Why does Oncor mainly produce hooked trees instead of hinged trees?

Hooked trees are flat-packed in smaller tree boxes with individual branches. This reduces packaging sizes and saves on packaging materials and freight. This is one of Oncor's eco-friendly measures to minimize our environmental footprint.

Additionally, hooked trees can support more decorations than similarly-sized hinged trees and are easier to shape tree branches tip by tip. As such, hooked trees may look much fuller after shaping.
