King Of Christmas Trees Review – One Year Later

Decorating my new King of Christmas Tree Scarlet Fir

So, it’s been one full year with King of Christmas Trees. I thought I would update this post to let you know how the trees did for a second season – do the lights still work? Are they easy to store? Am I still happy with them? I’m breaking it all down in this post. (If you want to read my original review, scroll down.)

A new tree?

This year, I was gifted a different King of Christmas Tree – the 7.5′ Scarlet Fir Artificial Christmas Tree with 800 Warm White LED Lights. Although I loved last year’s tree, my husband was not a fan of the skimpy Christmas tree look.

This tree is a darker green. It’s beautiful and just like my Noble Fir, it was a snap to put together. It came in three sections, and the lights automatically come on as you connect together each section.

I spent a good amount of time fluffing and refluffing until the tree looked full – but that’s to be expected with all faux trees.

This is one of those trees that looks beautiful all on it’s own. Just set it up, turn it on, and feel the Christmas magic!

Update on Noble Fir

But I didn’t forget about my Noble Fir from last year! I stored this tree all year in my attic, inside the storage bag that comes with your King of Christmas Tree. I can happily report that after taking it out of the bag one year later – it still looks and works as good as new!

Disassembling it after last year’s Christmas season was easy as pie. I unplugged it, disconnected each section and then flipped upside down so the branches would flatten a bit. Then I stored all sections and the gloves, and the tree stand in the large storage bag and carried it up to the attic. I’m confident that this new tree will be just as easy to take apart and store just as well.

Is there anything you don’t like about these Trees?

There are a couple differences I noted between the Scarlet Fir and Noble Fir. For one, the Scarlet Fir is darker. The Noble Fir had a lighter, almost sage green color to it. The Scarlet Fir is way darker. I prefer the darker color, I just think it goes better with my decor.

Second, although the Noble Fir is skimpier – Most of the branches on the Noble Fir have that real feel and real look to them. I noticed that the with the Scarlet Fir, the front branches are the real feel, but behind them is more of that fake branch variety. I think this helps the tree look more full but you can definitely see the difference up close.

So, for me personally, the Noble Fir edges out the Scarlet Fir in this scenario (unfortunately, my husband doesn’t like it so that’s another story). The Noble Fir is still one of the most popular trees out there – I see it all over Instagram and it really is beautiful.

Does King of Christmas Trees have a warranty?

I didn’t touch on this last time so I thought I would mention it, in case you are wondering. King of Christmas artificial trees is covered under a 2-year limited warranty. I did some digging to find other reviews. Many customers have reported that these trees last for over a decade, making them a cost-effective and sustainable choice for holiday decor.

The warm white LED lights have a life expectancy of 25,000 hours, ensuring they will work for many future holiday seasons.

Would I purchase Again? Do I still Recommend?

Yes I would. And yes, I do. The value is there – they are still middle of the road on price but better than a lot of faux trees out there. The lights are beautiful (as they extend all the way to the middle of the tree), it’s a snap to put together, easy to store and it’s still one of my favorite Christmas tree brands ever.

There’s another faux tree taking the world by storm and I’m tempted to try it out. It’s this Home Depot tree. You can decide for yourself!

Original Review

If you’ve been wondering about these King of Christmas Trees – and if they are really worth it – well, you’ve come to the right place.

In full disclosure, I was recently gifted a King of Christmas King Noble Fir with LED lights in exchange for my honest review and opinion. And I’m happy to spill the beans with you about my experience and my thoughts about the tree.

To cut to the chase (and because I value your time), I will tell you that I like the tree. No, actually, I LOVE the tree. I’ll go into all the details here below.

King of Christmas Trees

I’ve had a lot of faux Christmas trees in my life. I grew up decorating a faux tree, and now as an adult have always put up a faux tree (aside from one year where my family insisted on a real one.) Now, we do both a faux and real for what it’s worth.

I’ve had Balsam Hill, National Tree Company, Best Choice and some other off brands. It’s safe to say I have some good experience in the land of artificial Christmas Trees.

And of all the brands, King of Christmas is the one I like best! It’s been the fastest shipping, the easiest to assemble and the LED lights and functions are great.

You get 8 different light functions on a remote from adjusting the brightness, to twinkling to flashing to steady lights, and a timer.

There’s also a foot push button. I just love a foot push button. No bending over! The remote will do the same thing too.

Shipping was fast once my order was placed. And although King of Christmas states it will take 1-2 hours to assemble, I got mine fully up and ready to go in about 45 minutes – branch fluffing included!

King of Christmas offers Fast, Free Shipping

These trees are big, so it’s a nice perk to have fast free shipping to almost the entire USA. The only caveats? This only includes the continental US, not Hawaii or Alaska, and you cannot ship to PO Boxes. Also, some of the REALLY big trees might have additional shipping charges.

You can choose trees from 15 different collections

There is no shortage of tree variety!

Whether you are looking for flocked or green, slim or wide, tall or short; King of Christmas has a lot of trees to choose from. And if you need help, there’s a quiz to help you decide.

  • King Douglas
  • Yorkshire Fir
  • King Noble (the one I have!)
  • King Flock
  • King Fraser Fir
  • Duchess
  • Queen Flock
  • Scarlett Fir
  • Prince Flock
  • Tribeca Spruce
  • Alpine Fir
  • Aspen Fir
  • Rushmore
  • Royal Fir
  • Cypress Spruce

They Have Christmas Trees up to 15 feet tall

Speaking of variety, if you need a very tall Christmas Tree – they have covered you there too. With both a wide and slim 15 foot tree!

Every Tree Is Handmade

Every tree is handmade.

Lights are hand strung to minimize the appearance of cords, and each branch is reinforced with steel so you can hang those extra special ornaments you want.

Their PreLit Trees are all LED

Every prelit tree they offer has warm white LED lights. Don’t worry – no ugly blue lights here.

The lights have a life expectancy of 25,000 hours. And when one bulb goes out, the rest will stay lit.

Assembly is a Breeze

The assembly is my favorite part (aside from the beauty of the tree, of course). My Noble Fir tree came in three parts clearly labeled A, B and C. Also included? A tree bag for storage after the season, a tree stand, remote, assembly instructions and gloves for shaping those branches.

Once you put the tree stand down, you simply install part A first (pole into pole), then follow with B and then C. Then, it’s simply of a matter of gently shaping the branches. Couldn’t be easier!

My tree came with a power pole – which means as soon as you install a tree part it becomes lit. You don’t need to connect light strands together.

They Sell More than Just Trees

King of Christmas Trees is not just trees – who woulda thunk it?? They also sell wreaths, garlands, Christmas accessories (like ornaments and tree skirts) as well as tabletop trees.

Are King of Christmas Trees Worth it?

All in all, I say yes.

The only con I see is that they are not the cheapest, but they are not the most expensive artificial Christmas trees either. And you generally get what you pay for.

I absolutely love our tree, from assembly to the realness of the brances to the lights – it’s not even decorated fully yet and I’m enjoying the light show every night.
