    What is the latest technology for making artificial trees more realistic?

    Which is the most realistic artificial Christmas tree? 

    ‘Artificial Christmas trees are looking more realistic than ever before due to the increased use of injection moulding. Which is when real pine needles are expertly copied and replicated using PE (Polyethylene)’ explains tree expert David Sumner, Online Sales Manager at Christmas Tree World.

    ‘The use of injection moulding has meant that ever more realistic-looking Christmas trees are available to customers. This technology can look so realistic that sometimes even a close-up inspection, along with touching and feeling the foliage, isn’t always an instant giveaway.’

    ‘Historically, strips of PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) have been cut into thin strips to represent the foliage on real Christmas trees. From a distance, it is very difficult to tell whether a tree is artificial or real from this technique, and it is only on closer inspection that the flattened squared off PVC can be seen. This continues to be a popular style for many people who are looking for affordable realistic trees, hence it is still used in our Arbor Vitae & Mountain Pine Christmas Trees.’

    What’s the best way to store an artificial Christmas tree to keep it looking good?

    Quite simply, the best way to store the dismantled tree is in the original box to save on excess packaging. However, if you have larger storage boxes or containers these are ideal, to make access easier. As long as you keep the branches flat and un-squashed, your tree should last you for years to come. Store in a cool, dry space to preserve the condition. In recent years many companies have created handy Christmas tree storage bags.

    When is the best time to buy an artificial Christmas tree?

    A question frequently asked of Google. And the answer is reported to be Black Friday, because of the savings and the proximity to Christmas. The smart thing about buying a discounted artificial Christmas tree is that you can afford to buy the bigger or ‘better’ tree because your budget will go further. All of the trees above will have been full price in the months prior to Black Friday, and soon they will return to the RRP once the seasonal sale is over.
