Bethlehem Lights 7.5' Ashford Pine Christmas Tree w/Instant Power
Love this tree!!!
I was looking for a new tree and happened to be watching QVC when they were presenting this tree early in November and I was hesitant at first because I like to look at my trees in person before buying it. Well, I recieved my 7 1/2 foot tree sooner than the EDD and I was so excited to get it out of the box and set it up! For me, I had no problems, it was a little heavier than I thought it would be though. I put it all together, which didn't take long at all. I plugged it in and wow, it was beautiful and brightly lit!!! I love the foot pedal. The color of the tree is a deep green with beautiful pine needles just the right length for me, which I imagined it to be and the tree was nice and full and I love the pinecones!!! Thank You QVC.
Beautiful Tree But......
This is a beautiful lush looking tree. As other reviewers have stated it is heavy and a bit awkward to assemble. My problem is that no matter what I did there is a big gap between the top and middle section and it leans. I took it apart and put it back together multiple times and gently adjusted the branches to no avail. (branches are on hinges and can't really be manipulated). For the cost of the tree I would return it except for the cost of shipping! I will try the Bethlehem lights and see what they have to say.
A beautiful tree... easy assembly, just need to make sure that the slight bump on each pole is correctly lined up with the open groove, and completely pushed down... money well spent!
This tree is beautiful but it is not easy to put together as demonstrated on TV. Just getting it out of the box was a workout. I'm going to have to call in help since the tree is not lighting. The bottom section lit up initially but now doesn't. The middle piece never did light and now I can't even get the middle piece off of the base. I need to call in a friend. I hope, hope, hope that this tree will eventually light since it would be a nightmare to return. Once again, lovely quality but I have not enjoyed the process of putting it together. Wish me luck!
Lovely tree BUT......
I think the tree is very full and lovely. The down side is the weight of the tree. Like the other reviewer, I purchased the tree because the presenter made it look easy/not very heavy. The middle piece is very heavy and lining the tree up perfectly to insert the prongs is very difficult because it's so heavy. I really want to send it back because it defeats the purpose of me buying a new tree, I just don't want to deal with the hassle and cost of sending it back.
A little disappointed
Received my 7 and a half foot tree today. I think the presentation was a little deceptive. For a woman it isn't easy. It's heavy and I have one strand of lights that I can' t get to come on. So frustrated. Will have to call handy man to come figure it out. It is a beautiful tree, just more heavy and difficult than I expected. They had a young girl demonstrate it but I'm sure re they probably had her do the smaller one and of course all the lights came on immediately.
Loving my new tree.
This was such a awesome buy, and I love the flex plan on it. I order it on Nov 8, 2013 and I received on Nov. 12, 2013 super fast. I took it out the box put it together, it turned out to be such a nice tree so many light really bright. I love the pine cones such a nice touch that it brings to the tree. I'm glad I made this purchase. Also very easy to put together .
When I received this tree, I immediately wanted to set it up. Unfortunately, one string of lights on the bottom would not light. Same problem with the top. After searching to make sure all the plugs were in, I started checking lights. I found "3" light bulbs that were totally broken off which caused the problem. Once replaced, the tree came on!!!
Since the tree is secured with yellow bands that come through the box to the outside, I think someone tried to use them as handles and perhaps the pressure helped to break the bulbs. The tree is everything they said on air. I'm extremely happy and hope it lasts a long time. 5 year warranty is a plus.
I have been looking for a new artificial tree for the last couple of years. I decided on this one because of the full look of the tree- and on the presentation I like not being able to see thru the tree. This tree was so easy to put up. I chose the multi light and just like they said on QVC- the tree was absolutely beautiful - even before decorations. Love the easy on/off switch. So glad i purchased this tree. Love the long needle pine look-multi tip- subtle amount of pine cones.
Wish is was Christmas all year long!
I've been on the market for a new tree since my last year tree had to be returned from BL. I've been patient with new releases, doing research, reading reviews........ I decided to give BL another shot as well as this tree (which has no reviews yet). I had 2 slim trees from BL for about 12 years and they were great but now I wanted something more full in a new home....I also wanted something VERY green (dark green--Lisa was right about the color), not too wide (like a balsam firs are) but something full......this is a PERFECT rich green color and perfect size tree! Its that "in betweener" size tree. I lost my living room to child toys and slide the tree in the corner of the room....I was going to get the new balsam trees but then I looked at the 54"width and knew that would be too much for the corner and slim trees, while nice.......doesn't always have the fullness I want......if you are looking for fullness, the kind of tree you see in the forest that's picture perfect, and one with plenty of lights, and rich color, this is your tree. It really is pretty with no decorations (Lisa was right again!)....and it really required NO fluffing.......
I cannot say it was as EASY to put together as demonstrated....but it was not difficult either. I consider myself strong but this definately has some weight to it so try to line up the arrows (one of mine was missing on one piece) as best as you can to ensure you aren't holding it too long.......but so far so good......its so pretty it warrants 5 stars! Glad i waited and wasn't impulsive on a tree purchase. There is a CLEAR difference from a 300-400 dollar tree to the 100-200 dollar trees you see in retail stores. Would love to keep this up all year!
