Authenticity of Our Artificial Plants & Trees

There are many companies that manufacture artificial plants and trees, and we at Commercial Silk Int'l strive to create the most authentic and realistic artificial products technology can provide.

What makes us different?

Foliage

We use premium grade and the most botanically correct foliage in the market. Our foliage is treated with a special coating that gives it a more realistic feel and is easy to clean. Our UV (Ultraviolet) artificial foliage is created through a process where ultraviolet blocking chemicals are impregnated directly into the materials. We also offer optional IFR (Inherently Fire Retardant) foliage for compliance with fire code requirements.

Foliage

We use the finest wood trunks from specialized harvesters that are hand selected for each tree. It allows us to combine the exact shapes needed to achieve the desired look. We have access to tree varieties not elsewhere found in the United States which provides distinctive, one-of-a-kind artificial trees. Our sculpted stems are hand made by our skilled artists to replicate authentic looking trees. Every detail from the bark texture, color and unique characteristics are expertly recreated.

Foliage

We secure our trunks in PVC collars and embed them into a reinforced base which prevents deterioration. We also offer optional steel base plates that may be bolted into the floor for a permanent installation. We build custom base plates for a variety of applications and also manufacture a large selection of commercial planters that can be potted with our trees and plants for a turnkey solution.

Foliage

We offer optional branch additions that increase a tree's density. Our branches have tapered tips that provide a smooth transition from branch to foliage. Branch cuts and imperfections are hand painted to blend with the stem coloration. Major stems are cabled or wired together to preserve the tree's shape.

We take pride in each and every artificial plant and tree that we make and constantly strive to produce the most realistic artificial products on the market. View our entire gallery of products.

Misconceptions About Artificial Plants

There are many misconceptions about artificial plants including their cost, maintenance, authenticity, and benefits in comparison to live plants. At Commercial Silk Int'l, our technological advancements with artificial greenery have paved a new path for the silk industry.

More often than not, silk plants are believed to be expensive. In reality, the price range for artificial options vary greatly and there are a variety of solutions to meet every budget when utilizing silk plants. Similar to cars, there are used Chevy trucks and high end Maseratis in the world of plants. The initial investment may be high, but the return is far greater due to their longevity and low maintenance.

In regards to maintenance, silk plants are often thought to be a hassle to clean and delicately constructed. Most artificial plants only require a light cleaning every six months which involves a light dusting or a damp wipe down. While real plants require water, fertilization, light and proper soil, artificial plants need no water, no fertilization, no light nor soil. Silk plants are virtually maintenance-free. The dark corner of your bedroom is no match for a real hibiscus, but an artificial one provides the same beauty and charm without requiring special light. A desert may be no match for a real ivy covered trellis, but an artificial one made with our UV protected leaves will last years without any care. Our artificial plants at Commercial Silk Int'l require no soil – each plant is anchored in a secure grow pot filled with foam or concrete, or industrial strength base.

Silk plants are often thought of as looking plastic and fake. At Commercial Silk Int'l, high attention to detail is paid to the components and construction of each artificial product. When compared side by side, it is almost impossible to identify which plant is real and which is fake.

The benefits of utilizing plants in spaces are widely known and artificial plants provide many of the same. Greenery, whether live or artificial, adds energy and provides warmth to a space. Artificial plants add tranquility and a sense of well-being. The use of real and fake plants in the workplace has proven to boost productivity and lower stress levels. Plants help absorb noise and produce a calming effect in a workspace.
