For years I had gotten a real Frasier fir Christmas tree, but this year I was just tired of the mess, the drying out of the branches, the sticky sap, the $50-$75 price tag, and the drooping limps, so I decided on buying a fake tree with the key criteria that it be full and at least 7 feet tall, plus without lights (I already lights and I wanted flexibility to change colors or blinking lights in the future). I was willing to pay about $200 if the tree met my key criteria and was indeed beautiful. I sent my husband out to buy this tree solely based on the online reviews and without having seen it. I must admit, despite the rave reviews, I was extremely skeptical about this tree and the entire time we were assembling it, I was trying to find fault so I could return it. Well, after it was assembled and branches fluffed out, I was amazed to discover how full and beautiful this tree was and for only $78! I added my lights and other decorations and my tree was absolutely spectacular! One of my favorite things about having a “fake” tree is when I add heavier ornaments on the ends of the branches, instead of them sliding off, now I simply bend up the limp and it keeps the ornament in place! Could I have gotten a tree with branches that look more realistic? Sure, but I’m also sure I would have paid significantly more for it (someone I know paid $300 for their fake tree and compared to mine, it’s not better). In all honesty, it’s not like people go up and examine the tree branches. Once it’s all decorated, your attention is focused on the ornaments. I am extremely happy with this purchase and even though I was willing to pay up to $200 for a fake tree, I’m glad I ended up with a $78 purchase.
