Christmas Twig Trees

Twig Trees can be naturalistic, shaped like a willow or a cherry tree, icy white or full of colourful blossom, elegantly tall or bonsai small.

Freestanding or placed on a table top, the trees look perfect in any situation, with masses of LEDs creating a remarkable effect, a dazzling addition to your Christmas decorations.

Although the design and the impact these trees have is very striking, running costs are kept low due to the LEDs' economical energy consumption.

Konstsmide

A varied range is offered by this well known Scandinavian lighting company. Up to 2.5m (8ft 2ins) tall, 1.5m (4ft 11ins), their trees come in various styles including a remarkable weeping willow.

Placed outside the trees can line a pathway or decorate your doorway, with their LEDs sprinkling light and adding a festive glow to the surroundings.

Premier

Beautiful colourful cherry blossom trees are a Premier speciality. From 1.5m (4ft 11ins) to 2.5m (8ft 2ins) tall, the blue, pink, red and warm white LEDs combine intense light with vibrant colour to create an effervescent display.

As a centrepiece nothing will surpass the exquisite 45cm (1ft 5in) cherry tree with its zigzag stem and dainty multi-coloured blossoms, that is also available in 60cm (2ft) and 2.1m (6ft 11ins) version. 

White snowflakes and leaves decorate other trees with frosty twigs and branches. This vivid tracery is tremendously effective against a dark winter background.

Lumineo

The two Christmas Twig Trees from Kaemingk Lumineo are very distinctive. One is an unusual Spiral Christmas Tree with white or black LED laden branches winding around the main stem. This very eye-catching tree has eight light functions and two sizes - 2.4m (7ft 11ins) or 3m (9ft 11ins).

Alternatively, you can choose a very atmospheric birch style tree that has snow covered branches and wonderful warm white illumination. There are three sizes and the tree can be located indoors or in the garden.

For more interest, there's also a Birch Tree Grove consisting of five trees that form a fascinating scene, either 90cm (2ft 11ins) or 1.25m (4ft 1in) high with 48 or 72 LEDs.
