Why buy a frosted or snowy artificial Christmas tree?

They have proved very popular in recent years as customers are looking for something a little different than the classic green cone shaped tree.

Several of these frosted and snowy artificial Christmas trees already come pre-decorated with cones and berries; so if you buy one of these pre-lit pre-decorated trees you can get away without adding anything else.

How much should I pay for a frosted or snowy tree?
When it comes to buying an artificial snowed or frosted Christmas tree pay the most you can afford as some of the more budget trees shed an awful amount of the fake snow. All the snowy trees shed some snow, especially some of the most heavily decked, so these trees are not a clean option, but they still make less mess than a real tree. Budget trees also tend to be quite sparse when compared to the better quality options on offer from Hayes. Consider whether you want a pre-lit tree or an unlit version, pre-lit trees are cost effective compared to buying an unlit tree and then spending more money on a lot of lights.
Should I buy a pre-lit or unlit frosted or snowy tree?
If you already have strings of Christmas tree lights then it probably makes more financial sense to buy an unlit artificial Christmas tree, however bear in mind your artificial Christmas tree from Hayes will last at least 15 years so are your light strings going to last as long? Don’t forget you can always add more lights to a pre-lit tree for a truly stunning effect.
Buying a pre-lit artificial Christmas tree saves you hours and a lot of stress, especially if you have just bunged the lights into a bag the previous year!
