Artificial Christmas tree, lights and baubles
Angela Slater
Daughter of a farmer and market gardener so have always had a connection with the outdoors, whether it was keeping animals or producing fruit, vegetables and cut flowers. Along with my work at Hayes Garden World I also have a smallholding, mainly breeding rare breed pigs. I gained an HND and BSc in Conservation and Environmental Land Management, as a result I am an ardent environmentalist and have a keen interest in environmentally friendly gardening. In my time at Hayes I worked for several years in the Outdoor Plant and Houseplant areas

How To Assemble A Christmas Tree, From The National Tree Co., With The ‘Power Connect’ Lighting System

At last, a stress-free artificial pre-lit Christmas tree with Memory Wire

The new easy to use ‘Power Connect’ lighting system is available on the Premium Christmas trees here at Hayes Garden world. If you find putting lights on a Christmas tree an absolute nightmare, then this system is for you as it is completely stress-free and leaves you plenty of time to relax. All our artificial Christmas trees now come with a Lifetime Guarantee.


In the video we are using a pre-lit 7’ Smokey Mountain tree. This tree also features ‘Memory Shape Wire’ branches which automatically fall out into the correct position, so it really is the answer to easy Christmas tree assembly.


Just assemble the tree stand, place the bottom section in the stand and plug into the mains and switch on; normally we wouldn’t recommend assembling strings of lights with them plugged in but this lighting system is safe to assemble plugged in and with the power on. The connections are completely concealed and the lights are low voltage LED’s.

Put in the next section of tree, making sure the sections are fully connected, and the lights will automatically come on. If the lights don’t immediately come on just turn the section until they light. Just carry on building the tree until all sections are lit.

All you have to do now is dress out some of the branches, decorate the tree and put a pre-lit tree topper on. If you were wondering what the wire connection at the top of the tree was for, it plugs into the angel or star tree topper.

That’s how easy it is to use the Power Connect lighting system ‘lighting that is poles apart’.
