Last year when we opened our newly purchased artificial Balsam Hill fir tree the offensive plastic odor was overwhelming. I thought it would subside after the tree was aired out for a day or two.
Not so! Not only did it smell terrible, but this artificial tree was much more time consuming than if we had put up a real tree and not as attractive after hours of messing with it. We had to keep this Balsam Hill fir tree closed up in our front entryway because it made the entire front rooms of our home reek with the terrible odor. Yesterday we visited our local tree farm as we have done in the years past.
Had a great time even though it was freezing out. This tree smells and looks wonderful. Balsam Hill should be ashamed to have a business that misleads customers regarding the products they are purchasing. And these artificial trees are quite expensive.
I thought we would have the tree for years to come and that would make up for the expense. Our Balsam Hill tree will be in our next garage sale and we will tell anyone who is interested that it has an terrible odor!
