Your Guide to Choosing the perfect Pre-Lit Christmas tree


Christmas trees play an important role in many holiday traditions. From decorating the tree with cherished ornaments and lights, to holiday photographs and opening presents, the Christmas tree is the essential symbol of the season.

At Hicks Nurseries, we have more than 90 stunningly realistic artificial Christmas trees for you to choose from. They are available in a multitude of colors, shapes, sizes and features.

In this guide, we will show you how to choose the perfect lifelike Christmas tree for any room in your home.


Christmas Tree Guide

Start by measuring the height of your room. A good rule of thumb is to leave at least 6-12 inches of space open between the top of the tree and the ceiling for a tree topper. For example, if your ceilings are 8 ft. tall, we would suggest a maximum tree height of 7½ ft.

• 4½-5 ft.:   Best for tabletops. A good choice for apartments, condos and bay windows.

• 6-7 ft.:  Great for smaller homes, dens and tighter spaces.

• 7½-8 ft.:  The most popular choice for larger rooms with ceilings up to 10 ft. tall.

• 9ft., 10 ft., 12 ft. and 14 ft.:  Ideal for great rooms, cathedral ceilings or a large entry hall.

Christmas Tree Guide


We carry slim, narrow, full and extra full tree shapes. Before you shop, measure your available floor space. Then, compare those measurements to the dimensions of our trees. Measurements are available in-store and on our website. No matter which shape you choose, our Christmas trees are all generously packed with branches for an amazingly lush look.

• Slim Trees:   Slender and compact for tight spaces such as entryways, dining rooms or a child’s room.

• Narrow Trees:  The perfect combination of full and slim, narrow trees work well in smaller rooms and apartments.

• Full Trees:  The most popular choice for large rooms. Ideal for those with sizable ornament collections.

• Extra Full Trees: With a greater diameter and fuller branches, extra full trees are well-suited for larger rooms.
