Finding a good quality, artificial Christmas Tree that you'll be proud of for years to come, can be a challenge. Taking the time to drive from store to store, viewing the selection of Christmas trees, and then trying to remember what each store had can be very frustrating. Plus, paying the high markups that occur with traditional stores can be expensive as well.
However, there is an alternative. Shopping online for Christmas trees allows you to easily browse a store's wide selection, quickly compare prices, immediately place your order. Instead of hauling the Christmas tree to your home from the store, you'll find it delivered straight to your door.
If you're looking for a specific type of Christmas tree - for example, a tall and thin Christmas tree, or a short Christmas tree with multi-colored lights - your chances of finding it online, hassle free, are much greater than trying to shop at stores across town. Retail stores usually stock the Christmas trees that will sell the most - not trees that cater to specific needs.
Before you start your Christmas tree shopping effort, you may want to consider the following important factors in your approach:
Selection. How wide and vast is the Christmas Tree Selection? A large selection of Christmas Trees will increase your chances of finding the perfect tree to suit your preferences and budget.
Return Policy. In the event that your Christmas Tree arrives and is different than you expected, will you be able to return it hassle-free?
Cost. How do the prices for Christmas Trees between competitors compare? Are you going to get a great price, or pay a premium?

Christmas Central, has as wide variety of Christmas Trees in stock. Looking at their selection, it seems that they have unique trees that are not offered on many websites reviewed. However, the website is more cluttered than others, making it more challenging to actually search through their selection. There is a lot of text on the home page to manage through and could be a turn-off for many.

Christmas Central has a good selection of Trees, but have an average website including poor search options and a tight return policy with a less than favorable restock fee. Outside of their colored tree selection, we didn't find any good reasons to choose Christmas Central over those higher ranked.
6.5 foot Hunter Full Pre-Lit Christmas Tree with white lights - $369.95
Christmas Lights Etc seems to be an excellent option for wholesale and commercial buyers and an average option for the everyday buyer. They have a large selection of Christmas Trees and many other products geared only for those needing for commercial reasons. Some of those products are Christmas Trees up to 100 ft, lighted pole decorations, and large outdoor decorations.
In the About Us section, they list some major TV networks and National newspapers that they have been featured on. Many of the notable customers listed are national brands including Macy's, The Walt Disney Company, Six Flags, Sea World and much more. This would lend us to believe they are a reputable company, used by many large companies to outfit their Christmas needs.
Free shipping is offered on Christmas Trees priced over $95. There are some exclusions, check the website for more information if you find a product you're interested in.
There is a 30-day money back guarantee with a 10% restocking fee. No returns are allowed after Christmas Day, even if it is within the 30-day window. Please check the website for more details as there are stipulations to the return policy.
The biggest complaint that we had about the website was the difficulty in finding the return policy and the customer service information. Most companies reviewed have an easy to find tab or link that will take you to a page answering many customer service questions. There is no such link from the main page of this website. We even tried chatting live with a customer service representative, to have our questions answered,
and even though it said someone was online, after a few minutes of waiting for an answer, no one ever responded. We eventually found the customer service section while stumbling through some back pages on the website.
Due to the poorly organized customer service information and the fact that the company seems to cater more to the Commercial client, Christmas Lights Etc received a below than average rating as it would not meet the needs of most of our shoppers.

Piles of old Christmas trees are stacked up along Brackley Beach to fill in what are known as blow out areas where sand has drifted away.
