Our real palm tree kicked the dust. We were looking at the fake trees, but the "good" ones were just over the top expensive. I was pricing them between $800-$1300 locally in Austin Texas. I decided to check Overstock, and saw the reviews on this one. Decided to risk it, I am picky, but the price was right, so thought I would just order it and cross my fingers! At first I didn't like it. My daughter thought it looked fake. We did a lot of bending the leaves and making it look better. After about 5 hours, it seems the tree started to settle and once the branches opened up a lot more it took on a much more natural look. We have an entryway with a 2 story ceiling, and this tree is one of the focal points. It fills quite a space and I think the value is there. I am glad I took the chance on this tree!
I'm a yuppy with high end, nice furnishings. Was very skeptical about buying an artificial plant of any kind because if it looks fake, it's just tacky and depressing. I was very skeptical about this palm tree before it arrived, despite the rave reviews. It's actually much better, and more lush in person. Unless you are a foot away from it, you really can't tell it's not real except for a couple of small areas where there is a piece of exposed metal or a more artificial look where you attach the the branches. You can turn the tree to hide that completely, no worries. Overall, it is absolutely striking, and fills up the corner of the room from floor to ceiling. Best $*** ever spent. I'd buy from this company again in an instant. Trust me, I'm picky.
I am an interior designer and ordered this tree for a client project. It looks awesome and is huge and leafy, the green looks realistic and it doesn't look too plastic. As a comparison, I ordered a 6' different tree on overstock at the same time for another client and it looks awful so there really is a difference. I will be ordering this one again without a doubt for other projects.
I was looking for quality 6'+ trees for my living room and I found them with this product. The trees are very life-like that can easily be put together and with fronds that are also easy to arrange and manipulate. The pots that come with it are too small to support the large tree but I was planning on getting pots that went with my decor anyway. I recommend keeping the styrofoam packing forms that the tree pot comes in to put into a new, larger pot for added stability. I just put the entire original pot into the new pot along with the sytrofoam packing material and then covered them with artificial moss. I couldn't be happier, the trees look great!
This is the best palm tree ever because it has adjustable fronds. I dont mean because you can bend them you can do that on any of them. On the stock of the tree each set of fronds turn. You can turn it so that each set off set against the other. I read the reviews and either missed anyone else mentioning this or I just didnt understand what they meant. This is so beautiful. I did not bend or make any adjustments other than turning them and it is amazing. Dont miss this one.
I love the look of plants in certain areas of the house. The only problem is that real plants sometimes just don't make it. And if you're spending a lot for a large palm (equal to the size of the 8 ft. Golden Cane Palm), that's a big expense and a lot of money down the drain! Not to mention the upkeep to keep the plant looking its best. On the other hand, some artificial plants/trees just look so artificial that they seem cheesy. That being said, I really needed a large palm in my living room and since it would be on display for all to see, I wanted it to look as real and as beautiful as possible. I also like the idea of little to no care. After looking for what seemed like a good year, I came across this one and at the price Overstock offered it at, I decided to just go for it. I am glad I did. The tree is tall and beautiful. It fills the spot I intended it for perfectly. It's gorgeous. I like it so much I jumped right back onto Overstock and ordered another one! If you go for this palm, be prepared to place it (the palm and container it comes in) into another decorative planter. The one it comes in is not intended to be a show piece. That was fine for me because I already had a gorgeous pot to put it into and I could not be happier. This was well worth the price. A great find!

I bought this tree for our elevator entrance. It filled the corner beautifully and placed a wing chair next to it; extremely inviting. The item arrived immediately in perfect condition. I simply inserted the top tier into the bottom tier and clicked it in, placed the pot (despite its small size actually holds the tree up very well and thus very stable) into another more visually appealing clay pot, and arranged the fronds a bit to make it look more realistic. The tree looks wonderfully real, specially the trunk. Because I was so happy with this merchandise I purchased two more for another area in my property. At this price, you will have no regrets purchasing this tree.

I purchased this plant for my husband's office. The plant itself is beautiful and very lifelike. However, the planter is way too small for the tree. Just be aware that when you purchase the tree, you must also get a nice size planter for it.
Since I'm away from home for months at a time, real plants just aren't an option. However, I love the warm feeling that plants give to a home. This plant is perfect! It looks very realistic and is so much better than the neglected real plants that used to be in this space. I shopped locally and nothing could touch this price. A very good value. I just ordered another in a different style
We have almost 11 foot ceilings in our modern-style townhome, so we needed to add decor that adds height. We picked this out to add to the subtle tropic theme of the home (no flip flops, think jute rugs, light-colored wood floors, large square capriz chandelier, etc). The branches are movable and do need to be shaked out a bit to make it look more lively. It is a great piece, but I find myself constantly trying to twist and turn branches to make it more authentic looking. So you need to spend time adjusting it to fit appropriately in its designated space. It looks lovely though!
I am beyond thrilled with my purchase. The plant looks very real and very beautiful in my living room. We put it in a large corner of the room and it looked extremely impressive. I get tons of compliments and would definitely reorder from this company again for more plants.
I didn't think this was going to work in my living room. I thought it would be to tall and I was planning on sending it back. I decided to open it and just see and to my surprise it fit and it's so beautiful. I love it and I'm keeping it! It is the best looking palm tree I ever seen. I am happy happy happy!
I searched a long time for a this type of tree! The GCP is very pretty and full. Large enough to fill a corner in my living room with very high ceilings. It is very real looking and has fooled several people :) My only hesitance in giving it 5-stars is that when adjusting the branches (which needs to be done) you need to be very careful as I did break one-ouch! Now I can't bend that one branch because I am afraid it will break completely off. Other than that if you are looking for a really nice-high end looking tree-go for this!
It isn't as full as the picture shows. Where the portions fit together you can see the metal. I will have to figure something out to cover the poor quality . I'm going to have to stuff it in a corner and bend the branches so it looks fuller. I would have returned it but I'm too busy to deal with it.
I love this plant. It looks great beside my front door transom and was easy to put together. It is a bit heavy and leans so make sure to have a good planter with a lot of support. I bought a can of great stuff foam but haven't fixed it up yet. I elevated my plant in the pot so it can be even taller. The fronds swivel around the center stem, which allow you to customize this plant as you please. I'm happy with it.
