Thomas Harman, CEO of Balsam Hill Artificial Christmas Trees, proved last year that True Needle™ technology is the best way to create realistic artificial Christmas trees. The realistic look of the Balsam Hill trees earned kudos from the Wall Street Journal, NBC’s Today Show and Good Housekeeping.
This year, Balsam Hill looks to keep the buzz going by introducing the Fifth Avenue Flatback Christmas tree, the first True Needle™ tree with a space-saving, slim design. Priced at $399, Christmas tree stands seven feet tall with 400 lights and 1536 premium branch tips. More importantly, its half-back tree shape allows it to rest right up against any wall, saving floor space in narrow areas or tight spaces.
“It’s perfect for our customers who live in apartments in big cities or have smaller living rooms,” states Harman. “Our slender trees give you the option of taking up less floor space, while still having plenty of sturdy, lifelike branches to hang your ornaments.”
While it’s too early to tell if the new half Christmas tree will be a hit, it’s likely that demand will continue to grow. Artificial Christmas tree sales showed a 10% growth year over year in the past five years, according to the National Christmas Tree Association, with U.S. consumers purchasing 9.2 million artificial Christmas trees in that time. With the reusable nature of artificial trees, the market is likely to see even more people turning to them to celebrate the holidays as environmental concerns grow.
