  1. I just love how beautiful and life-like the balsam hill trees are. We have a tiny tree and would love to upgrade to a balsam hill tree! Thanks for the giveaway Jen and Balsam Hill!

  2. I love love the Aberdeen Spruce! I like having my family tree up way after New Years and starting the first week of December. They never seem to last that long. This is why I would love to have the opportunity to get a Balsam Hill Tree. Thank you.

  3. I would love to win a Balsam Hill tree because we lost all pur Christmas decorations a few years ago when the roof in our storage closet leaked and everything was covered on mold and mildew and had to be discarded. I have been slowly been reassembling decorations bit we still don’t have a nice tree.

    1. Balsam hill tree’s has so many negative reviews on line….you should read some of them. Everything from people sending the trees back and not getting their money refunded to broken lights and whole sections of the tree not working. I personally had to put a dispute through my credit card company which is on going. This company does not stand by their product unless you are someone of importance…customer service will keep you on the phone and bounce you from one rep to another until you finally give up and hang up. I was on the phone with this company for almost 2 hours one time and an hour and a half another time and still no resolution. You couldn’t pay me enough money to take a free tree from them…read the negative reviews.

  4. These are all SO beautiful! I want to win a Balsam Hill Tree, because I currently do NOT have a tree & I think their trees are amazing!!! lol

    Thank you for the chance to win!

  5. I will be in a new home next year, and having spent years in a small condominium, I don’t have a tree and would LOVE to win a Balsam Hill Tree! I would be so happy to be joining you all in decorating a beautiful tree in my home. I haven’t been at home for the past several Christmases and I really look forward to getting all of my old decorations out of storage and decking my home and tree for the season! I have headed over to follow Balsam Hill on all of the social media! Thanks hosting the wonderful Christmas Home tour! I have been living vicariously through all of them, since there is not a decoration up in my home. I am currently in Germany with my daughter, awaiting the arrival of her second daughter (her husband is in the service). I will arrive home on the 18th and swing into Christmas mode! Merry Christmas!

  6. This is the last year with a real tree, as the kids are finally almost on their own, so I am looking forward to an artificial tree and the ‘no messy needles’ that comes with it! But I still want a beautiful, real-looking tree.

  7. I’m Canadian, but our family now lives in Haiti where we serve as full time missionaries. Christmas is my very favorite time of year! I miss going to pick out a Christmas tree so much. Balsam Hill trees are so beautiful and remind me of the real trees we would get back home, but we could never afford to get one ourselves. I love that the trees come with their own bag – would be easy to bring the tree in as a piece of luggage and store here. If I won it would be something that would bring a sense of home over the holidays, and I would treasure it 🙂

  8. I’d love to win a Balsam Hill Tree because they are GORGEOUS! I’ve got my fingers crossed!

  9. I have never considered purchasing an artificial tree until this year. I am on my own and have continued to insist on a real tree, which is what I grew up,with. I love them, but they’re extremely difficult for me to manage … Get into the house, move around so best side is showing, get back out of the house, etc. I always need help and there are always stressful problems with them. This year, my tree is leaning :o( I have really enjoyed seeing all of the beautiful and different Balsam Hill trees in the holiday home tours and am now very intrigued about adding one to my home. They look so real!

  10. I would love to have two trees in my home next year. I’ve always dreamed of doing that and winning a Balsam Hill tree would make that possible!

  11. I would love to win a Balsam Hill tree because we always buy a real tree for the kids, but I would love a big, beautiful tree to sit in my living room that is just for me!! I’ve always wanted a big one in front of my window in the living room! Love the gorgeous trees!

  12. I have been looking at the trees from Balsam Hill for years. They are so lifelike and natural looking. Sure would love to win one!!!!!!!

  13. I would love to win a Balsam Hill Tree because I’m doing a sleep over room for my kids and it will be ready next year. AND……. of course it will need a tree. I love the lightly flocked one. Thanks for the opportunity!

