What type of Christmas tree should I buy?
These days, there are tons of different Christmas trees available on the market. What type of “tree personality” do you have — classic, modern, monochromatic, colourful? Do you want to have the same type of Christmas tree every year? Are you prepared to maintain a real evergreen in your home?
We break down different types of Christmas trees in the table below to help you decide which one is right for you:
Should I get a real or artificial Christmas tree?
Fresh evergreen smell
Good if you want to move away from fake, mass-produced decor
Doesn’t require long-term storage
Typically less expensive than an artificial tree
May leak sap, making it sticky to handle
Needs to be watered regularly
Drops needles, which could be hazardous to pets and young children
Cannot be reused
Can be reused; no need to shop for a new tree every year
Doesn’t need to be watered and doesn’t leak sap or drop needles
Available at many retailers
Lacks a fresh, evergreen scent
Usually more expensive than a real tree
Can collect dust and develop a musty smell if not stored properly
Usually requires assembly
What type of artificial Christmas tree should I get?
Good if you prefer classic Christmas decor
Natural colour suits a wide range of indoor spaces
Good base colour for different types of decorations; not stuck to one theme
Widely available in stores
Not very unique
Not good if you prefer modern decor
Good if you’re sick and tired of traditional Christmas decor
Allows you to try new, unique ways of decking out for the holidays
Potentially be more difficult to decorate a non-traditional tree
Often considered a novelty item and subsequently priced higher than green trees
Not as widely available as green trees
Not as universally appealing (if you’re decorating a public place or inviting people over for a party)
Good if you prefer a traditional Christmas tree silhouette
Makes a big visual impact
Takes up a lot of room; may not be suitable for apartments.
Physically harder to assemble than a smaller, narrower tree
Heavier to move
Fits well into small or tight spaces
Good if you want minimal Christmas decorations
Physically easier to move and decorate
Doesn’t have the same visual impact as a wide tree
Not as widely sold as traditional, wide trees
May not be as appealing to children and people who love traditional Christmas decor
Can use whatever type of lights you want (solid, blinking, coloured, white, LED etc.)
Easier to replace burnt out lights or entire sections of dead lights than it would be with a pre-lit tree
Less expensive than a pre-lit tree
Have to physically add/remove lights
Have to deal with tangled light strands
Lights strings can easily get detached when people or pets make contact with the tree
Don’t have to deal with tangled light strands
Massive time saver
Less physically demanding
Lights are well-placed as part of the tree’s manufacturing process (no awkward decorating here!)
Inconvenient when lights or light sections go dead (although many pre-lit trees are wired so that, if one bulb goes out, the rest of the string will remain unaffected)
Harder to customize the tree
Lends a grand appearance to any space
Different to the types of Christmas trees most people have
Can permit more fullness
Requires a high ceiling or must be used outdoors
Hard to decorate the top of the tree
More expensive than traditionally-sized trees
Can be hard to move and set up
Fits better in small or tight spaces; good for bedrooms or personal work areas
Less expensive than traditionally-sized trees
Easy to decorate (no straining to reach the top!)
Can easily be moved or toppled by mischievous toddlers or energetic pets!
May be a little underwhelming for Christmas enthusiasts who love being surrounded by holiday decor
Depending on the retailer, you may not have as many options to choose from
What to look for when shopping for a Christmas tree
Shopping for the perfect Christmas tree is about more than simply finding a decent-looking evergreen at the right price. Consider the following points when browsing online or in stores:
For pre-lit trees, read the description to make sure that — if one light goes out — the rest of the lights will stay lit. Make sure you have spare light bulbs on hand to replace any that go dead.
Note the number of tips on the tree. The more tips there are, the fuller the tree will look. This is important if you dread coming home with a tree that looks better in its picture than its does in real life.
Pay attention to the tree’s diameter, which reflects the width of the tree at its widest point. This is crucial for determining if a given tree will fit in your space.
For artificial (fake) trees, what type of real-life tree is it modelled after? Most artificial trees are designed to look like real trees, which can vary in needle thickness, colour and spread. For example, fir trees have smooth, hardy branches and somewhat flattened needles. Spruce trees have rough wooden branches, soft needles and cones that are flexible to the touch. The needles on pine trees are attached to branches in clusters and its cones are both strong and rigid.
