I bought one of theses wrought iron tree in silver a few years ago and have been searching for another as a gift. These trees sell for two to three times this amount on boutique sites! Everyone loves it! It is so easy to assemble and store. I collect blown glass ornaments and they really shine on this tree. Wish I could buy one for everyone.

The tree is attractive and, obviously, makes no pretense of trying to masquerade as a pine tree! But it looks lovely in my living room, was easy to decorate and shows off my (mainly glass) ornaments beautifully, and there is no mess to clean up. One reviewer said it would be hard to put lights on the tree. I bought 4 strings of tiny LED lights and circled them around all the "branches" and "trunk" and they look beautiful. A few of the "branches" were harder to insert than others but, aside from that, assembly was really easy. All in all.....a terrific purchase.

This is potentially a home-run product. But due to incomplete manufacturing standards, this product is stranded on third base. This tree requires two tapered shims (not provided) to stand straight. Manufacturer should make a serious attempt at producing a precision stand. Or at the very least, they should provide suitable means to level the stand without need for shims.
I had seen this tree in several catalogs over the years offered at $XXX. I thought it would be an excellent alternative to dragging an extremely heavy prelit tree up and down from the attic every year. In fact I often made up excuses not to put up a tree just because of the inconvenience. This year I was going to have my first Christmas alone as a retiree and I decided to purchase this tree. I read the reviews as was concerned about the assembly issues mentioned in some - not being a welder! But I decided to take the chance. Boy, am I glad I did. The tree was simple to assemble and lightweight enough in its box to move about the apt. All of the brackets were in place and easy to access. The branches slid easily in and were spaced beautifully to show off my ornaments. I wrapped the center of the tree with a strand of lights to add some evening sparkle. Assembly took less than 15 minutes and then it was on to the best part of decorating a tree - placing the ornaments and remembering the significance of each one in my life. This unique tree is everything I was promised and more. Non-traditional but still a delightful centerpiece of my Christmas decorations. Thank you for offering this tree at such a value.
The workmanship and quality isn't good. Had I bought this tree in a store I probably would have returned it. Screwing the trunk pieces together was difficult and definitely needs some lubricant. Most of the limb pieces slipped in to the trunk easily but some were difficult. I had to pry open the slot to fit some of the branches. It was obvious the welds for the slots were weak and although none broke while adjusting them, I can see this happening. The branches don't hang evenly. Some are higher and some are lower than the other branches on the tier. The paint was chipped and scratched. It will definitely need some touch up painting. I expected it to be wrought iron not painted metal....very disappointing!
I am glad I purchased thsi tree -- can't wait to use it next Christmas (only 10 months away). The tree was easy to assemble, but it does not want to break down, oh well, I'll store it fully assembled in the garage. The braches seem to fit in specific slots -- just keep trying the branches until you find the one that fits the slot perfectly.

Great idea and would be good product if it fit together. It was like a zigzagged 3 main pieces and was by no means even close to being straight. Returned it and until corrected made, not only would I not recommend it, I would warn people to not even consider buying it.
The first tree had a crooked base. Overstock provided an email w/ UPS return label and provided an instant credit. The other tree arrived in perfect order and assembled easily. I started with all my favorite ornaments. Still needed more! Used every ornament. Still needed more. Took photos of grandsons and created an instant photo to hang. Next year I may scan photos of sons, grand children and make a photo tree. I will not un assemble the tree, just store w/out bulbs each year. I am worried the screw connectors could get damaged taking apart year after year and not come together straight or at all.
Wow! I've been looking for an over-sized display tree for years! This tree is exactly what I need to display a large collection of crystal and hand-blown glass Christmas ornaments. Easy to put together and very sturdy. Cannot wait to see it with all of my ornaments on it.
When I posted the tree on Facebook, everyone asked about it. I bought it because I love wrought iron. I also do shows in my home where people display things-the show is this weekend and everything looks great.. This year we are traveling a bit so instead of putting up another tree I am going to use this one.
