Artificial Christmas Trees: Faux And Fabulous

Artificial Christmas TreesArtificial Christmas trees have come a long way from the pure, sometimes dreadful and sometimes charming, fakery of a few decades ago.

Of course, the greatest thing about getting an artificial Christmas tree is that you’ll save money. If you’re thinking of switching this year, remember artificial trees don’t smell like the real thing. Remember, too, that you’ll need storage room for your fake Xmas trees after Christmas.

Artificial Xmas trees and their genuine counterparts are one of the most popular traditions associated with the celebration of Christmas. Traditionally, the real and later the artificial tree was not brought in and decorated until Christmas Eve, and then removed the day after twelfth night; to have a tree put up before or after these dates was considered bad luck. Artificial trees are very popular, particularly in the US, where despite their lack of realism, they are considered more convenient and less expensive than a real Xmas tree.

What is the origin of the artificial Xmas tree? These Christmas trees appeared in Germany towards the end of the 1800s as a way to save native forests. Metal wire Christmas trees were covered with goose, turkey, ostrich or swan feathers. The feathers on these trees were often dyed green to imitate pine needles! The Addis Brush Company created the first artificial-brush Christmas tree in the 1930s, using the same machinery that made their toilet brushes!

There are two distinct differences between live trees and artificial ones: tradition and convenience. That said; a fake tree might be the perfect solution for holiday decorating. Ease of setup and maintenance, discount prices, health concerns and even fashion are all factors that may play into the decision to abandon a real tree for a faux facsimile. Artificial trees are relatively cheap and have evolved over the years.

How Do Artificial Christmas Trees Compare?

Review Of Faux Trees Compared To Real Ones

  • When you buy an artificial tree it will last longer than a real tree
  • Studies have shown that the artificial models for sale are usually thrown out after ten years
  • You can feel safer when you purchase the artificial trees because they are not a fire hazard
  • Designer models such as Fraser Fir and Hamilton Spruce can be found online
  • Unique predecorated and prelit models are available for the best price
  • Artificial trees are generally inexpensive, because they are made of cheap materials, whereas many live trees are of poor quality and can deteriorate quickly
  • Decorative tinsel can be added to make your tree look special
  • Artificial trees don’t litter the floor with pine needles like real trees do
  • If you don’t like the smell of pine artificial trees won’t bother you or cause allergies
  • If you do like the smell of pine you can buy a special pine spray for your tree
  • Artificial trees can’t rot like real trees can
  • Artificial trees are easy to assemble and store away
  • Artificial trees don’t weigh much

Nothing symbolizes the holiday like shopping for a Christmas tree, whether real or fake. Shopping online for trees is easy, and higher quality synthetic materials and assembly techniques make for more authentic looking trees than those of the past and you can choose trees from a variety of species, from fir to evergreen to spruce. And best of all, artificial trees are affordable: the upfront cost of an artificial tree is often greater than that of a real one, but after just a few years’ use you will begin saving money.
