Panelists loved the "beautiful" plentiful lighting on the GE 7.5' Just Cut Fraser Fir ($298). Like the Balsam Hill, our Best Overall, the Fraser Fir has a foot-pedal on-off switch for lights and an electrical connection for your angel or star. For the price, this tree's hard to top.

Converts from living trees will love this take on a Fraser fir. The "best Christmas tree species in nature" looks equally stunning in artificial form with silvery-green needles. (starting at $459, BalsamHill.com)
