Looking for the perfect Christmas tree for your holiday space? The most popular sizes are right here at Hayneedle, plus you’ll find a full range of heights from under 4 feet to 14 feet and up.
If you don't feel like busting out the tape measure but you're not sure about your preferred size, a tree in the 6-6.5 feet range is a safe choice. This is our second most popular size range. It's a versatile height for smaller or irregular rooms, or for maintaining proportion in an already busy Christmas decor.7-7.5 feet
Our most popular artificial Christmas trees are in the 7-7.5 feet range. This size is big enough to qualify as large, but not so big that it overwhelms a typical room. A standard ceiling is eight to nine feet high, so a tree of this size would still leave room for a decorative tree topper.9-9.5 Feet
For great rooms with a vaulted ceiling, trees in the 9-9.5 feet range would provide a suitable measure of Christmas splendor. No matter what size you settle on, you should leave at least six to 12 inches between the treetop and ceiling.
This is the most lifelike shape, and the best option if you want a true focal-point tree. Most full Christmas trees in the popular 7-7.5 foot size range are about 56 to 64 inches in base width.Medium
This is a more tapered shape that still maintains the appeal of a natural-looking form. A greater proportion of our tall Christmas trees come in medium shapes, including those 7-7.5 feet tall and those that are 10 to 14 feet high or bigger.Slim
These slender forms are ideal for small spaces, and include modern pencil Christmas trees in flocked and colored styles.
The classic choice for the traditional Christmas interior. These trees are unlit, allowing your family to get creative with lights, ornaments, glitter, and other Christmas tree decorations. Our selection features trees inspired by genuine fir, spruce, and pine tree species, lending a little outdoor magic to your seasonal display. Silver or spiral topiary styles offer tradition with a twist.Flocked
Flocking is artificial snow, which gives limbs a frosted or snow-covered appearance. Our flocked Christmas trees avoid all the DIY fuss with permanent, high-quality flocking that enhances the holiday spirit in a traditional winter style. If you're a warm-climate dweller who's dreaming of a white Christmas, put a flocked tree on this season's wish list.
Colored holiday trees are another seasonal trend that's gaining in popularity. Bold colors such as purple, blue, pink, gold, and black can dramatically revamp your seasonal display or provide a standout centerpiece for Christmas parties. White, silver, gold, and red are alternative colors that would still be suitable for traditional holiday interiors.Pre-lit
Today's pre-lit trees are a breeze to assemble and disassemble. The lights remain on the tree, eliminating the daunting task of untangling and re-stringing lights year after year. They're also offered in several light color options including clear and multi-colored incandescent bulbs as well as longer-lasting LED lights.
It may look quirky, but the upside down Christmas tree has some serious practical benefits. Its reduced footprint is convenient for saving space, and it increases the visibility of hanging ornaments. It's also more traditional than you'd think. In Eastern Europe, hanging Christmas trees upside down is a centuries-old tradition. Our contemporary designs can be hung from the ceiling or placed on the floor if a stand is included.Tabletop
Tabletop trees are an increasingly common sight in holiday decors, and the most space-efficient option you'll find. They're also a great choice if you want a purely decorative display rather than a gather-round-the-presents tree. These styles range from about 2.5 to 4.5 feet in height, a good size for small spaces.
Until recently, PVC or polyvinyl chloride is what most artificial Christmas trees were constructed from with needles cut from colored sheets of compressed PVC.
PE, or molded tip, artificial Christmas trees often have PVC needles incorporated into their construction and design. Mixed branches create a very full, authentic look that is typically more life-like.
Polyethylene is injected into a molding system to create more authentic branches and needles. These molded polymer needles have the thickness and density of a real tree branch for a more realistic look as opposed to the flat needles on the PVC Christmas trees.
