The lower section of the tree is fairly sparse. I spent well over 2 hours working with the branches trying to fluff up to cover the interior pole. The upper section does not fit snugly into the pole and wobbles and does not stand straight. I also had a difficult time plugging in the correct set of lights into the correct cords...I thought the instructions for this should have been clearer and the illustration was terrible. I ended up using an extension cord because I couldn't get all the plugs to reach designated electrical cord. Over-all the tree looks acceptable and once I get all the decorations on it, I'm confident it will look good. On the plus side, it came really quickly and the top and middle sections of the tree have lots of nice brances and it looks filled in.
