Christmas Tree Lights
Beautiful LED and Incandescent Lights
A benefit in pre lit Christmas trees is the time and energy saved in not having to wrap and unwrap light strings around the tree branches. Pre lit Christmas trees are available with clear or multi colored bulbs, and if one bulb burns out, the rest will remain lit. Lighting options available:
- Clear or Multicolor Incandescent Bulbs - traditional glow
- Warm White or Multicolor 5MM LED Bulbs - energy saving, long lasting, and designed to display warmth and elegance
Light counts vary within each tree size, shape, and collection. Some trees offer incredibly high light counts, but all prelit trees are beautifully illuminated for the best holiday tree possible.
Christmas Tree Size and Shape
Pencil, Slender, Medium, Full
Measure the space for your holiday tree. Tree heights range from 4.5' up to 14' in pre lit Christmas trees, and widths can be pencil thin for tight spaces, or full for larger areas. Height is measured from the floor to the tree top, and leave 6" - 12" space for a tree topper. To place gifts beneath the tree, consider a style with ample space beneath, such as our Colorado Pine pre lit Christmas trees.

Tip Count and Construction
Realistic TruTip™ Needles and Hinged Branches
TruTip Christmas Tree Needles
Hinged Branch Construction
Higher tip counts result in fuller trees with lots of ornament hanging tips. Prelit trees featuring TruTip™ design also boast PE/PVC molded tips with multiple color pigments for the most realistic natural look. Tip count and construction makes a difference in an artificial Christmas tree that will last for many years and retain its realistic appearance.
Expandable branches allow for the fullest fluffing, and all our pre lit Christmas trees feature strong hinged construction. Sturdy metal bases hold trunks securely in place, and bases won't bend or buckle after years of use.
Decorating Pre Lit Christmas Trees
Trees for Hanging Ornaments
Trimming the tree is a family tradition in most houses, and each ornament has a story. Consider ornaments that will be hung when choosing your tree.
Ornament hanging trees worth noting:
- Best for Hanging Lots of Ornaments: The Brighton Fir is a dense tree with staggered offshoots to provide lots of hanging space
- Best for Showcasing Treasured Ornaments: The Fraser Fir and Canadian Fir have open spaces and bark wrapped interiors for showcasing larger ornaments
- Best for Hanging Heavy Ornaments: The Sequoia Fir has extra durable tip and branch construction for hanging heavier ornaments
