The holidays are never complete without a Christmas tree. When designed with the perfect ornaments, your Christmas tree is sure to be an elegant centerpiece for your guests to admire. When shopping for a tree, make sure that you choose a tree that can last throughout the season and for years to come.

It’s quite confusing to pick just one tree from the different types of trees being sold on the market. For something traditional and elegant yet hassle-free, Balsam Hill’s stunningly realistic artificial Christmas trees cannot be beat. This post gives you the basics of the various kinds of artificial trees according to their profile.

Full Trees

Full-profiled trees guarantee sophistication with their wide breadth. Most of these trees are inspired by their real counterparts. For instance, the Classic Blue Spruce Christmas Tree by Balsam Hill, just like the Colorado Blue Spruce native to said state, spans a 64-inch diameter for a tree that stands 9 feet tall. With this tree, you will never run out of branches to hang your Christmas ornaments.

Artificial Christmas trees with full profiles are given a lush appearance with their realistic foliage, making them perfect for opulent holiday parties.

Slim Trees

Slim or narrow trees are great ways to maximize the space in your home. Even with their narrow profiles, they transcend trends with their stunning, elegant appearance. Slim trees can also be purchased in pairs and placed by doorways as a way to welcome family and friends.

For the modern family who wants to take a step further in decorating their home for the holidays, slim trees are the ideal buy.

Flatback Trees

If slim trees still consume too much space for your liking, another good option is a flatback tree. A flatback artificial Christmas tree looks like a full Christmas tree, but is only half of its actual size. The flat side of the tree can be placed directly against the wall so that the lush foliage faces the room.

Flatback trees are perfect for young homeowners who want a full tree but do not want to sacrifice floor space.

Topiary Trees

Homeowners who love gardening will enjoy topiary Christmas trees. Placed in ornamental pots, these trees can be used all year long. Smaller topiary trees can even be placed on desks or tables for a more festive holiday celebration. Balsam Hill has several topiary trees cut in different designs to suit every taste.

Because everyone has different decorating wants and needs, knowing the different profiles of trees is particularly helpful. While the width of a tree may only be a number, it can be quite a dilemma to place a 60-inch wide tree in a room that only has a small area available. Hopefully with this guide, choosing the perfect tree for your home will be that much easier.
