After many hours of research and in-depth examination of a dozen models of artificial trees, we have determined that the Triumph Tree 788041 is the best quality / price ratio of the moment thanks, among other things, to its very natural effect and its solid constitution. Stabilized by a robust metal base, it is hardly flammable and has a very complete composition.

How did we choose?
The Christmas tree, like the Christmas decorations , is an essential element during the Christmas and New Year celebrations. Recently, artificial models are gaining more and more followers because of their many advantages.
Not only do these trees save money in the long run, but they are also more practical since they require no maintenance. In addition, their use over several years is beneficial for the environment.
In view of the many models available on the market, it is not easy to choose the ideal tree. This is why, in order to advise you as well as possible, we have based ourselves on a few criteria which seem essential to us:
- Brand reliability : there are many unreliable brands on the market these days. Therefore, it seems essential to us to favor already recognized brands in order to be certain of the quality of manufacture as well as that of the after-sales service, if necessary.
- Design : it is important to choose your tree according to the decorations you want to bring it. So, either you opt for the traditional green model, or you choose a flocked or luminous tree. Note that as part of this selection, we essentially turned to traditional and realistic models, so that these can adapt to the largest number of interiors.
- Dimensions : it is best to determine the location and space you have before making your purchase. To do this, you need to take into account the ceiling height but also the floor area and the space occupied by the branches.
- Materials : there are all kinds, such as wood, metal, polyethylene or PVC. Some of these materials influence lightness, others on stability and / or realism.
- Ease of assembly : multiple options are now available to facilitate assembly and make it quick. Note that if it can be tedious to have to unfold each branch individually, this allows to properly work the silhouette and the placement of decorations.
Thanks to these criteria, we were able to identify ten interesting trees, even if models from recognized brands are quite rare on the online market. It was only after a more in-depth analysis of each of them that we managed to identify what we consider to be the 4 best artificial trees currently available.
Our Choice: Triumph Tree 788041
This spruce-style tree measures over 1.80m and has good robustness. It is stabilized by a metal leg and is hardly flammable. The color codes on the branches allow installation and disassembly fairly quickly. It is the most complete model of this comparison.
Triumph Tree is a Dutch brand specializing in artificial Christmas trees for over 25 years.
From the Forest Frosted Pine series, this model benefits from a fairly classic design: it is the perfect clone of an authentic spruce . This beautiful tree, 1.80 m high and 1.30 m wide, has 942 branches.
Made of PVC, it stands out thanks to its mixture of hard and flexible needles. This detail gives it a dense and, above all, very natural look.
Its metal base is very stable and remains fairly discreet insofar as the branches fall low enough. It is also useful to note that this fir is hardly flammable, since it has fireproof branches.
Despite its size, it remains easy to assemble. Indeed, the manufacturer has implemented a very practical color code which is directly affixed to the branches. You just have to associate the different colors together.
In general, users are more than satisfied with this Triumph Tree. They appreciate the realistic side, because it looks like two drops of water like a freshly cut spruce. However, we have a reservation regarding its packaging, the branches of the tree being directly delivered in the box, without specific protection for transport.
The best cheap artificial tree: Deuba 470
This PVC tree is very easy to store despite its large size of 1.80m. It has a symmetrical construction and comes with a support. If it has a good hold, several users denounce yet a low density of branches on the bottom of the tree, which deprives it of the realistic effect so coveted.
The German company Deuba, located in Merzig, has been present on the market since 2002 and quickly established itself as a leader in online sales.
The real strength of the Deuba 470 is above all its investment. It is quite rare to find a tree of this quality at such an affordable price.
It has a classic design while standing out with its artificial snow and encrusted pine cones. It therefore has a practical side, allowing you to make some savings in terms of decoration, without losing the magical effect.
Thanks to its symmetrical design and its 705 branches, it offers a very natural look, but only on the top of the tree. For good reason, several users deplore a low density of branches at the bottom. This disadvantage, combined with the fact that the strands start far enough from the trunk, gives it a bare appearance at the base and, therefore, less realistic.
This can also have repercussions on the assembly. If it remains easy thanks to the clip fixing system, it can nevertheless be tedious. In fact, you are wasting time trying to spread the branches correctly to hide this defect.
It will also be necessary to be careful because the support can also be fragile. On the other hand, during storage, you will have no trouble storing it, even if it is very bulky.
In sum, it is fair to say that despite the few flaws inherent in its price range, this tree remains the best option for those with a limited budget.
The best mid-range artificial tree: FairyTrees Natural Spruce
180 cm high and 125 cm wide, this model is an elegant choice in your interior, with an effectively natural finish.
It is designed by a German brand specializing in the creation of artificial trees and proud of its handcrafted trees in one of their European factories. They also offer very pretty decorations that include traditional Christmas balls as well as compositions made with artificial branches.
If its installation does not present any difficulty, it is however necessary to show softness. It is indeed a fairly light PVC model (8 kg), which can quickly lose a few needles if its handling is not done meticulously when folding and unfolding the branches.
It must be said that there are few users who show inconvenience since these same needles are particularly well supplied. So even if some of them come off, the tree remains stoically natural.
For its storage, it is also recommended to take some precautions. The manufacturer recommends keeping it in a special bag or carton and in a room where the ambient temperature cannot exceed 25 ° C (77 ° F), such as in a basement or garage.
If this may seem restrictive, we must admit that the rendering is particularly worth it. And to make it even more magical, you will receive a manual with the purchase including a detailed description of how to best position your decoration, with a few photos to support it.
Thanks to all this and despite the slight loss of thorns, users are very satisfied with this Christmas tree and many people recommend it.
A mid-range alternative: Yorbay
Thanks to its integrated false snow and its real pine cones, this 180 cm model immerses you directly in the atmosphere of a snowy Canadian forest.
It is offered by Yorbay, a German brand located in Hamburg that offers a wide selection of home and garden supplies.
If it differs from the competition, it is mainly thanks to its realistic design on the one hand and (above all) to its iron base allowing it to support a load up to 80 kg on the other.
Given that it has more than 900 leaves, fanatics of sumptuous decorations should be seduced by it, especially since real pine cones and artificial snow give it a certain charm, even if the latter tends to crumble after several uses. .
We particularly appreciate its “safe” side since the needles, made of fireproof materials, have the advantage of not pricking. It is therefore very pleasant to decorate it as a family, without fear for small children’s hands.
It must be said that its assembly is extremely simple, since it suffices to fit the three distinct parts which compose it, then to unfold and orient the multiple branches according to your convenience. If you really need it, also know that the manufacturer has developed an installation video to help you with this task.
Despite the tendency of fake snow to crumble, we are dealing with a model which is distinguished by its generous rendering, its ease of assembly and its robustness. Handled with care, it should brighten up your Christmas for many years.
At the moment, no model available on the European market seemed to us to meet the qualities necessary to appear alongside our main selection. We will not fail to offer you interesting alternatives as soon as we know about them.
