What is a Fibre Optic Christmas Tree? Let’s Make Your Christmas Magical

Fibre Optic Christmas Tree

Christmas is coming, so now is a good time to start thinking about getting your Christmas tree ready.

The centrepiece of holiday décor, a lot of households have struggled to decide whether to invest in a real or artificial Christmas tree. In recent years, many households have opted for an artificial tree as it is a more convenient option because they create less mess, can be used for many years, and are good value for money.

But were you aware that a Fibre Optic Christmas Tree is the most straightforward and affordable festive alternative?

In this blog post, we will be highlighting what makes these artificial trees so unique, plus sharing some of our décor ideas with you.

What is a Fibre Optic Christmas Tree?

The Fibre Optic Christmas Tree is an excellent way to spread holiday cheer in your home without needing to remove fallen pine needles.

Using LED technology rather than halogen, fibre optic Christmas trees have plastic optic fibres to transfer light from one end to the other with the use of a central bulb, resulting in a spectacular display of festive lights with colour changing or flashing sequences by plugging your Christmas tree into a socket to allow the branch ends to glow in various colours.

Are Fibre Optic Christmas Trees Safe?

Because they don't use UV rays or increased temperatures, these kinds of trees are safe to use around the entire family. The trees are among the safest because they only emit light, not heat.

Are Fibre Optic Christmas Trees Expensive to Run?

Fibre Optic Christmas Trees, which use 10 times less electricity than standard Christmas bulbs, are said to be particularly energy-efficient as they use light emitting diodes. 

Can You Decorate a Fibre Optic Christmas Tree?

A few of our fibre optic Christmas trees come pre-decorated, but you can add decorations to the ones that are not already decorated to go alongside their pre-lit light display.

But because the tree's flexible plastic branches can only support a limited amount of weight, it's important to pick the appropriate decorations. Like a real tree, you probably won't want to use as many decorations because too many would cover the lights and bend the branches.

Top Fibre Optic Christmas Tree Benefits

Most people consider using a real Christmas tree every year as visiting your local seller, browsing the choices of fresh trees available, and securing the tree on top of the car to be taken home for decorating with the family has become a life-long tradition. However, it can be a hassle regularly clearing up the needles that will fall during the tree's time in your home, plus figuring out the best way to dispose of it when the festive season is over. 

At Garden Trends, we suggest purchasing a Fibre Optic Christmas Tree as they offer a host of benefits.

  1. Cost-Effective:If budget is a major concern this year and investing in a real tree will be too expensive, a Fibre Optic Christmas Tree is an affordable price option. When you buy a real tree, you will replace it every holiday season, so you will pay a significant amount of money each year. By purchasing a Fibre Optic Christmas Tree, you will only need to pay once without breaking the bank and they will last for years to come.
  2. No Maintenance: Real Christmas trees need daily attention and care, which means watering the tree regularly and clearing away any fallen needles. With a Fibre Optic Christmas Tree, you won't need to do this and you will not have to worry about it drying out.
  3. Easy to Transport & Store: Owning a Fibre Optic Christmas Tree is easier than a real tree as it is simple to transport and store them due to their smaller size and light weight, so you will be able to keep your tree safe in the attic or garage instead of disposing it when the festive season comes to end and use again next year.
  4. Strong Durability: Because Fibre Optic Christmas Trees do not require maintenance and do not dry out, they can remain displayed for a long amount of time, so you will be able to enjoy your tree for many Christmases to come.
  5. Appearance: It can be tricky to fit real trees in small rooms and enclosed areas, making it harder to choose the correct one for your home. Our Fibre Optic Christmas Trees, which range in size from 2ft to 7ft, are available with a number of vibrant colours and designs to complement any space or décor.
  6. Energy Efficiency: The LED bulbs in our Fibre Optic Christmas Trees use less power than classic bulbs, making them more energy efficient.
