Artificial Tree Warranty Policy 

As a courtesy to our customers, if a light set fails on your tree during the first, second or third year from the date of purchase, Hillcrest Garden Center will make a reasonable effort to get the light set working.  This includes inspecting the set, making sure all connections are secure and if required, shocking the set with a low jolt of electricity.  If we are unable to repair your light set, we will take your tree back and offer you a store credit for the price you paid for the tree.  If the light set has failed due to an extensive amount of lights burnt out, we will not return the tree.  

If the lights on your tree fail after the first 3 years from the date of purchase, we will attempt to fix the lights for a fee.  An estimate will be provided before fixing the lights.  If you do not want the tree repaired, we will take back your tree and will offer you a 10% discount on the purchase of a new tree.  For the longevity of the light strands, you are expected to replace bulbs as they burn out.
