If you’re tired of sweeping up pine needles or remembering to water the tree, it’s time for an artificial tree this Christmas. An artificial tree takes the hassle out of decking the halls. It lasts the entire holiday season and can last for years if you take care of it and properly store it. Yes, artificial trees are more expensive than the initial price of a fresh-cut tree, but you’ll save money in the long run. And right now, you can save big on tons of artificial Christmas trees. Several big-box retailers are launching their Black Friday deals early, and we’ve spotted a lot of artificial trees in the mix, from designer trees over 50 percent off to trees under $50. Take a look at our top picks below and treat yourself to a new tree this Christmas.

Tree Terms to Know

  • Hooked: Trees with hooked branches must be assembled with every branch featuring a hook that fits into a hole in the tree trunk. These are cheaper than hinged trees and require keeping track of the various tree branch sizes to correctly put the tree together.
  • Hinged: Trees with hinged branches are already attached to the tree trunk and don’t require individual branch assembly. These branches just fold out for faster setup. But unlike hooked systems, the tree itself will be larger to break down and store after Christmas.
  • Flocked: Trees with a frosted snow-like appearance. These branches feature a white powder coating that mimics freshly fallen snow.
  • Downswept: Trees with branches that curve downward. Downswept trees are often more expensive, but feature a more realistic branch pattern.
  • Prelit: A tree with branches already strung in lights. Some prelit trees are even outfitted with color options so you can change from white to multicolor with a simple touch of a button.
  • LED: Prelit trees with LED light bulbs. These are very, very bright and great for window displays. But they don’t necessarily have that warm, cozy candle-lit vibe.

Christmas Trees on Sale at Wayfair

Even if you don’t know much about Christmas tree types, you’ve probably heard one name: Douglas fir. Everyone wants a Douglas fir. They’re the peonies of the Christmas tree world, and they’re expensive even the fake ones! That’s because fir trees really are very pretty. They’re dense like spruce, but there’s a more feathered texture in the branches. If you’re in the market for a faux fir, there are some great deals at Wayfair. In addition to the brand’s Early Black Friday sale, you can snag select fir trees and other Christmas trees nearly 50 percent off!
