Amazing Seasons 6 Ft. Christmas Tree | Green Branches with Sturdy Metal Base | Unlit Artifical Pine, AU-IT6-600-GRN

The Amazing Seasons tree received high ratings from customers for its good looks, durability, and value. The free-standing tree is 6 feet tall and 45 inches wide, making it ideal for large living rooms or open spaces that need a visual boost. It’s made of plastic, but it feels sturdy, especially during blustery winds. Assembly is simple, and the included tree stand folds up for easy storage when not in use. The pine branches have been pre-trimmed, so even though the tree isartificial, it looks very natural. The branches fold together, so the tree takes up less space than a standard tree, and it’s ideal for small spaces. The tree is not pre-lighted, so it’s up to you to add lights or festoon it in garland. For easy light installation, we recommend attaching the strands to the branches with clips, which come attached to the tree. The metal base is very sturdy, and the plastic caps on the base protect your floor from scratches. The tree has a warm, pine scent, but it’s not overpowering, so it’s more pleasant than the smell of most artificial trees.

National Tree Company Pre-Lit Artificial Full Christmas Tree, Green, Dunhill Fir, White Lights, Includes Stand, 6.5 Feet

The Dunhill Fir Full Pre-Lit Artificial Green Christmas Tree was ordered as an addition to our 7-foot artificial tree from National Tree Company that we have been getting for 10 years. We like the Dunhill Fir better because the branches and tips are closer together, and the lights are strung on the branches before packing, making it much easier to set up the tree. The Dunhill tree is more easily shaped, too. The only downside is that the Dunhill Fir has wide clusters of stiff needles (for ease of shaping), while the National Tree pines have clusters of medium needles. The Dunhill Fir also loses more needles as it dries out, making it less practical for indoor use. The Dunhill Fir also costs about a third more than the

National Tree Company Dunhill Fir Artificial Tree, 9 Ft, Dual Colored Lights

The National Tree Dunhill Fir Artificial Christmas Tree is an attractive artificial tree that can stand up to abuse, so it’s a good choice for families with active kids or pets. It’s easy to assemble, and it comes pre-strung with 900 LED lights that take about 11 minutes to set up, and 10 different light settings, including a combination multicolor and solid white. The Dunhill Fir has 4,026 branch tips and a trunk diameter of 66 inches, which makes it a good option for rooms that don’t have a lot of space. It has a natural profile, with a medium fullness that makes for a fuller look. For its size, the Dunhill Fir is relatively lightweight, which helps it to stand up well, and it resists falling off its stand. The Dunhill Fir has a medium fullness that makes it a good choice for rooms that don’t have a lot of space, and the tree’s sturdy construction means it can withstand the energetic activity of younger players, and it tolerates dogs, cats, and other strong pets.

National Tree Company Pre-Lit Artificial Full Christmas Tree, Green, Dunhill Fir, Dual Color LED Lights, Includes PowerConnect and Stand, 7.5 Feet

Like our other picks, the National Tree Dunhill Fir Pre-Lit Artificial Full Christmas Tree is easy to set up, keep lit, and take down at the end of the season. But this tree has a nicer-looking base and illumination system. The National Tree Dunhill Fir Pre-Lit Artificial Full Christmas Tree also comes with more color-changing lights, and has an extra set of light functions (twinkling, flashing, and fading) that our previous pick lacks. The National Tree Dunhill Fir Pre-Lit Artificial Full Christmas Tree sets up easily and is sturdy enough to withstand a fair amount of seasonal shaking. It’s nice that it has a hinged stand that folds back on itself for quick storage, and unlike our previous pick, this one has a metal base. It’s also cheaper and shorter than our other picks (though the shorter version is available for the same price when purchased from the same online retailer). One important thing to note: This isn’t just any green tree. Dunhill Fir is a noble fir variety, with denser, green needles and branches that are less floppy than less-noble fir varieties, so it looks more lifelike.

National Tree Company Artificial Full Christmas Tree, Green, North Valley Spruce, Includes Stand, 7.5 Feet

The National Tree Company 7.5-foot North Valley Spruce Pre-Lit Artificial Green Christmas Tree 5615033G was easy to set up right out of the box, and it comes with a nice metal base. The branches were somewhat prickly, though, and we discovered a huge needle at the bottom of the tree. We remended that we put the tree on a stand and let it sit for about a week before putting it up. The color was accurate, and the tree has a nice full look, but it did look a little sparse out of the box, and the branches were a little prickly. If you do buy this tree, we recommend giving it a break for at least a week before putting it up.

You won’t believe your eyes the first time the Amazing Seasons assisted living center’s tree is lit. The branches are hand-cut and shaped to maximize the amount of light they emit and emit it they do! The branches are non-allergenic and non-flammable, and the pine needles are synthetic and fade-resistant so you won’t worry about allergies, too. The Amazing Seasons tree also comes in three sections (two branches and one metal base), so you can set it up wherever you want.

OasisCraft Pre-lit Christmas Tree 6.5ft Premium Hinged Blue Spruce Artificial Christmas Tree with 700 Clear Lights

This OasisCraft Pre-lit Christmas Tree is the prefect tree for the holidays. It has a great color scheme and exudes a nice warm glow. The branches are full and rich in appearance. It may not look as full as trees with 750 bulbs, but the 700 bulbs are still quite full. The Oasiscraft tree puts out a nice amount of light, and it’ll get you through the holiday season. The trunk has a slight curve that gives it a much nicer feel than trees with straight trunks, and the branches are full and lush. The OasisCraft tree looks great on a table top or mantle. However, its narrow width makes it better as a tabletop tree. If you’re looking for something wider than 50 inches, then the OasisCraft tree may not be for you. You’ll most likely want to go with a larger tree.

National Tree Company Carolina Pine 7.5 Foot Artificial Holiday Prelit Christmas Tree w/750 Clear Lights, Pinecones, 1399 Branch Tips and Metal Stand

The Carolina Pine Christmas Tree from National Tree Company was easy to set up, and it did look quite realistic. The branches were very full, and the hinged construction made it easier to dismantle and store. We liked that the branches were hinged, but we didn’t like that the tree was pre-lit rather than requiring us to string lights ourselves. Also, our tree looked a bit droopy, and trimming the top to shape it would have taken too much time. But overall, it was just what we look for in a Christmas tree: simple to set up, looks real, with realistic needles.

21″ Prelit Tabletop Christmas Tree, Snow-Flocked Artificial Christmas Tree with Pine Cones and Burlap Base, with Decoration Kit for Christmas Tabletop Decoration

We like that you can choose the height and style of the base and stand for your tree, and that you can choose between a pre-lit tree with incandescent lights (with 3 AA batteries) or an unlit tree with (15) incandescent warm white halogen lights. We didn’t like the pre-lit tree’s branches, which had less fullness than we’d like. The unit was easy to assemble, but the extra lights took a bit of work to get set up. We also wished that the branches on the pre-lit tree had more fullness. The trees also tended to shake a little bit, and we wound up putting some felt pads on the bottom

I never intended to run a Catholic antiquities and book business. Not in a million years. As a cradle Catholic, I grew up in a house that was filled with Catholic images and sacramentals not to mention an abundance of excellent books provided by family members who worked in publishing houses famous for their Catholic catalogues. The beautiful images and concepts presented in those books certainly had their effect in enhancing my identity as a Catholic. As the years passed, even in the midst of very un-Catholic settings, I became a repository for my friends’ Catholic “found objects.” Eventually, I had a family of my own. We’re a small family. There are just three of us. And two of us were born with the “junk collecting gene.” Garage sales attracted us like a magnet.
