I recommend to my clients that they stop buying pre-lit trees and switch over to the new 500,000 burn hour led-lighted garlands. Light up a tree so fast this way and never again fight through the frustration of burnt out strings of lights.
This is the assortment of bulbs that went on this tree. They are the exclusive designs of Jim Marvin, who is the designer of the White House Christmas for the last 22 years. With these new led-lighted garlands, you do not need any other lights. The 3.9′ garlands are so bright with each supporting 490 lights.