  14. I love the Norway Spruce tree and pinned it from the Baslam Hill website! Di@Cottage-Wishes

  15. I would love to win a Balsam Hill tree. It looks real and would make my new house dressed for Christmas. We will be living next to our daughter and her family, sharing with our grandkids makes the holidays so very special. Thank you for all your creative ideas for Christmas. Di@Cottage-Wishes

  16. What’s not to love about all the Balsam Hill trees! They look so realistic and the frosted ones are my favorite! Thanks for the chance!

  17. i would love to have a new tree-a few years ago we bought one right after christmas, and it was a great deal. the next year we opened it up and were so disappointed to see how slim it was. i want a nice round, full tree. thanks!

  18. Hi Jennifer! What a fun contest! I tried entering my home tour, and somehow managed to not link a picture. Is their a way to fix this? Thanks for your help, and for the opportunity to win such a beautiful tree!

  19. Would love one of these trees. They’re on my when-I’ve-paid-off-my-student-loans list of things to buy. They seem incredibly realistic and easy to maintain based on all Ive read about them.

  20. I’ve never had a great quality tree and would love to have a tree that would last our lifetime! Thank you for hosting!

  21. I would love to have a balsam tree one of the slim ones… They look so real. What a great giveaway…..

  22. All the trees were beautiful and so different, and that is what the Balsam Hill trees are, they are a cut above – so natural.

  23. I would love to win a Balsam Hill tree! We have always done fresh trees but I am ready for a pre-lit and these are beautiful. Thank you so much for the opportunity! Merry Christmas! karen….

  24. I would love to win e cause I never win anything. Haha. Not only that, but their trees looks so real and are extremely great looking.

  25. Hmmm-wouldn’t allow me to link it to my FB page. Kept saying it wasn’t linked. I pinned several and followed Balsam Hill on FB as well.

  26. I love the Balsam Hill trees. They are the best I’ve seen anywhere. I would surely love to win one! Wish me luck! I’m going now to follow everyone and everything as instructed. Frankiekins@yahoo.com

  27. What an awesome giveaway! These look like live trees. I would love to win one. Thanks for the chance to win!

  28. I would love to have a Balsam Tree. I kill everything. I have no green thumb at all. Even cactus and hen and chicks I kill. Thanks for the chance.

  29. I have been drooling over Balsam Hill trees from your tour for a couple of years now. Last year I sent their link to my cousin who bought one and it is FABULOUS! I love them all but I adore the one fromDear Lillie especially!

  30. I love looking at the beautiful, realistic looking trees offered by Balsam Hill! I should want a new tree for myself since mine requires each branch to be individually placed and the lighting takes forever. However, I really would like one for my daughter who is very allergic to real trees. Her husband, however, loves a real tree. I think the answer to this dilemma is a Balsam Hill tree. Thank you for the opportunity!!

  31. These are all so beautiful! I think my favorite is the Frosted Fraser Fir–it looks perfectly dusted with snow! I also love all of the lights that are on the trees…looks like every detail is meticulously thought out!

  32. I have been pining (no pun intended) for a Balsam Hill tree for a while now. I would LOVE to have it for my Christmas eor. That flocked number? Gah. I want it!

  33. Jen,

    I’ve been seeing the Balsam Hill trees all over and wow,,,so many beautiful trees and winter wonder!! We’ve been thinking of a faux tree for a while I really hate to give that up but these are so real looking.

    Thanks for a great giveaway! 🙂

  34. I found a small, tabletop flocked tree at a thrift store recently. I was thrilled… but I’ve always wanted a large flocked tree. Having looked at several, I think the ones by Balsam Hill are the most beautiful… and the most realistic. I would love to own one! Thank you for the opportunity.

  35. I want to win a #BalsamHill tree for my mom. She always loved Christmas, even had a red-and-green Advent wedding, but when we lost my dad a few Decembers ago, she stopped decorating. I know if I give her something like this, she’ll think about happier times. Balsam Hill trees are really gorgeous and long-lasting, so it will cheer her up year after year.

  36. I know from owning a couple of trees and lighted garland from Balsam Hill that they carry quality products. I can always use some more of their decor especially a nicer tree than the cheap one from another store I am using.

