I spent an entire year with the King of Christmas Trees. I thought I’d update this post to let you know how the trees are doing for season 2 – are the lights still working? Is it easy to store? Are you still happy with them? I break it all down in this post. (If you want to read my original review, scroll down.)
This year, I was gifted a different Christmas tree king – 7.5 inch Artificial Crimson Fir Christmas Tree with 800 Warm White LED Lights. Although I loved last year’s tree, my husband wasn’t a fan of the scraggly look of the Christmas tree.
This tree is dark green. They are beautiful, just like my noble spruce, and were easy to put together. It came in three sections, and the lights turn on automatically when you connect each section together.
I spent a lot of time fluffing and freshening until the tree looked full – but that’s to be expected with all fake trees.
This is one of those trees that looks beautiful on its own. Simply set it up, turn it on, and feel the magic of Christmas!
Update on Noble Fir
But I haven’t forgotten about it My noble fir Since last year! I have stored this tree all year in my attic, inside the storage bag that comes with your Christmas tree. I can happily report that after taking it out of the bag one year later – it still looks like new and works well!
Taking it apart after last year’s Christmas season was easy as pie. I separated it and separated each section and then flipped it upside down so the branches flattened out a bit. Then I stored all the sections, gloves and tree in the large storage bag and carried it to the attic. I’m confident this new tree will be easy to take apart and store as well.
Is there anything you don’t like about these trees?
There are some differences that I noticed between Scarlet fir And Noble fir. First, crimson fir is darker. The noble spruce had a light green, almost dark green color. Crimson fir is much darker. I prefer the darker color, and I think it matches my decor better.
Secondly, even though Noble Spruce is denser – most branches on Noble Spruce have that real feel and look to them. I’ve noticed that with the scarlet fir, the front branches are the real feel, but behind them are more of a bunch of fake branches. I think this helps the tree look fuller but you can definitely see the difference up close.
So, for me personally, noble spruce trumps crimson spruce in this scenario (unfortunately, my husband doesn’t like it, so that’s another story). The noble spruce is still one of the most popular trees out there – I see it all over Instagram and it’s really beautiful.
Does King of Christmas Trees have a warranty?
I didn’t touch on this last time so I thought I’d mention it if you were wondering. The king of artificial Christmas trees is covered under a 2-year limited warranty. I did some searching to find other reviews. Many customers report that these trees last for over a decade, making them a cost-effective and sustainable option for holiday decor.
The warm white LED lights have a life expectancy of up to 25,000 hours, ensuring they will work for many future holiday seasons.
Would I buy again? Would I still recommend?
yes i will. And yes I do. The value is there – it’s still middle of the road in terms of price but better than a lot of the fake trees out there. The lights are beautiful (because they extend all the way down the middle of the tree), easy to put together, easy to store, and are still one of my favorite Christmas tree brands of all time.
There’s another false tree taking the world by storm and I’m tempted to try it. that it This Home Depot tree. You can report yourself!
If you’re wondering who the king of Christmas trees is – and if they’re really worth it – well, you’ve come to the right place.
In full disclosure, I recently acquired the King of Christmas King Noble Fir with LED Lights in exchange for my honest review and opinion. I am happy to tell you about my experience and thoughts about the tree.
And to cut to the chase (and because I appreciate your time), I’ll tell you that I love the tree. No, actually, I like the tree. I’ll go into all the details here below.
The king of Christmas trees
I’ve had a lot of fake Christmas trees in my life. I grew up decorating a faux tree, and now as an adult, I’ve always put up a faux tree (except for one year where my family insisted on a real tree.) Now, we do a faux and real tree together for what it’s worth.
I’ve had Balsam Hill, National Tree Company, Best Choice, and a few other brands. It’s safe to say that I have some good experience in the land of artificial Christmas trees.
Out of all the brands, King of Christmas is the one I love the most! It was faster charging, easier to assemble and the LED lights and functionality are great.
You get 8 different lighting functions on the remote ranging from adjusting brightness and flashing to steady on and timer lights.
There is also a foot push button. I just love the foot push button. No bending over! The remote control will also do the same thing.
Shipping was fast once my order was placed. And although King of Christmas says it will take 1-2 hours to assemble, I had it all set up and ready to go in about 45 minutes – including blowing up the branches!
King of Christmas offers fast and free shipping
These trees are large, so it’s a great advantage to have fast free shipping to almost the entire USA. The only caveats? This only includes the continental United States, not Hawaii or Alaska, and you cannot ship to PO Boxes. Also, some really large trees may have additional shipping fees.
You can choose trees from 15 different collections
There is no shortage of tree varieties!
Whether you’re looking for flowy or green, skinny or wide, long or short; The King of Christmas has plenty of trees to choose from. And if you need help, there’s a quiz to help you decide.
They have Christmas trees up to 15 feet tall
Speaking of versatility, if you need an extra-tall Christmas tree – we’ve got you covered there too. With a wide and slender 15-foot tree!
Each tree is handcrafted
Each tree is handmade.
The lights are hand-hung to reduce the look of ropes, and each branch is reinforced with steel so you can hang those extra special decorations you desire.
All of their PreLit trees are LED
Each pre-lit tree has warm white LED lights. Don’t worry – no ugly blue lights here.
The average life expectancy of the lights is 25,000 hours. When one light goes out, the rest stay on.
Assembly is very easy
Assembly is my favorite part (aside from the beauty of the tree of course). My noble spruce came in three parts clearly marked A, B and C. Is that included too? A tree bag for after-season storage, a tree stand, a remote control, assembly instructions and gloves for shaping those branches.
Once the tree is in the ground, simply install Part A first (pole to pole), then follow with Part B and then C. After that, it’s simply a matter of gently shaping the branches. It couldn’t be easier!
My tree came with a power pole – which means that once part of the tree is installed it is lit. You do not need to tie the light threads together.
They sell more than just trees
The king of Christmas trees isn’t just trees – who’s going to hole them?? They also sell wreaths, wreaths, and Christmas accessories (like ornaments and tree skirts) as well as tabletop trees.
Is the king of Christmas trees worth it?
On the whole, I say yes.
The only drawback I see is that they are not the cheapest, but they are not the most expensive artificial Christmas trees either. Overall you get what you pay for.
I absolutely love our tree, from the assembly to the actual branches to the lights – it’s not even fully decorated yet and I enjoy the light show every night.
