Aluminum Christmas Trees,

Here are some pictures of a few of the aluminum trees offered for sale from 1960 through about 1970. Keep checking back, as this section will be growing constantly!

1959-  Here is one of the first models of aluminum trees offered by The Aluminum Specialty Company of Manitowoc, Wisconsin. It was called a "Waterfall", and is four feet tall. The color wheel shown with it was not included.
1960- A second-year production model of Aluminum Specialty's Evergleam tree-the flagship of their aluminum "Permanent Tree" line. Notice that it is a bit fluffier than its predecessor, and contains more branches as well. This model is a five footer, but four and six foot trees were also available.
1960- Here is a fine example of the Evergleam Pom-Pom Permanent Tree. Notice that the flared branch ends add a sense of fullness to the tree, This is a six foot model. The white metal stand is an aftermarket product that was quite popular for use with these trees. It rotates, and also contains a music box that tinkles a merry rendition of "Jingle Bells".
1961- Here is a competitor's brand of Pom-Pom tree, manufactured by Silver Forest. It has an unusual and quite attractive metallic cardboard stand included with the tree, a step up from the more traditional (and less expensive) metal tripod stands. This is a particularly hard to find tree.
1962- Shown here is a marvelous variation on the aluminum trees-a flocked six footer. This model, manufactured by The Aluminum Specialty Company is shown in an optional rotating musical stand, and is in exceptional condition. Decorated with pastel colored glass balls typical of the 1960s, the tree was quite a spectacle. Examples of these trees found today often have their flocking turned a soft beige color due to age, but they are still most attractive. The small picture is a close-up of the branches.
1962- A "Fountain Style" Aluminum Specialty Company tree in a four foot size. The typical metal tripod stand can easily be seen, and is of the type that was included with all of this company's trees.
1963- A very hard to find 7 foot Pom-Pom Evergleam tree, complete with the original tripod stand. Seven foot models are few in number, and this example has survived the years quite well.
Here is an interesting little half-wall tree from the collection of Scott Zimmerman. Trees like this were often used in offices, and in homes above the mantle, usually in pairs. These trees are quite hard to find today.  
1963- From Keystone, a typical four foot Pom-Pom style tree. Compare this brand to others on the page, and you will note little difference between them.