  37. I would love love love a Balsam Hill tree; we just moved into a house with a very tall ceiling, and suddenly our 4.5 ft tree looks miniature! I’ve never seen a Balsam Hill tree up close, but I’ve heard the quality is quite good. I’d love to see one up close in my living room! =)

  38. I would LOVE to win a Balsam Hill tree! The look of a real tree without the mess of tree needles everywhere. 🙂

  39. I would love a Balsam Hill tree because they are gorgeous. Ours is 10 years old and I’ve had to stuff lights into it because more than half of the tree will not light up:( Thank you for the opportunity!

  40. I would absolutely love to have a large grand looking flocked tree like the one Four Generations One Roof has! Thank you for this opportunity!

  41. I would love to win a tree to be able to display my grandparents vintage ornaments. Our budget hasn’t allowed for a second tree in recent years. Thanks for the chance to win a gorgeous tree!!!

  42. I would love to win one, because I am getting way to old to climb on the floor to water my real tree anymore, lol!

  43. These are such lovely trees. They appear so life-like. My husband and I have been talking about getting a larger tree for some years now and this would be the perfect time and gift.

  44. I’d love to win a tree cause the are SPECTACULAR! They truly appear realistic and my guess is that they keep their shape for many years to we own. This would be lovely addition to our Christmas décor.


  46. Balsam Hill trees are absolutely beautiful and so life-like anyone would be hard pressed to say it wasn’t the real deal. I love how lush and full they are also. It always saddens me to see a sparse looking Christmas tree. I would be proud to have and display one of their trees in my home. I am also now following them on twitter, pinterest, and facebook.

  47. #balsamhill Following them on social media as well. All your trees look beautiful. Keep me in mind next year, would love to be featured. BeFedAgain.com is just over a year old and we are still gaining steam… Happy Holidays and Have a Happy New Year!

  48. Balsam Hill trees are the most beautiful…Would love to have such a quality Christmas tree to display the glass ornaments I’ve collected over the years!

  49. Balsam Hill trees are known to the be the best. I just had a discussion tonight at a work dinner about how they were the best ones available. Of course i knew that, but it was validated! I’d love a tree 🙂

  50. We move so much with the military that our trees seem to take a beating. It’d be wonderful to have a “fresh” one!

  51. I’d love to have one of those gorgeous trees!! My pre-lit tree bit the dust this year and I’ll be needing a new one!! Thanks!!!

  52. I would love to win because my birthday yields Christmas gifts anyway so this win would be a good fit for me!

  53. Balsam Hill has the most beautiful realistic trees I have seen. And they have so many to chose from. It would be wonderful to own one.

  54. I would love to win because we’d love to upgrade our tree. Until this year we’ve lived in a smaller apartment and only had room for a little tree. Now, we have much more room, but our little tree looks a bit lost! I’d also love to have a white tree, too. 🙂

  55. Wow, these trees are amazing! What beautiful creatiosn. I would love to have one and have festive stunning elegance year round!! Love!

  56. The Christmas trees are beautiful each with their own style and theme. I appreciate those qualities which is why I would truly enjoy one from Balsam or the sponsor bloggers.

  57. i am in ohh and ahh like a little child such beautiful trees !!! My tree is over 10 years old and is loosing lots of twigs,needles etc. and it is way to big …. when we bought it we had high ceilings. i would love a new smaller tree from Balsam Hill , the quality and real look just blows my mind =) thanks and Happy Holidays!

  58. I followed all steps. It would not let me post a pictures. Rules are hard to follow. Is this only open to bloggers?

    1. Hi Ellie, Just the one entry, there are a bunch of other ways to enter, you can post on social media, or leave a comment too.

  59. I love the Balsam Hill trees and would love to have one. I prefer them to live trees, because they’re beautiful and perfectly shaped.

  60. I love the trees, but they have been out of my budget for a while. I was able to get a discount tree on a clearance price, and it looked ok for last year but this year the lights went out, and since a new tree is not in my means, I had to remove all the lights and completely redecorate. (luckily I had a spare string of lights to put on the tree)

  61. I won 100.00 in the contest. Balsomhill knows nothing about this. Please help in this matter
