Types of Artificial Trees
When it comes to artificial trees the choice can be overwhelming therefore, so we’ve collated a few further tips for you below.
Some artificial trees use a ‘hooked’ construction method, where each branch has to be attached to the centre pole. But for the finest quality trees, like ours – setup is made even simpler with specially hinged branches. Pre-attached to the trunk, hinged branches are pre-folded flat, ready to fold out to give your tree a fabulously full profile.
The quality of an artificial tree is often judged by its appearance and determined by its overall fullness, quantity of branch tips and the design of its foliage. The more realistic it is in looking like a real Christmas tree, the more high-end it’s likely to be. Artificial trees with premium 3D moulded PE (polyethylene) tips are often the most realistic, as they’re made from moulds of authentic tree branches. However, the tip styles and quality of PVC has advanced significantly to appear more authentic than ever. Therefore, whilst the style of tree is often down to personal choice, a mix of both PE and PVC tips offers realism in a budget-friendly style too.
Whilst the simplicity of a beautiful unlit tree gives you the freedom to get creative with different lighting styles and decorations, there are also other artificial tree types which are increasingly popular.
