gold decor

Every year, across the globe,  many people put up prelit Christmas trees as their main decoration for the holiday season. Whether you decorate these with traditional themes or something that is a bit new school, it doesn’t matter as this is all a personal decision. With this being said, while prelit Christmas trees are meant to last for several years, there comes a time when you may need a new one as your older one is no longer looking its best. And when the tree looks pitiful, no matter what theme you use, you are going to find that the end result is not going to be what you had hoped.

With this being said, there are several reasons why prelit Christmas trees may need to be replaced. There are times in which poor storage led to damage, or even age can cause some issues. Here are the top signs that you need to go ahead and start shopping for a new tree to place in your home!

1. Branches are missing. This is a huge sign! Whether the branch broke while it was being moved into storage or an accident happened to cause the branch to fall off, either way, when a branch is missing it is going to create a huge gap of space in this tree when it is up.

2. The needles on the branches are falling off. The beauty of artificial trees is that you never have to worry about vacuuming up needles like you have to worry about with a real tree. If you notice that needles are falling off this tree, then it is time to invest in a new one.

3. The tree is bent. If you find that the entire tree is leaning, it could mean that the stand is bent or the actual tree is bent. The main support frame of these trees can be become bent during a move or not being stored properly.

Of course, there are several people out there that simply want a new tree to go with a new space. For example, if you recently moved into a location that offers a larger space for this tree, then by all means upgrade your current artificial tree to one that you like for this bigger space. Whatever your reason for getting a new prelit tree this season, be sure that you are already shopping around. With all the options that these prelit trees offer, you may have a tough time deciding on the best one for you!
