The tree is gorgeous - even better looking than the ad here! The packaging was great, and there was no damage to the box or the tree. It took me about an hour to spread out the branches because I kept playing with them. I put the pot into another larger pot and filled it in with dirt for extra weight, then put that into a basket. It's in a corner of my living room where a live tree wouldn't get enough light, and looks stunning - exactly what I was hoping for! Can't say enough good things about this outstanding product!
I have shopped for 2 years for a realistic-looking ficus, to no avail. I am very picky! I was pleasantly surprised & impressed when it arrived. My children thought it was real! Great value for the price! I did place it in a larger, decorative container, as the original one is unattractive & small, but a FABULOUS purchase!
I'm very pleased with this purchase. I was concerned that a 6-foot tree in my small living room would be too large, but it's perfect next to a corner window. It arrived in very good condition with no leaves missing or broken off in the box. I've taken a bit of time to adjust the branches over the last week - a tweak here and there a couple times a day when I walk by - and now it looks perfect! It did have a rather funky damp odor the first couple days, but it's now fine. Highly recommend!
Overall we are pretty happy with this purchase. The tree looks nice in our living room and our only complaint is that the leaves look very dull and don't have the glossy sheen of a live ficus. On the other hand, I'm glad that the leaves aren't SUPER shiny where it looks totally fake! The tree trunk looks very life-like and the size was as described online. We were pretty disappointed with how this item was shipped by Overstock and fortunate that the tree wasn't totally destroyed en route. It appeared to have just been tossed in a box (not bagged well) that was not custom for the item and the box basically fell apart. All the moss had dumped out of the bucket and the box was barely holding together when we found it at the front door. I'm not sure how much of the blame should go to Overstock vs. FedEx, but we were disappointed with how this was shipped and handled.

This tree is wonderful looking. After 3 years of a REAL Birds of Paradise plant that finally died, we decided to replace it with a fake tree. After a few months of checking local stores, we found some on Overstock to our surprise. We ordered this tree and it arrived in a few days. It looks great. I put the base in the actual planter pot that my birds of paradise was in and covered it with white river rock. Then I put a string of lights it in. The tree naturally fluffed out after a few days. This is a great bargain and looks awesome in the corner of my living room.
This is my second silk ficus from Overstock. The first one was lovely for my larger space, but this one has an even better silhouette and distribution of leaves which suits my smaller space. The trunk is as pictured and the tree itself is light enough to move easily but not so much that it tumbles over. I put mine in a terracotta pot that measures the same at the inside bottom as the circumference of the bottom of the container the ficus is "planted" in. That works really well to keep the tree stable and natural-looking. These trees look their most natural in sunlight, so position them where they get bathed in light, natural or spotlight.
This was my first silk plant and I was concerned about spending so much. The tree arrived yesterday & it is beautiful. It only took a few minutes to stretch out the branches & it looks great! It does stink a little but perhaps that is normal. I looked at all the furniture stores before buying and this is by far the prettiest tree and the price is considerably less.

Great Tree. Bought this for my mom for mothers day. They'd had a similar ficus that met a bad end. I bought this one hoping it was of similar quality. It was better! Very full. The trunk looks very real, and is much better qualtiy than their previous tree. The pot is small, but the bottom of the tree is very heavy, so it does stand in such a small pot. Get a decorative pot to compliment your deor, and this is the prefect tree. Very real looking.
This is a lovely tree that looks great in our living room. It's right at 6 ft and it opened up beautifully. Someone said it looked thin but I don't agree. It's a very nice tree and the price was superb.

Just received this beautiful tree and in perfect condition. It is full, well balanced, and it looks so real its hard to tell its not. This is a wonderful buy, and the tree looks far more expensive than it is. You'll LOVE this purchase. Also, the 4' Sweet Bay topiary is absolutely gorgeous, and I love both trees in my beautiful home.

Bought the first one for myself. The most real looking fake tree I have found. I shaped the tree easily by bending and twisting the branches and decorated it with white lights. It looks beautiful and adds a much needed touch of green in the living room. Mom loved it so much I purchased one for her too.
I had been concerned that a ficus called Silk Palace Tree might be too large and majestic for our 25' x 20' living room, but the positive reviews persuaded me. I'm very pleased with the size of it and the quality. It took no time to spread the branches to perfection.
