Why an Artificial Christmas Pine Tree is a Better Option

Artificial Christmas pine trees offer a long list of benefits over live trees. The very first one is the fact that you don’t need to cut down a live tree if you go for an artificial option. 

If you are still not convinced, here are some of the main reasons why it makes perfect sense to put up a faux Christmas tree instead of a real tree during the holiday season.

Better Value

It is easy to think that artificial trees are more expensive than real trees if you will just consider the price of using it for just one season. But, the thing with artificial Christmas trees is that they can last for over 10 years while real trees often end up in the trash after just a matter of weeks.

If you will calculate the price of using an artificial Christmas pine tree for a few years, you will realize that in the long run, it will be like having a Christmas tree for free in the many years to come. On top of that, most artificial trees already come with a tree stand and even lights in the case of pre-lit trees, which means more savings for you.  


It is also less likely for artificial Christmas trees to trigger some allergic responses among sensitive members of the family and friends. This makes them different from live pine trees whose foliage and branches usually house mold and dust.

How to Set Up an Artificial Christmas Tree

To ensure that your artificial tree will remain allergy-friendly, see to it that you store it properly when it is not in use to prevent mold and dust from accumulating in it while it is in storage.  

Low Maintenance

Artificial Christmas pine tree are also different from live ones in the sense that you don’t need to water them. Faux trees will also not drop sap or pine needles like the real thing so there is no need for you to spend your precious time cleaning up after them every single day.  

More Convenient

Most artificial Christmas trees are packaged in compact cardboard boxes that can easily fit in most vehicles or can also be delivered directly on your doorsteps. Artificial Christmas pine trees also usually come with the stand meant especially for that specific tree that helps reduce the risk of your tree tripping or leaning over. 

To make things more convenient for you, you can also look for a pre-lit tree for faster clean up and setup time. Most of artificial Christmas trees already come pre-lit that saves you from the frustrating and time-consuming part of having to string Christmas lights so you can go straight into the exciting part of sprucing up your tree. 


Finally, live Christmas trees also tend to dry out and once paired with the Christmas lights, heat may be produced that can pose serious fire hazard. On the other hand, artificial Christmas pine trees are made using fire retardant materials that make them a relatively safer choice for homes. But still, you need to be diligent enough and ensure that you don’t overload your electrical sockets with your Christmas lights.
