Artificial Christmas Tree Buying Guide

Christmas is just a couple weeks away, do you have your Christmas Tree up yet? Have you unpacked your old tree only to find it damaged or missing parts? This is the perfect year to pick out the perfect artificial tree for your home and family that will last for years to come.

We unpacked our Christmas tree of 16 years this season and realized that it was getting a little shabby. We bought it when we were newlyweds, it was time to upgrade with a tree that suits our family.

We choose our tree from Tree Classics. They have been in business since 1976 – the year I was born – offering the “World’s Finest Artificial Christmas Trees”.

From each category, Tree Classics offers many trees to choose from including Fraser Fir, Blue Spruce, Kennedy Fir, Oregonian Slim, Aspen Spruce, Clifton Pine, White Fir, and so many more.

2) Choose the Tree Size and Shape

To determine the best Christmas tree size, you need to consider the room it will be in, height of ceilings, in a corner or next to a doorway or wall, etc. You will also want to consider if you want it to be the centerpiece of the entire room or an accent.  If you are like me, you want the biggest tree possible for the room. If so, be sure the tree measures 6″ or less than the height of your ceiling.  For a standard 8 or 9′ ceiling, a 7 or 7-1/2′ tree works well.


Tree Classics offers three shapes to fit any home: regular/full, narrow/slim, and flatback.

3) Decide on Christmas Tree Foliage


Tree Classics offers a three needle types to choose from:

  • Real Feel (PE) – for a realistic-looking tree with needles that are full and lush. (pictured above)
