All About Artificial Trees

Most business owners love to add some touch of greenery in their interior (and even exterior) spaces but they lack the time to allot for its maintenance. Fortunately, artificial plants, flowers, and trees offer the best solution to the problem. There is no need of watering like live foliage requires, yet they provide aesthetic and psychological benefits like their real counterparts. Artificial trees, for example, add exotic ornamental glamour and colour to any space, plus, they do not wither and are very low maintenance.

If you’re searching for the best artificial trees in 2018 to add to your space, you’ll have to realise that even the most basic understanding of landscaping make it easier for you to make a decision. Therefore, to make sure that you’ll be choosing the best type of artificial tree for your interior or exterior needs, you need to consider different aspects which include size, quality, and material. You also need to look at how it will fit within your existing design.  

Important Features to Consider When Choosing Artificial Trees

When looking for the most realistic artificial tree, there are certain key features that you must consider. These trees can last for a long time. It’s good to look for the most perfect one in order to enjoy a rewarding artificial tree experience. Here are some factors to consider:

Number of Branch Tips

The number of branch tips is usually connected to how real the fake tree will look. The more the tips a particular tree will have, the more real it will appear. 

Type of Branches

The type of branches that your artificial tree has affect the arrangement and assembly of the tree after purchasing. Some trees have hinged branches while others have the ones that need to be screwed in. The one with hinged branches is easier when it comes to assembly.

Material Used

Artificial trees are made of polyethylene and/or PVC. Polyethylene is usually considered as posing fewer health dangers than PVC. It is therefore good to go for a suitable combination or alternative that will balance realism and environmental or health concerns. 

Assembly, Disassembly, and Storage

You need a tree that will be easy to assemble and disassemble. If the tree provides you with a hard time fitting it back to the box for storage, it may not be worth your efforts.


Depending on where you want to put your artificial tree, the height, width, and girth are important specifications that you need to consider. You also need to consider displaying a unique, natural-looking artificial tree using specifications that are unique to your specific circumstances.


It is easier to think that since you’re purchasing fake trees and may dispose it later on, you’ll have to opt for the cheaper variants. However, you’ll realise soon enough that you’re actually compromising the image of your brand. Most clients and customer nowadays evaluate the companies’ reputation by how their business offices’ look and when you choose cheap artificial foliage that exudes “fakeness”, it may actually convey a negative message.
It’s better to invest on artificial trees that do not only enhance your office’s character and promote your brand, but can also last longer without spending too much of a fortune. 

And this list is what it’s all about.

Design Tips (and Hacks) for Artificial Trees

Once you’ve decided on the artificial tree for your space, you can now arrange them according to your personal preferences, according to the display areas and according to the existing design. It is therefore important to ensure that your trees are arranged properly to bring out the best of them. Here are a few things that you should remember when putting up designs for your artificial trees:

  • Check with your supplier if the artificial plant you purchased is UV protected. If not, avoid displaying them on areas with direct sunlight for a long period of time. Direct sun will expose the stalks and leaves to the effects of UV rays which can, for prolonged exposure, damage the tree or even cause discolouration. 
  • Avoid displaying your artificial tree in an area that will expose them to prolonged wetness. Wetness for a long period will damage your trees.
  • Wipe the tree leaves, constantly dust them off and remove any foreign materials that can settle on them. This is to keep your artificial trees in perfect condition. Whether your trees are displayed outdoors or indoors, they should be cleaned regularly to make them last longer and maintain their beauty and splendor. 
  • To enhance stiffness, most of the artificial trees have steel and wires in the stems, trunks and leaves. A little exposure to water or rain does not damage them. However, caution should be taken to ensure that these materials are not damaged over time.
