Our Balsam Hill tree bought in 2014 has a section (the upper middle one) now out as of last year.. It's no longer under warranty though. We spent like $400 on it and it's a lot more now.Help! For those with artificial, do you have pre-lit or add lights? I have a Balsam Hill pre-lit and three branches will not light up. Sooooo frustrating. I've adjusted, checked every bulb, wiggled the branches and cannot find any loose connections. This was a new purchase in 2020 and it is still under warranty but the idea of sending it back is just too much trouble. We bought a 2nd home with cathedral ceilings and now I'm thinking I shouldn't invest in a very expensive BH tree again. Our 7 ft pre-lit was $400 but the 12 ft BH run upward of $2000.
I'm not opposed to real but we haven't had the best luck as most of our ornaments are too heavy and they don't stay on the branches very well.
Fake. Mine is short, assembles from two halves, and has some lights, but I add decorations to it.
One year I saw some odd fake trees, I think at Big Lots. They were lazily-welded metal, bare branched trees that were spray-painted white. It was a depressing tree yearning to gouge out some eyes. Fortunately red is a Christmas color, and I'm sure that would add some accent to this sad tree.
