Choosing a Christmas tree is one of the most important events of the holiday season, and even more so when it comes to an artificial Christmas tree. These are made to be used year after year, but they are typically purchased online with only photos, descriptions, and testimonials as a guide, so it’s especially important to be sure that you are buying a high quality tree. At Balsam Hill, we are exceptionally confident in our unparalleled quality, exquisite realism, and excellent customer service.

However, we know that you are faced with many options when it comes to deciding on the perfect tree for your home. To help equip you with all the information you need to make the best purchase, we would like to offer you some information about how Balsam Hill stacks up when you compare our brand with Tree Classics, one of our top competitors. Let’s take a look at the factors to consider in choosing between Balsam Hill vs Tree Classics:

Balsam Hill Artificial Christmas Tree
Balsam Hill Christmas trees are known for unrivaled quality and realism.

Company Focus

Founded in 1976, Tree Classics boasts over 30 years of experience in artificial Christmas tree manufacturing. Their design, merchandising, and production of pre-lit artificial Christmas trees and related holiday décor makes them a leader in the industry, and they have a large customer base to prove it.

Balsam Hill, on the other hand, is more of a specialty boutique. We are not just known for top quality and realism, but also for our ability to take our products to a superior level that is simply unmatched by our competitors. We deliver more than just a great tree – we provide customers with the best products and service on the market.

Design Detail & Realism

Balsam Hill boasts a wide collection of signature Christmas trees that are consistently unrivaled among competitors. These trees are exquisitely designed with pure elegance and unmatched quality, constantly incorporating new features to ensure the ultimate in convenience and style. Stunning realism and impeccable detail mirror the verdant look and feel of a live Christmas tree. Our exclusive and innovative True Needle™ technology perfectly duplicates natural evergreen species for a gorgeous, true-to-life texture, silhouette, and coloring.

Tree Classics produces good quality, realistic trees, but they do not meet the same high standards as Balsam Hill trees. Tree Classics is more traditional and informal in style, and doesn’t offer as many innovative easy set-up features or design options. While Tree Classics’ trees are designed to look real, they do not feature the same level of superior quality materials or attention to detail, resulting in a somewhat less authentic look and feel.

Set Up & Storage

Balsam Hill provides explicitly detailed and thorough guides for assembling, shaping, and storing all of our artificial Christmas trees. In addition, we provide online video resources that demonstrate exactly how to perform all of these tasks. This makes it quick and convenient to set up and care for our product, which adds to our customers’ overall enjoyable experience. The exquisite quality of our trees also adds to ease in assembly, as each year they maintain all the functionality and beauty of the year before.

In terms of assembly and care, Tree Classics provides only assembly instructions. They offer no additional instructions for shaping and storage. While their trees are relatively easy to manage, customers are not given the same attention and information to guide their efforts.

We believe that Tree Classics is an excellent company, but they are different from Balsam Hill in many ways, as we have discussed. Balsam Hill’s designs are innovative and distinct, while remaining true to nature in look and feel. Tree Classics is traditional and practical, and they offer good quality and design. We hope that this article will aid you in deciding which choice best fits your needs and desires. Above all, we know that whatever tree you choose will help make your holidays special and wonderful, and we send our best wishes for a merry Christmas and happy New Year!

    I would love to win a new tree.We just moved and had to get rid of our old tree

  2. I purchased a 9 foot sale tree in 2012 and it is still gorgeous! I purchased replacement bulbs from you, but it seems you do not have them listed on your website.They were REMAIN CLEAR/GREE BASE KIT -BH. The item number is 65285024190310113. I would so appreciate it if you have these or if you could get these.

    Thank you for making Christmas so special!
