Captivated by the beauty of balsam trees? Upgrade to an artificial version for the Christmas holiday. This bountiful fir tree species typically grows up to 60 feet in its natural climate setting, making balsam trees a towering presence in the forest. Luckily, you can enjoy scaled down versions of these trees in your home. The quirky symmetrical spires of the tree tips are one reason to admire them. You may also be a fan of their lush girth, which provides plenty of space for creative holiday tree decorating ideas.

Balsam trees are suitable for all traditional decorative themes that combine your favorite ornaments with Christmas bulbs, garlands, ribbons and tree toppers. Mix hard and soft ornaments to create a unique Christmas tree that reflects your personal taste. The best thing about artificial balsam trees is that they last a long time when preserved in storage.
