Sharing a collection of the best natural-looking flocked and green fake Christmas trees for a variety of budgets!
This post was originally published November 21, 2019, but I’m bringing it back today with all new sources and in-stock finds! Now that we’re only about a week away from Halloween, I’ve been getting more and more questions about our various faux Christmas trees. In blog world, we all tend to decorate early in order to share ideas before you start your decor. But, I’ve found this year, everyone seems to be wanting to get into the spirit of the holidays sooner than ever before! And with shipping delays, I know a lot of people are trying to get a head start! If you’re in the market for a new Christmas tree this year, I’m sharing a huge collection of the best fake Christmas trees available right now that have good or excellent reviews.
Fake Christmas Trees That Look Real
Last year, I decided to go back to faux green Christmas trees in several of our rooms. In mid-2019, faux Christmas tree donations were being asked for for flood victims in the area and I donated all of our green ones we’d accumulated over the years thinking I was a flocked tree convert for life.
Then fall rolled around that year, and I started thinking I wanted a more natural looking tree option! I spent a few weeks searching, and many of the following choices were my top contenders! While I couldn’t “test drive” each and every one, I spent a lot of time looking at reviews and trying to find the most realistic options that also wouldn’t break the bank! Today I’m sharing the best fake Christmas trees (both flocked and natural-looking).

The Best Natural-Looking Fake Christmas Trees
We ultimately ended up buying this faux Christmas tree last year and couldn’t love it more! In fact, we both loved it so much, we bought a second one for our dining room!

And here it was once I decided to ultimately decorate a few weeks before Christmas. It looked so beautiful bare I almost didn’t decorate it! I added a bunch of Ornaments and floral picks (in metallic tones) to create this neutral and sparkly look!
Following are the best natural-looking fake Christmas trees I found in my search. I’ve tried to include a variety of heights and price points, but note that many of these are offered in multiple heights (sometimes in a separate listing). Most of the ones I’ve included have a mix of the old-school branches mixed with the new hard plastic tips that look so much more realistic!

The Best Flocked Christmas Trees
We’re still using our two flocked trees as well, so I’m loving all the variety in our home. Over the past few years, I spent a lot of time researching the best flocked Christmas trees and the ones we own are currently still in stock! Wayfair loves to continually change up the listing name and change the link for whatever reason, but here is our 7.5′ flocked Christmas tree. The upside of buying from their site is all the helpful reviews and personal photos! And here is our 9′ flocked Christmas tree! I feel like Amazon keeps messing with the price on this one (it should be around $350) which tells me inventory is currently low. So keep an eye on it if you really want this one!
We still love both of the flocked trees so much, but they are very different. The 7.5′ flocked Christmas tree has the prettiest light tone, in my opinion, with that soft warm glow. But the flock is also a lot heavier. It’s prettier but is also significantly messier!

Our 9′ flocked Christmas tree is much cleaner, but the lights are much more of a cold white light. I love that it has a light pole though, so you literally snap the three pieces together and all the lights work. There’s no trying to figure out where the cords hook together, etc. Side note: Our ceilings are 9′ tall in our office, and I still went with a 9′ tree. I just bent the top branch in half, which actually helps accommodate the weight of a topper, as well!

On both flocked trees, I love using floral picks in white or metallic tones to rest on the branches. I feel like it helps fill in any of the bald spots that are harder to correct because of the flock on the stems! I usually pick them up at Hobby Lobby when they are half off.
Following are even more flocked trees that get excellent reviews! Simply click any of the images below to learn more about each item.
Christmas Tree Accessories
To put the finishing touches on your Christmas tree, consider adding a Christmas tree collar or Christmas tree star topper! I’ve never been a ribbon person, but I also add in a variety of ornaments and floral pics to decorate. I tend to get most of my generic ornaments at places like Hobby Lobby or At Home when they’re running specials! It can save you a ton of money!
