The Abies balsamea or Balsam Fir, one of the most common tree species in North America, boasts a gorgeous shape that is hard to ignore. It has a reputation as one of the three most popular Christmas trees of all time. It thrives in the mountains of Virginia through the Northeast and all the way into the Arctic Circle. With its dense needles, it is no surprise that the Balsam Fir has been a holiday favorite of many families.
Balsam Hill’s designers pulled out all the stops in creating the finest replica of this holiday classic. The BH Balsam Fir™ features foliage that is a faithful reproduction of the real tree’s distinct needles and semi-flat branch tips. Using actual tree cuttings as a guide, the BH Balsam Fir™’s special True Needle™ branches are realistic both in appearance and texture. The color variations within the branches add to the overall realistic look and feel, making it quite challenging to distinguish the BH Balsam Fir™ from its namesake.
If you grew up celebrating the holidays with a Christmas tree, you might have seen the Balsam Fir during one of your family Christmas gatherings. If not, it’s never too late to bring home a classic and enjoy its timeless beauty.
Aside from its beautiful shape highlighted by its upswept branches, the BH Balsam Fir™ now comes with modern conveniences that will make tree set up easy and quick. All pre-lit variants of the BH Balsam Fir™ come with our state-of-the-art Easy Plug™ technology, which connects the tree’s lights inside its trunk. Once the tree is set up, all light connections are also connected from within. Just plug your tree into a wall socket and you have a beautifully lit tree that will act as a centerpiece to your holiday décor.
There are also more than enough options when it comes to Christmas tree lights. For a warm, classic glow, you can opt for our Candlelight™ LED lights or choose our bright clear lights for a more modern appearance. Multicolor lights are also an option for those who enjoy the bright colors of the season. Our signature Color+Clear™ lights will also allow you to enjoy multicolor, clear, or a combination of both—all at the touch of a button.
