I like to decorate my house for Christmas, but I don't have the patience for it. I am not one to cherish taking out all the lights and ornaments, dusting them all, remembering all the fun times of years past, etc. I still have nightmares of my father making me test every single mini bulb in a light series to locate the faulty one. So, this tree is perfect for me. It comes with the lights set and some of the ornaments. So you take it out of the box, spread the branches out, hang some more extra ornaments and done. It took me an hour! And it does look nice. It is a good height, full, nice tree. The down side. The berries and pine cones on the tree will not last. This time around we lost close to 20 red berries. I am sure in three years the tree will be barren of berries and most pine cones. Also, it is a cheap tree and you get what you pay for. The threads that hold the needles and the branches together were untied in most of the branches, especially the bottom ones. I used duck tape to fix them but this will not last. I give it 4 years at most... You decide if it is worth it for you.
