We take a look at the best selling artificial Christmas trees

Who doesn’t love Christmas? The roaring fire, families coming together, beautifully wrapped gifts under a magical Christmas tree. Then, you get a pine needle in your foot and have to vacuum up a whole pile of them daily, whilst remembering to water the tree, and that’s without the worry of the dog deciding to do his business up it.

So, an artificial tree is the solution; clean, cost effective and not as attractive to the family dog. The days of stiff, flimsy, plastic trees are gone. Artificial trees are now more realistic than ever before, and they are growing in popularity. In fact, about 80 percent of homes will opt for an artificial tree this year, compared to only 20 percent of Americans choosing a real, live tree.

But what do you look for in a tree that might be brought out every Christmas for years to come? There are so many options around, we thought we’d give you a helping hand by reviewing the best selling artificial trees in our usual honest and unbiased way.

Going down this route gives you lots of options. Are you looking for a traditional just-cut-from-the-farm tree, a snow swept tree, or a glamorous, bold metallic tree? There is a tree to fit every taste.

If you are aiming for the realistic look, select needles constructed from PVC or PE for a more lifelike effect. Fluff out the branches to check for fullness and shape and check the tips for any sharp points. Will they be strong enough to hold hanging decorations? And lights? Or will you look at pre-lit trees?

Whatever look you decide on, an artificial tree can be an investment, lasting many years, so despite the initial cost, it works out as a yearly saving, both financially and effort wise.

So which Christmas trees made our list?

1) 7 Ft Tinkerbell Silver Tree by Treetopia

Overview

This arrived ahead of schedule, well packaged, with a separate strong box for storage at the end of the holiday season.

What a lovely tree this is – we put it together so easily from the three pieces it arrived in, and once we’d fluffed out the branches, it looked stunning in our home. Although the instructions are simple, it’s pretty obvious how it fits together.

What We Like

The branches are strong enough to hold lights and decorations galore, including quite a large topper. The foldable stand is exceptionally stable and even when we tried, we couldn’t knock it over. This looks so festive, full and every inch of its 7ft height.

What Needs Improving

We found nothing to fault with this beautiful Christmas tree.

9.7Expert Score
The Final Verdict

This is a tree to impress. It’s tall, lush in color, bushy, sturdy, and considering you can use it year after year - it comes at a great price. A great festive center piece for your home.

What We Like

This is a classic tree that you can decorate just how you want it. It gives you the real festive atmosphere. It’s bushy, full figured, and a great price. It’s also fire resistant and hypoallergenic – great news if you’re sensitive.

What Needs Improving

On unpacking it had a slightly plasticky smell, however within an hour or so this had vanished completely.

3) Abusa Pre-lit Artificial Christmas Tree

Overview

This stunning pre-lit tree arrived promptly and in four parts that fitted together easily. The base holds the whole thing good and stable, and the box is sturdy enough to store it away in once the season is over.

What We Like

We set this up in a matter of minutes and being pre-lit there was nothing else to do but add the topper, and a dusting of faux snow. With the real wood trunk, it looks seasonally rustic, and with a variety of styles available, we even considered making an indoor Christmas forest!

What Needs Improving

One of the tiny lights didn’t come on immediately, but once fiddled with, it lit up nicely. Each light is individual, so this didn’t affect the others anyway.

9.0Expert Score
The Final Verdict

If you're looking for the ultimate sustainable Christmas tree for your home, this is it. It comes with everything you need to get that warm festive feeling. It performs well and overall, great value for money.
