New Year, Christmas tree, technology

By the New Year, it is customary to decorate houses and cities. Christmas trees are placed in squares, schools and shopping centers. We are used to seeing live or artificial Christmas trees, in garlands, balls and other toys. But for some, such Christmas trees look too simple. They do not cause surprise and delight, but only boredom.

There are other trees too. High tech. Let's talk about them today.

A bit of history. When did they start making artificial Christmas trees?

The first artificial Christmas trees appeared in the United States in the early 18th century in Pennsylvania. Not everyone could get a live Christmas tree, so many began to make them from wood. The first Christmas trees looked like cones that were painted green.

At the end of the 19th century, they began to make Christmas trees from thin slats. Goose feathers were tied to the frame with thin wire, which were painted green. But it didn't look very attractive.

Over time, the technology was improved: a strong wire was attached to a smooth wooden pole, which imitated branches. But they did not get rid of goose feathers.

The artificial Christmas tree familiar to us appeared about a hundred years ago, when industrial chemistry and mass production appeared.

Materials for making artificial Christmas trees

PVC

The most economical option. The branches of such a Christmas tree are made of a wire base, which is twisted together with a thin film of PVC material.

Line

Expensive, but more realistic and beautiful option. Such Christmas trees are almost impossible to distinguish from natural ones. Each branch is molded from dense rubber in individual molds. The needles are voluminous, with pointed tips, but do not prick.

Optical fiber

The brightest option is fiber optic spruce. The needles of such a tree are made of luminous optical fiber. Therefore, not only needles glow, but also branches.

But not always the material of a high-tech Christmas tree ends with fiber optics.

For example, the 2018 New Year tree in Athens was made of metal.

The Christmas tree of Minsk in 2019 was decorated with three thousand balls of different diameters. For illumination, pixel graphics were used, thanks to which images were projected onto the Christmas tree.

In Rio de Janeiro in 2011, a floating Christmas tree 85 meters high was installed. It is recognized as the largest in the world and is listed in the Guinness Book of Records. The structure is made of steel and weighs 542 tons. There are approximately 3.3 million light bulbs on the Christmas tree. In addition to the fact that the tree is unusually decorated and glows brightly, a light show is launched around it, and beautiful images are projected onto the tree itself. The illumination is controlled by a computer system.

But such a construction is as costly as it is beautiful. The diesel generators that power the Christmas tree are enough to power a small town.

Another unusual material for Christmas trees is glass .

Murano glass originated in Venice. In 2006, on the eve of Christmas, local glassblowers made a gift to the city - a glass Christmas tree. Its height reached 8.5 meters, width - 3 meters, weight - 3 tons. It was made from 1000 glass tubes, 2000 metal rods and placed on one of the central squares.

But all of the above technologies and materials are inferior to the following example.

Australian Peter Terren (Peter Terren) in 2007 created a tree of Tesla coils. It is a resonant transformer that produces high voltage. Very hard and dangerous work.

To capture the tree, Peter used long exposures and multicolored filters. The very formula of the "Christmas tree" did not change - it was "outlined" by electrical discharges, which are created by the rotating rod of the Tesla coil. Of course, you can’t put gifts under such a Christmas tree, you can’t put it in the city center or in an apartment. But it looks bewitching.

How artificial Christmas trees are made today

At the factory, needles are made from thin ribbons that are wound on bobbins. They are cut with cylindrical knives. Between the tapes, the machine threads the wire and twists them around its axis at high speed. This is how a coniferous garland appears. Then the machine cuts the garland into small branches and winds it onto a thicker wire. It turns out another garland, but with branches. Finally, the finished needles are cut manually into branches, and manually or with the help of a machine, they are attached to the trunk.

The creation process may differ slightly, but, in general, it is about the same.

But you can make a smart Christmas tree in other ways.

It is not necessary to build complex structures with coils and generators. You can decorate ordinary living or artificial trees.

For example, every year the main Christmas tree in Lithuania is decorated with toys and garlands. Looks no worse than the options with illumination.

And in the ancient city of Gubbio in northern Italy, the tree can be seen from anywhere in the city. This is because this light installation is located on Mount Ingino. Its area is comparable to 3 football fields - 130,000 square meters. m., height - more than 650 m.

To create it, 300 green light bulbs were used for the outline and 400 multi-colored light bulbs for decoration. At the top of the mountain there is a star-comet of 250 light bulbs with an area of ​​1,000 square meters. m. All this connects about 7500 meters of cable.

But all this is too complicated, costly and large-scale. How to decorate a Christmas tree at home?

For example, smart garlands. Some are attached not only to Christmas trees, but also to furniture using double-sided tape. They are controlled by a remote control or through a mobile application via Wi-Fi.

For example, the garland of the company Twinkly. In the application, you can come up with your own animation and project it onto the Christmas tree. And yet, the animation effects adjust to the music.

Care of the artificial Christmas tree

The time has come to decorate the apartment for the New Year. But before you take the tree out of the box and put toys and garlands on it, you should put the tree in order.

So that the tree has time to straighten up after a long wait in the box, it is better to collect it a couple of weeks before the holiday. Also, use a steamer.

Some trees can be washed. But before that, read the instructions, otherwise the iron base may rust after washing.

If washing the Christmas tree is prohibited, use a vacuum cleaner. It will help get rid of the dust. After that, wipe each branch with a damp cloth.

Use only dry wipes and rags to clean LED trees.

It is better not to wash the tree before storage - there is a possibility that it will not have time to dry completely. Even a small amount of moisture will spoil the material.

The best place to store an artificial Christmas tree is a dry, dark room, without sudden changes in temperature. It is better to store in a dense case that does not let in sunlight and dust. So the tree will retain color longer.

A fairly simple care process that will extend the life of an artificial tree.

And something else important

If you properly care for an artificial tree, it will serve as a decoration for your home for many years.

Of course, it is up to everyone to decide how to decorate an apartment: with a living tree, artificial, garlands or not decorate at all.

However, Christmas trees certainly create coziness and fill the atmosphere with a festive mood.

The choice is yours. And we want to wish you a Happy New Year.

Let your spirits be uplifted no matter what decorations are around.

GST command.

P. S. And yes, the durability of Christmas decorations is affected not only by proper care, but also by four-legged friends. Think about protecting the tree in advance if there are those in your house who can encroach on it.
