What should I know about pre-lit Christmas trees before I buy?

Before You Buy

Before you purchase a pre-lit Christmas tree, consider the following information before you buy.

  • How do the branches and needles look? You don't want to buy an artificial pre-lit Christmas tree that looks fake.
  • Is the tree durable? Are the pieces made of plastic or metal? Is it a heavy-duty plastic that will stand up to wear and tear over the years?
  • Check out the lights on the pre-lit tree to see how they are attached. Some pre-lit trees are lit with strands of lights that wrap around the tree. Others have the lights attached with just the lights showing and are secured to the tree by a professional. Look for lights that are attached snugly.
  • Is there a warranty?
