Made in USA Christmas Trees

Made in USA Christmas Tree

Are there any artificial Christmas trees made in the America?  Where are artificial Christmas Trees even made?  Lets take a closer look these questions.  After all, don’t you care were the products you buy come from?

Of the 32.8 million Christmas trees sold in America in 2018, 23.6 million were artificial.  An estimate 90 percent of those artificial Christmas trees sold were manufactured in China.  There seems to be no American companies currently manufacturing artificial Christmas trees in the USA. Sure there are hundreds of American companies selling artificial Christmas trees, they just aren’t manufactured in the USA. They are nearly all made in China.

Are there any artificial Christmas trees made in America then? The answer is yes, there now is!  Modern Christmas Trees is now manufacturing all its trees in America. This wasn’t always the case though. Modern Christmas trees were made available to the world in 2012. In the first 2 years of business, the trees were made in America but because of scaling challenges and manufacturing costs, manufacturing was moved over seas. Now each tree will be made from acrylic factories in the USA. The rings from these acrylic sheets will be cut by Lairds plastics in Denver, helping to contribute to the local economy.  The trees will also be assembled using ball chain from an American manufacture helping to create additional American jobs.

The impact of manufacturing artificial Christmas trees in America not only has local and national economic benefits, it also has environmental benefits.  If you currently own an artificial Christmas tree, the is a 90% chance it was made in China and had to travel halfway across the world to get to you. Think about the carbon footprint that tree has created in its way to get to you. For more information about these unique trees check out this feature in Architectural Digest.
