4 High-Tech Holiday Tree Options

Reading Time: 3 minutes

The holiday season is almost here. That means lights, decorations, and for many people, a holiday tree. And while live trees are beautiful, they have a shorter lifespan and are more difficult to maintain compared to artificial holiday trees. 

So, you may want to consider upgrading your holiday tree to a high-tech tree that can elevate the festive vibes while making decorating easy. But where to start? We’ve got some tips and options if you’re interested in switching to a high-tech holiday tree.

What to Consider When Shopping for a High-Tech Holiday Tree

There are a host of features you need to keep in mind when shopping for an artificial high-tech holiday tree. Here are a few you should consider:

  • Size: You need to ensure the holiday tree you choose can fit in the designated spot in your home or business. You should leave about six inches between the top of your tree and your ceiling. 
  • Shape: Artificial holiday trees range from compact to full to wide. Your choice depends on the space and your personal preference. Consider the widest point of the tree to determine if it will fit in your space. 
  • Tree type: Christmas trees have come a long way to look more realistic. You can now choose from spruce, pine, and fir. Choices are also available based on density, sparsity of branches, and type of branch ends. 
  • Ease of setup: Since artificial tree makers compress them into boxes for shipping, fluffing them up is one of the most consuming tasks during assembly. Try to choose a high-tech artificial tree that’s easy to set up. 
  • Durability and Safety: There are certain industry standards when considering the durability of your Christmas tree. These include ASTM B117 for corrosion testing and ASTM F963 for child safety testing.
