National Tree Company Dunhill Fir Christmas Tree
We named the Dunhill Fir from National Tree Company the most realistic tree among the best artificial Christmas trees. Finding an artificial tree that doesn’t look fake can be expensive—even with hacks to help make an artificial tree look fuller—but this tree looks incredibly lifelike. Thanks to its wide, full-bodied branches, you’ll have plenty of space to display all your tree decorations and tree lights. Each branch is individually crafted with needles made of realistic-looking polyvinyl chloride (PVC) that’s both hypoallergenic and fire-resistant, making this a kid- and pet-friendly option.
The 6.5-foot version of the Dunhill Fir typically retails for $280, which is already fair, but it’s on sale for 54% off, meaning it’ll cost you just $129 right now. Other sizes of this fake Christmas tree are marked down, too, so whether you’re looking for a 4-foot tree or a 12-foot tree, you can get it on sale now on Amazon.
Balsam Hill Classic Blue Spruce Christmas Tree
Balsam Hill, a brand known for its quality, comes the Classic Blue Spruce, a lush, dense tree with blue-green and silvery hues and light brown tinted stems for a deep, rich appearance. You can order this classic Christmas tree unlit, pre-lit with white lights or multi-colored lights or outfitted with smart lights. You can also choose from a variety of height options ranging from 4.5 feet to 9 feet. The 7.5-foot option is on sale from $999 to $699 now.
National Tree Company Slim Kingswood Fir Christmas Tree
If you’re looking for a slimmer, yet still realistic, artificial Christmas tree, then the National Tree Company Slim Kingswood Fir is for you. It’s only 30 inches in diameter, so it takes up minimal space in your home or apartment. Plus, its hinged branches are pre-attached to its center and drop down for quick and easy setup.
This tree is currently marked down 53% from its original retail price, so you can get the slim 7.5-foot Christmas tree on sale for under $71.
National Tree Company Pre-Lit Mixed Pine Christmas Tree
This pre-lit pine from National Tree Company is another lifelike option, but with even less work required. This 6.5-foot tree has a slimmer profile and is pre-strung with 400 multi-colored lights. It comes in three sections for quick and easy setup and post-Christmas storage. At 50% off, this is one of the best Christmas tree sales available now.
Glitzhome Pre-Lit Flocked Christmas Tree
If you’re looking to bring a little holiday cheer with almost no work, look no further. This pre-lit flocked tree is 6 feet tall with lush, snowy branches and 300 warm LED lights for a comforting glow. Its slim profile makes it a smart choice for apartments and other small spaces, too. Here are a few tips to flock your Christmas tree.
Right now, you can get it at Lowe’s for just $153. This sale ends November 22, so act fast!
Ashland Pre-Lit White Norway Pencil Christmas Tree
This 7-foot pre-lit tree is another small Christmas tree option, but in a wintery white hue. It’s only 20 inches in diameter, so it’s ideal for adding a little holiday cheer to a tight space (just like half Christmas trees). This tree is pre-lit with 210 clear lights, and it’s easy to shape and assemble. You can get this online-only tree for just $90 at Michael’s.
Home Heritage Pre-Lit Flocked Christmas Tree
We absolutely love this simple, minimalist tree with clear, dimmable fairy lights hidden in its foliage. The lights can be controlled with a remote (included) and come with seven different functions. It stands at 6 feet tall and doesn’t require any tools for assembly. It’s currently 20% off at Target, so that $380 price tag has been cut to $295.
When do artificial Christmas trees go on sale?
Christmas tree sales shift depending on the time of year and the retailer hosting the sales event. Generally, however, you can look for the best Christmas tree deals as early as before Halloween, and especially around Black Friday. You’ll also find deals starting on Christmas Eve into January when retailers are getting rid of old inventory. That means you can stock up on major deals so you’re ready for the next holiday season.
Where should you buy an artificial Christmas tree on sale?
Right now, there are a handful of places running major deals on Christmas trees. Balsam Hill, Lowe’s, Macy’s and Target all have deals on several artificial trees. You can also find sales at other places, like Amazon, Wayfair and West Elm, if your timing is right.
How much do artificial Christmas trees cost?
A high-quality artificial Christmas tree can be an investment, and high-end options can cost thousands of dollars. However, there are good quality options at just a few hundred dollars or less. When you shop for artificial Christmas trees on sale, you can actually save up to several hundred dollars.
