All of the trees that I used in the barn this year were from Balsam Hill. Once I found this company just three years ago, I haven't looked anywhere else for my artificial Christmas trees, wreaths and garlands. They are, and this is my own unpaid, unbiased opinion, the BEST source for all things Christmas.
I had so many trees and garlands in the barn. That's what a showhouse at Christmas deserves, right? And Balsam Hill did not let me down with their amazing trees of supreme quality!
Balsam Hill trees are extremely realistic looking. I can't even begin to tell you how many people asked me if the garlands and trees were live! Built with their patented true needle technology, the trees have more tips and lights than any other trees available online or in stores.
I used their Tannenbaum Tree trio, their 9' Sonoma Slim pencil tree, their 7.5' Vermont White Spruce tree, multiple Vermont White Spruce garlands, and some ornament trees (so cool!).
Each of the trees were remarkably beautiful - and not just AFTER they were decorated. They came out of the box with very little fluffing necessary. But once I was done getting them perfectly fluffed, (using their awesome, super soft gloves), and decorated - they were THE most beautiful trees of the whole tour. Plus, after the tour was over - they were SUPER easy to store. Balsam Hill provides you with durable tree storage bags with every purchase, so no more fighting to get those trees back in a box!
I went a little crazy with my trees this year, using large tree branches in the trees to give a real "forest" look. The trees ended up being incredibly architectural and sculptural, and honestly, I think that if I had gone with any other tree but the amazing quality of the Balsam Hill trees, they would have toppled over and been a huge mess!
