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!
