The tree is no as beautiful as the picture shows. I guess it depends on your kind of luck you have when you place your order. I did read the reviews before I made the purchase. Some say the tree is full and other say its skimpy. Unfortunately I belong to the unlucky group. The tree I received is scanty especially at the low part of the tree. Almost ½ height of the tree at the low part has no branch at all. I am disappointed but just dont bother to make the trouble to return it.
