6.5' Flock- Frosted Fir Christmas Tree with Icicles & 5 Year LMW
Lovely Tree, No Decorating Required
This is a beautiful tree (I have the multi). Normally I'm not a huge fan of flocking, but I decided to try it out because it didn't look overly flocked and I couldn't resist the icicles. I gave this 4/5 stars for a couple of reasons:
1- There was a light out when I opened the box. Not a big deal at all because it did come with a bunch of replacement lights, but of course it would have been nice if I didn't have to use one right away.
2- It takes a while to get the branches looking just right. BUT after about 40 minutes, it was done, it looks great and feels sturdy.
There was another review that complained about the setup being too difficult--it's not! You literally stack the four pieces and then arrange the branches as you like. And as far as the flocking being a mess, honestly, there was a bit of flocking on the carpet but just vacuum the area after you set it up, it's not a big deal AT ALL.
One Of The Best Trees Out There!
My husband and I wanted to down grade to an easier to assemble smaller tree then we have had previous years. I've done an obnoxious amount of research while shopping for a new tree. I went to every store I could find that carried LED artificial trees in the Tri-State area. Besides spending hours online looking at site after site for the perfect tree. My problem was not many companies have 6' 5" trees with LED lights. Those that do the color of the tree is too Crayola green or the branches look fake and plastic and the lights were always that harsh blue/white color. We were just about to have a tree custom made till I stumbled upon this tree online.
The tree is really easy to assemble being it comes in 4 pieces(base and three sections) and three wires plugs into a box, that plugs into the wall. Unlike our last tree where each branch had to be plugged into the base(49 pieces plus the base came in three parts). This tree is a dark pine green and one of the best part is that the branches go all the way up to the top of the tree. Some artificial trees don't seem to know what to do at the top and have random straight branches that come out reminding me of those mini artificial Christmas trees. This has really tiny branches that have to be opened up and fluffed at the top just like the rest of the tree. The shape of this tree is also much more gradual then most of the other slim trees. The spacing of the branches is perfect not to full not too thin. I'm originally from Seattle and this reminds me exactly of the trees we use to go out and cut when I was a child. Just with this one we don't have to brush the snow off before we set it up in the house.
The main selling point for me though were the lights. I love the look of incandescent lights but they waste so much electricity, I'd never buy them. The LED lights are hidden inside of a transparent yellow/white incandescent case, it's really hard to tell that there is a difference till you get up close. As for the LED icicles I thought at first that they were at the end of every branch, but as I fluffed out the tree I noticed they are more random. A couple of branches don't have them, some have two and they aren't always on the end of the main branch. It makes them appear more natural. They complement the flocking and my collection of crystal snowflakes and icicles.
Is the flocking messy? Yes! Is it messier then any other flocked tree? No. I waited till my tree was up and decorated to vacuum, but then I've had flocked trees in the past and I knew they shed. My tree has been up now for three weeks(the tree came much earlier then I expected it would) and hasn't continued to shed. Unlike real flocked trees I've had where you end up vacuuming about every other day.
Overall I'm completely satisfied with this purchase and I don't think I could have wished for a better tree.
PERFECT FOR ME AND BEAUTIFUL!!!
I wanted a flocked tree but not a big tree and this is Perfect for me. This tree is on the slimmer side, not heavy and easy to assemble. I ordered the clear lights and when they reflect with the flocking, absolutely beautiful. I did not find the plugging of each of three pieces to be a problem, rather simple really. Once it is fluffed out, so to speak, oh my goodness it is so pretty and with decorations it is a WOW for me. I am hoping this will be my tree for many years to come. Oh yeah it comes with a lot of replacement bulbs and if one bulb goes out it is OK because the rest remain on. Was it messy, yes a little, but I think that is the case with any flocked tree, but after the initial taking out of the box it isn't a problem. Highly recommend.
I love this tree!
This tree was very easy to put together once we read the directions and figured it out. Once it is fluffed out it is just beautiful! I got the multicolored lights tree & it reminds me of the real trees we decorated in the 60's when I was a little girl. It is just breathtaking lit! It is a fir tree, so it is not very full, but that's the way a real fir tree is. Mine works great! I love it! It has so many lights on it that it even looks good without ornaments on it.
Received on Monday (11/18), was able to completely assemble this afternoon (11/22). The way the sections "connect" to one adapter (?) at the bottom of the tree and then that adapter is attached to a cord that is plugged into the wall is absolutely the most REDICULOUS thing I have ever seen when it comes to the assembly and lighting of an artificial tree. Once I got the tree assembled, it did NOT work! Not even a twinkle. The flocking created a huge mess, I had to vacuum twice during the assembly process. This imposter of a tree is being returned tomorrow...even with the cost of $10.95 return shipping. Definitely NOT worth the bother to try to make work!! I'd give this ZERO stars if possible, what a big disappointment!
