FAQ’s With Christmas Tree Lighting

What is your warranty on Pre-lit Christmas Trees and Pre-lit Items?

Construction: Ten Year Warranty on Tree Construction and Pipe. Repair/replace defective parts only and does not imply entire tree replacement.

Lights: Limited One Season Warranty on Tree Lights. Burned out bulbs are not covered under warranty. Christmas lights are intended for seasonal use only (outdoor lighting with special order). Longer use of lights during the season (on 24 hours per/day 7 days a week) or beyond Christmas season will result in shorter life of the lights. LED lights are intended to last longer than regular mini lights. Standard life for regular mini lights is about 1,500 hours. The life of LED lights are approx. up to 100,000 hours. Therefore during the first season, defective sections will be repaired or replaced after inspection. Burned out bulbs are NOT covered under warranty.

White and Flocked Trees: Yellowing will occur after some time and depends greatly on your use and storage. Heat will accelerate the yellowing process. It is important to store your tree in dry and cool place. We do not warrant against yellowing. Earthflora offers a flocking service. Please contact us for a quote to have your Christmas Trees, Wreaths or Garlands re-flocked. Trees purchased from only Earthflora can be re-flocked.

Explain the types of lights Earthflora carries

Earthflora’s Prelit Christmas Trees, Wreaths and Garlands consist of standard Mini Clear Lights or Multi-Colored Lights, Clear Always-Lit Lights, or Warm-White LED Lights, and Battery Operated Lights. 50 Count LED light strands are also available for purchase.

What should I do if my Christmas Tree has a strand of lights out?

Know what type of lights are on your tree. Replacements lights are available for LED lights. However, if they are regular, standard mini-lights then follow up by:

1. Check the cord of your Christmas tree to make sure it’s plugged in properly. Also if you have a tree with multiple sections, check that each section is plugged into the next section correctly.

2. Look at the strand of lights that our out. Check each bulb to make sure it’s not loose, broken or black colored. Many lights will not operate properly if even one bulb is loose.

3. Tighten any loose bulbs. Copper wire outside the bulb should be aligned with the metal part. Check to make sure it is intact. The bulb should fit securely in the receptacle. If the bulb does not hit the metal wiring on one or both sides inside the sock it will not light properly. DO NOT PULL ON OR STRETCH THE ELECTRICAL CORD OR IT CAN CAUSE PERMANENT DAMAGE TO THE INSIDE WIRES. LIKE ANY ELECTRICAL CORD, HANDLE WITH CARE!! READ SET UP INSTRUCTIONS.

4. Replace any bulbs that are damaged or don't look like the others. Replacement bulbs and fuses are included with tree purchase.

5. After inspecting the bulbs, replace the fuse in the plug outlet area. A blown out fuse is hard to detect until you open the case and look at it. Most strands come with two fuses.

6. Refer to our light tester to find the individual bulb that is burnt out. Follow the instructions on the light tester. The tester will help locate the faulty bulb.*Our Pre-lit Christmas items come with a bag of replacement bulbs and replacement fuses. Use the replacement bulbs to fix any bulbs that are burned out.*Power strips are recommended for areas requiring use of more power.

Is lighting UL approved?

What is the best way to store my Christmas tree?

Carefully Store your tree in its original box, bag, or container to protect it from damage, dampness, dust, dirt, or being crushed. Store your tree in a dry and cool place. Avoid extreme heat over 100 F, freezing, or dampness that may cause damage to wiring.

Is it okay to use your Prelit Christmas Trees outdoors?

Before purchasing a Christmas tree, inform Earthflora's salesperson of your specific use such as installed Indoors, Seasonal vs Year-Round or Outdoors: Check type of lighting is on the tree first. Sealed bulbs work best if tree will be installed outdoors for long periods of time.

What does full wave mean?

Full wave refers to current flowing 100% in an AC Cycle. LED Christmas lights are considered “full wave or fully rectified” with less flickering of the light. Although it's still flickering, it can only be seen with the naked eye.

What does Warm White LED mean?

White color varies when it comes to LED light bulbs. It's important to understand what you are purchasing. Our LED lights are “warm white”. This means they give off a slight yellow color tone rather than the blue tone. Warm White LED's are similar to the color tones used in regular mini incandescent lights.
