WHY YOU SHOULD CONSIDER A GROBE'S CHOICE ARTIFICIAL or EVERLASTING CHRISTMAS TREE

Grobe's Choice Artificial or Everlasting Christmas Tree has many desirable features:

  • They have a unique pre-assembled foldup style of assembly. This results in very quick and easy set up and take down. There are no colour coded panels or pieces. Most tree styles have all metal hinges for years of durability.
  • They are made of hypo-allergenic material and are flame resistant.
  • It's not how many tips there are - it's how much material is on those tips!  Our trees are full and thick - and don't require tons of decorations in order to look good. You can easily see the difference!
  • The tree needle material contains a UV inhibitor.
  • Most trees contain more than one colour of tree material, and all have quality Polyethylene tips. Both make for an even more realistic looking tree.
  • A heavy duty metal stand is included with each tree.
  • Pre-lit trees have convenient 'step and light' switches so you won't have to crawl under the tree to find a switch to turn it on or off.
  • The Christmas Tree box is compact and in good condition when you receive it.

Q. What are Stay-lit® lights and how are they different?

A.  With a traditional strand of lights on a pre-lit tree, if a bulb goes out on the string it is important to put in a new one for the one burnt out, as the other lights on the string will 'work harder' with fewer lights. Changing a bulb on a light string is neither difficult nor unexpected, but it IS something that folks don't often check upon doing. If a bulb is 'loose in the socket', it is possible that a small portion of your tree will be un-lit. Some very inexpensive trees that are lit in series can have a great deal of the tree go out with a loose socket.

With a Stay-lit® light string, you need never worry about an entire strand of lights going out again or having to climb up a ladder to find that one bulb that is causing the entire strand of lights to go out!

A hundred years from now, a Stay-lit® Christmas light string will never have gone out.  Yes, individual bulbs may burn out from time to time on a Stay-lit strung tree, but the string will never go out – (unless, of course, you cut the wire or a fuse blows!).  The reason for this is that inside of every light socket there is a tiny thermistor microchip that acts as a ‘silent sentry’ to keep the light string operating.  When all bulbs in the string are operating properly, the chip does nothing.  However, as soon as something happens to a bulb – whether it gets broken; becomes loose in the socket; falls from the socket; burns out or whatever – the chip takes over and acts as if it were a bulb to keep the rest of the string operating properly. It even acts as a kind of “surge protector” to protect the bulbs from power surges caused by other bulbs in the string burning out.

It is important to know that the bulb being used in the Stay-lit light string is NOT a proprietary and hard to find bulb. Almost any bulb, with a Stay-lit bulb base, can be used (so it is wise to keep the bulb base when disposing of a burnt bulb).  Grobe's stocks bulbs with Stay-lit bulb bases should you need them.

Because of the Patented Stay-lit® Technology, the lights last longer than a regular light string, making your holiday display better than ever.

Folks who visit Grobe's at Christmas often ask how to shape an everlasting tree.
This video does an awesome job explaining how it is done.   (It also explains why we start so early to set them up for viewing!)
All store staff at Grobe's (including our 'tree shaping savant' - Katlyn Martinez) are available to answer any questions.

When one light goes out on a string... does the entire tree go out?
As most of our trees incorporate Stay-lit technology, this does not happen when a bulb is out. With any electrical cord, if the wire is cut or damaged, sections adjacent to this break of course will go out.
Is it possible to 'shrink' the width of the tree?
Some tree styles can have the tips shaped in such a manner to reduce the overall width a little.
How do I get the tree to be taller than the height it is available?
A simple trick is to put the tree itself on a platform or table. With skirting, thule or gift placement, it's not hard to get a smaller tree to look larger than it is.
Most of the pre-lit trees have clear mini-lights. How can I have them coloured?
There are three ways at the moment to get this. The first is to purchase an LED lit tree that has that capability. The second is to swap out clear mini-light bulbs for coloured. The third is to add coloured LED strings to your clear lit tree. As very long length strings are available, this may be much simpler than you think.
Why should I buy a Grobe tree vs. online or somewhere else?
Because we assist and help those who buy our trees long after purchase. They are very well made, have few major issues, and we are available to help troubleshoot minor issues.
