First time I have ever disliked an Overstock product. The tree I received is not symmetrical and full, as it appears in photo. Although fairly inexpensive, I do not believe it is even worth the $25.00 I paid for it! I am still trying to sort out some very short branches so it will appear acceptable. Unfortunately, I may never use. Totally height from stand base (which cracked already) to top - just about reaches 36 " (yardstick used).
