Flocked trees are natural trees that have been "painted" with all natural (biodegradable) artificial snow. This process effectively glues the needles on the tree and precludes the need for watering. Some sellers place the tree on a stand that can be watered, others do not. Remember, a white tree will require lights with a white cord to blend in.When you buy a flocked tree, it stays on the stand it came on, so all you do is bring it in and decorate it. At the end of the season, it can be disposed of in the same way as a regular cut Christmas tree.

Flocked trees offer an excellent chance to showcase soft, wintry colors effectively. When muted tones like lavender, grey and soft plums are placed on green trees, their color values drastically change and become washed out. Flocked trees, characterized by their heavily frosted appearance, offer a textured white surface along which colors read clearly.
What better way to celebrate the season than with a little snow—indoors? Faux snow is inexpensive, and reusable, and perfect for transforming any surface into a mini winter wonderland. Here, the design team added a forest of flocked trees and a vase overflowing with baby’s breath to complete the snowy scene.
