How long do artificial trees usually last?
According to Old World Christmas, the average artificial tree can last for up to six years. So obviously if you pick one up in a sale over the Black Friday and Cyber Monday weekend, it’s going to be even more effective in terms of cost per use.
As always, if you’re wanting a long-lasting product it’s good to do your research before. Check out product reviews and star ratings given by other customers. Read product descriptions too, to see if there’s any 2, 3, 4 or even 5 year guarantee – so you’ve got an idea on how long it should last. And remember that if it turns up and you’re not happy with it – there’s a return label for a reason.
Some retailers also offer warranties on artificial trees – so if you’re about longevity, be sure to pick one up that has a 3 year+ warrantee. Just in case there’s any unfortunate accidents or breakages.
How to care for your artificial tree this Christmas:
Artificial trees are obviously a lot less maintenance compared to the real thing. That said, there are a few things you can do to ensure it looks new year after year.
The most important thing to consider with artificial trees is heat. We’d advise against putting your tree near a radiator – or corner where heat sits – as this can ultimately melt the PVC tips. This in turn will lead to dis-colouring and affect their ability to hold heavier Christmas baubles.
Of course it goes without saying that a careful and delicate approach to taking it down and packing it away will help its durability too. If it’s a pre-lit one, be sure to untangle all leads before putting away. You’ll thank yourself for it next year!
