What is a fibre optic Christmas tree?
A fibre optic tree uses LED technology to create the effect of a tree with lights. Most of the trees will have strands of plastic silica tubes surrounded by a reflective coating, which results in a beautiful display of lights. It works by simply plugging it into a socket, where you will see the ends of the branches light up or flicker between colours.
Are fibre optic Christmas trees safe?

According to research, fibre optic xmas trees are very energy efficient as they use 10 times less energy than the average Christmas bulbs. They can also last up to 20 years, making them safe and more economical.
