Hammacher Schlemmer Introduces The World's Best Prelit Christmas Trees

NEW YORK, Oct. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Continuing its 163-year history of offering the Best, the Only and the Unexpected, Hammacher Schlemmer introduces The World's Best Prelit Christmas Trees, the most realistic trees on the market, meticulously strung with the best lights available.

Available exclusively from Hammacher Schlemmer, they are the only trees with three-dimensional, injection-molded branch tips that replicate the unique growth patterns, color and feel of the needles, and branch silhouettes of freshly cut Noble, Fraser, and Douglas Firs.

"The World's Best Prelit Christmas Trees have up to 40% more branch tips than typical trees, creating a fuller, more realistic tree," explained Hammacher Schlemmer's General Manager Fred Berns.

The inner branches and trunk are lined with broad fibers to bolster the conifers' fullness, a material overused by lesser trees. The longer branches are made of 18-gauge wire, the strongest available, and easily support large ornaments.

The 7 1/2' Noble and Fraser Firs come with 1,200 LEDs that last 25,000 hours or 1,400 incandescents (the Douglas Fir is only available with LEDs). Both types of lights produce the same traditional warm glow but the LEDs last 8X longer than typical incandescents while consuming 98% less power. If a bulb is broken or burns out, patented technology ensures that the rest of the strand remains illuminated, backed by The Hammacher Schlemmer Lifetime Guarantee.

All three styles of trees come with white or multicolored lights, they are available in full or slim widths, and they range in size from 4 1/2' to 9 1/2' tall. For more information, please visit www.hammacher.com or contact Trish Hammond at (847) 581-8987 or via e-mail at pr@hammacher.com .
