How to Assemble the Flip Tree

Assembling an artificial Christmas tree each holiday season can be a daunting task. The idea of arranging branches, attaching sections together, and stringing up lights can feel like quite a handful to most of us.

We are more than pleased to make your Christmas tree assembly virtually effortless with our exclusive Flip Tree™.

The Flip Tree is expertly designed with a patented construction that makes it easy to move, assemble, collapse, and store. These trees are equipped with Easy Plug technology, making them our easiest and quickest trees to set up. Flip Trees come with two main sections: a base attached to a rolling stand, and the treetop. Depending on the height of your tree, the treetop may come in two sections.

This step-by-step guide explains how to properly set up your Balsam Hill Flip Tree for the holiday season. Note that the key to a beautifully full tree is in how you shape it; you can see our full article on shaping artificial Christmas trees here.

Assembling a Flip Tree


Step 1
Roll the tree’s bottom section out of the shipping box to your desired display location. Unbuckle the storage bag, undo the Velcro lining, and slide the storage bag off the tree.

Step 2
Step down on the front wheels to lock the brakes. Find the flip path indicator arrow on the top of the flip pole to figure out which direction the tree’s bottom section flips. Clear the flip path by pushing the branches left or right of the tree trunk. Make sure that there is enough room to flip it.

Step 3
Flip the tree by placing one or both hands on the top of the flip pole and pulling in the direction of the arrow towards you. Place one foot on the horizontal bar on the stand to make the tree stable while flipping. Lock the tree into place using the safety strap at the base. Plug in the lights to ensure they are all working.

Step 4
Take the tree’s top section out from its individual storage bag. Insert it into the pole of the tree base. The Easy Plug function automatically connects the light strings through the tree trunk.

Step 5
Bring your tree to life by fluffing it: this includes stretching out the branches to fill any gaps and to give the tree its full form. Your Flip Tree is now ready for decorating.


Step 1
Unplug the tree and detach the top section. Step down on the wheels to lock the brakes and unbuckle the strap located at the base of the tree.

Step 2
Spread the branches apart to make way for the Flip Tree path. Pulling the center pole towards you, flip your tree into storage position.

Step 3
Roll up the cord and place it neatly within the tree. Compress the tree and enclose it completely into the storage bag. Close the bag’s Velcro lining and buckles.

Step 4
Compress the tree’s top section and place it into its storage bag. Unlock the brakes and roll your tree into storage.

Artificial Christmas tree technology has come a long way over the years and, with Balsam Hill’s Flip Tree, you can enjoy the ease and convenience of the latest innovations in one premium Christmas tree.
