If you grew up in New England or the Philly-NYC corridor, I’d recommend the BH Balsam Fir. If you grew up along the Atlantic Seaboard or in Florida, then the BH Fraser Fir. Anywhere else, I’d suggest the BH Blue Spruce.

If you didn’t grow up with a real tree, then I’d recommend the Vermont White Spruce (you just can’t go wrong with this tree – it is full, gorgeous, and versatile) or the BH Noble Fir (note it is a green-gray color). The BH Blue Spruce (a blue-green color) is pretty awesome, too. All three of these trees are terrific for hanging lots of ornaments, and easy to “fluff” to be super full and lush. Read This Entry
