Top 5 Artificial Christmas Trees



Welcome to GetMojo, we do the research so you don’t have to! In this video, we’re offering our picks for the 5 best artificial Christmas trees on the market.

We’d all love to have a real spruce or pine Christmas tree in the living room, but it comes with its own set of inconveniences. So for many, an artificial tree is the best option. But it seems like there are as many artificial trees on sale as there are real trees, so where do you start? Well, to help you decide, we’ve sifted through numerous website and consumer reviews to present our 5 recommended products. Okay, first up.

The Front Runner


National Tree Company 7.5 Foot Pre-Lit Artificial Christmas Tree



National Tree Company has pretty much cornered the Christmas tree market, and this 7.5 foot ‘Feel Real’ tree is a great example of why, because this tree has a bit of everything. As well as looking super realistic - being based on a classic douglas fir - this fire resistant tree has pre-hinged branches and pre-strung LED lights that offer soft white light and multi-colored modes. This tree comes highly-recommended pretty much across the board, with review sites Wirecutter and TheSpruce both naming it as their number one artificial Christmas tree pick.

The Collapsible One


BrylaneHome 6 Foot Pre-Lit Pop-Up Christmas Tree



While the idea of a fully-decorated pop-up Christmas tree might be blasphemy for some people, it’s a great option for those that either don’t like decorating or want a quick-to-set-up secondary, or tertiary, tree for their home. And this tree really is pop-up in the truest sense of the word. Able to be set-up in just 60 seconds, this six foot BrylaneHome tree simply mounts onto a stand, clips to the top of a pole and can then be rolled out, pre-lit and ready to shine. We love how this tree can fold away into a compact, wreath-like shape too!

The Outdoor One


Goplus 5 Foot Artificial Christmas Tree



Believe it or not, not all plastic, artificial Christmas trees are weatherproof. But if you do want to garnish your garden with a Christmas tree or two, Goplus makes this waterproof PVC tree. Available in various different sizes, from five to eight feet, and also available in white as well as green, this tree is simple to set-up and it comes with a metal stand for added sturdiness in the wind. Of course, you can also use it indoors as well.

The Wildcard


Vickerman Green Upside Down Tree



Yep, you heard us right. This tree offers a perfectly traditional Christmas tree aesthetic, the twist being that it stands upside down, so a great pick for anyone who wants to mix things up and turn heads. Aside from offering a quirky design, we also love the fact that this tree comes pre-lit with 250 dura-lights. And these lights use microchips which help the lights stay lit even if some bulbs are broken.

Before we reveal our final pick, here are a few other great products that you might want to consider:

The Big One


National Tree Company 12 Foot Pre-Lit Christmas Tree



We’re back with National Tree Company again as we go big, with this 12 foot Christmas tree being ideal for those who want to make an impact - and of course, for those who have high ceilings. Similar to the 7.5 foot model we mentioned earlier, this ultra-realistic tree is filled with convenience features, like hinged branches and pre-strung lights - the latter of which are designed to keep shining even if a bulb goes out. The big difference with this tree is of course its size, standing at a whopping 12 feet tall and 80 inches in diameter at the bottom.

So which artificial Christmas tree should you choose? Well, we guess a big part of it is how long you like to spend decorating. Things like pre-hinged branches and pre-slung lights can save you tons of time - the extreme being a pop-up tree that takes no time at all. So make sure you’re buying a tree that aligns with your time-to-decorate expectations.
