OK, Ladies and gentlemen. I don't usually write reviews. If I like something, I keep it, and if I don't I send it back. My tree came today (clear lights). I had made up my mind that if I could not have this tree, then I wouldn't put one up. I want to give you a few tips that will help you. If you are expecting a light weight tree, forget it. Each section is very heavy. I am a very strong woman, and I was shocked. Now, be prepared, and have a jar of vaseline handy. After your put the stand together, instead of trying to put the tree in the stand, turn the first part upside down so you can see, and put the stand into the tree. Make sure you look at the plug, the wide prong and the narrow one. Line them up. The sections do not just drop into place. Put the vaseline on the outside and it will slide right in. It takes a long time to separate the branches and shape the tree. I would advise that you leave it up, if you can. If you are going to put it in a corner, tie a piece of the packing cord to the place that you have chosen for the front. Be careful taking the extra bulbs off the lights so that you don't damage the cord. Like many of you have said, it is so beautiful just like it is with the lights on. If you have to put it in another room until you decorate it, don't try to carry it. If you have it, get a piece of slick cloth, like satin or something smooth. Put it under the stand, hold the end in one hand and grab the tree trunk in the other. pull the cloth while holding the trunk and it will move easily. When you have to store it, MAKE SURE to protect it, that you put it in a very dry place. I know from past experience that the wire will rust and turn the flocking an ugly dark yellow. I hope that my tips will help someone. Put heavy duty, carpenter trash bags over it until time to decorate. Light will turn it yellow. By the way, the trash bags would be perfect to pull the tree on.

I purchased this tree last year and loved it! So this year I decided to purchase another one. Unfortunately the tree had flocking covering the bulbs, so I returned it. The 2nd tree didn't have nearly as much flocking so I returned it. I decided to try a 3rd tree only to be disappointed again. The lights are not wrapped around the branches, and not much flocking. The reason I wanted the tree was for the "snow" look. I am so disappointed I will send this back too. The only positive was customer service.

This tree is everything they say it is. It is a snap to assemble and just beautiful. Of course, there is a bit of shedding of the artificial snow when taking out of the box and assembling, but it is minimal and to be expected. It is a nice slim tree, but still appropriately full. If you order this one, you will not regret it.

I bought the 15th anniversary 7.5' tree during the Christmas in July sale. I wish I had known about this tree I would have ordered it instead. I wish I could trade it in for this one. The other is very pretty, good quality and very, very easy to set up. I just love the look of the flocking. It looks like just the right amount. I wouldn't mind even suffering through some shedding of the flocking material. It just seems too expensive and a lot of work to pack up and send back.

This is the most stunning tree I have ever seen! Lisa was right - it is perfect! No shedding of the flocking. The little that fell off came from the plastic wrap the extra lights were in. Extremely easy to assemble. Highly recommend this tree!

I ordered this tree last July in the clear lights from Lisa Robertson's Christmas in July show. This tree is beautiful and is exactly as she presented it. There was very little shedding and it was very easy to assemble. If you are looking for a flocked tree you will love this tree!

This tree is GLORIOUS!!!!! I ordered the multi and received it last week. Yes, it does shed; like any other Christmas Tree either real or fake. The box mine came in was practically empty with no loose snow on the bottom but when I went to set up the tree and I loosened the branches to make sure it worked I did have to clean up a lot of snow. I wanted a flocked tree so it's par for the course. I'm hoping it only shed so much because it was the first time opening it up, but again, I don't care because the tree is magical. Regardless of whether you want to or because you have to go fake; this is the prettiest Christmas Tree I've ever seen. I personally thought that 500 lights was a little skimpy but they really are all this tree needs. In fact, I've already decided that I only need to put on half the ornaments I usually do so as not to take away from the beauty of the tree.
I purchased the 7.5'. It's a great height for an eight foot ceiling, mine is nine foot but that gives me plenty of room for the tree topper of my choice. The overall width is not too wide or too slender, and it's full or dense with no holes and a beautiful natural design like real hanging tree branches.
This will be the most enchanting Christmas Tree I've ever had and it's only going to take me a fraction of the time to decorate. I mean come on, you plug in the one power cord from the base to the wall. Take 30 seconds to screw in the screws for the base, and then put the biggest piece on the pole. It really is like magic. Then take about another minute to add the middle and finally the top and you're good to glow. Now I will say that the first time I went to put the top section on it did not light up. I pulled it off and looked at the plug housing and it looked like a little bit more plastic was there then there needed to be. I just put the top on a little more forcefully, not much at all, and the plug went right in and it lit up. I stood back and was in awe like you'll be if you're smart enough to get one of these trees. Part of me wants to order another one just to have in case I'll ever have the room for 2 trees because, rest assured, this is a once in a lifetime kind of Christmas Tree!!! Can't wait for Christmas!!!!!!!!!!! Worth the $$$ without a doubt!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rated 4 out of 5 Beautiful, Messy and not exactly Easy
My tree was delivered 6 days ago and the box has been sitting in my dining room, undisturbed and unopened, until I decided to set it up today to make sure everything was good. I'm so glad I did. First off, lots and lots of flocking in the bottom of the box and all over the floor as I took everything out of the box. I mean, flocking everywhere and some of it was big chunks. After reading the instructions, I incorrectly put what turned out to be the middle section (B) into the stand first. I wondered why it didn't slide all the way down to the notch but it did light up as the instructions said it would if inserted correctly, so I proceeded, putting what turned out to be the bottom section (A) in next. DON'T DO THAT! Both sections lit up beautifully, but I thought the bottom looked skimpy and just weird. It took me a few minutes to figure out what was wrong. Then it took me an hour to get B and A separated. Finally resorted to using a little 3-in-1 oil and that did the trick. I then put A and B sections together in the correct order and proudly inserted the top, section C. Guess what? Most of the lights in the top section did not light up. Back to the instructions. It is not easy to search through even the smallest section of the tree, looking for a missing bulb. Took me another 30-45 minutes of painstakingly combing through the top section from every angle before I found 1 tiny bulb that had snapped off at the base. I replaced it , and boom, the entire tree lit up majestically. I love it and I'm very glad I got the pain and frustration over with before it was actually Christmas season. I do wonder why they taped multiple packets of extra bulbs onto branches all over the tree. They are difficult to reach and difficult to remove. I had to cut them off and you have to be careful not to damage the branches or the wiring. Why not just enclose one plastic bag containing extra bulbs and fuses in the box?
Rated 4 out of 5 by snc Beautiful, easy, but MESSY
Unlike the other reviewers, I had a MESS with the flocking. It was in the box, all over the floor and myself.
The tree really is beautiful! It was so quick and easy to set up, even the 1st time. The multi colored lights are the perfect combination with the flocking.
4 stars is for the messy part, other than that it is certainly worth 5 stars. But I figure, vacuuming up the flocking when once when it's put up & again when it's put away is still better than constantly vacuuming up pine needles! I can't wait for Christmas!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by T n Texas Absolutely Stunning
I purchased this last July. It is the most beautiful Christmas tree I have ever seen. It is by far the prettiest tree I have owned. It sold out in Lisa's July show in minutes. I have the clear lights in the 7 1/2 foot. I was thrilled to see it come back this year in the same exact design because I am getting the multi this year in the same size. I can't wait till it is time to decorate for Christmas with the multi. It is pricey but soooo worth it.

Absolutely beautiful. I have gotten so many complements. Do not hesitate you won't be disappointed!!! The flocking does not come off. Can't wait for it to come back into stock to purchase another one! Thanks Lisa!!
