I was so pleased that I actually purchased a second one! Upon it's quick arrival, I simply tear the box open from top to bottom to prevent any leaves from falling off, lift the tree to it's standing position, make a few adjustments if needed and..........finished! This tree is completely full from top to bottom and receives compliments galore!!! Now, I may have to purchase a 3rd because my oldest son loves it and wants one for his place too! Overstock got this one right ! Price and all.
