We bought our 9 ft tree 2 years ago and it still assembles easy and looks great! Yes, it's not one of the best built trees on the market, but after 2 seasons (going on three) everything still works and we get so many compliments on how it looks! It's very easy to set up and looks great even without the ornaments! It's by far one of the best looking trees we've owned.

If you come across an artificial Christmas tree online that seems too good to be true, it probably is. Lesson learned. I loved the "woodsy" look of this tree. This is our first time going with an artificial tree, and I wanted to avoid that "perfect triangle" that you often get with fake trees. This one looks so great online, but unfortunately the real tree is a huge disappointment.
It is easy to assemble, and the lights are nice - very sparkly and evenly spaced. But even after spending an hour fluffing out the branches, I couldn't get it to look anything like the one in the picture. The bottom is okay, but the top is very thin and skimpy even after spreading out the branches, fluffing, etc. The tree's needles don't look even remotely real -- they just look like shredded plastic. I bought the 6.5 ft version, and it seemed so tiny once assembled. And because of the not-very-full tree, there was hardly going to be any place to put ornaments.
I've already bought another tree (locally, as now I see the advantage to seeing it in person before buying -- even if the reviews are good online, they aren't always reliable). If it's too cost prohibitive to send back, I'll probably put it in our basement family room and have that be the tree for the kids' handmade ornaments and all that. But never could I recommend this as a Christmas tree to anyone who wants a nice tree.

I knew to expect this tree to be slim both from its name and all the reviews, however, I only regret it not being as evenly balanced as the pictured tree. My tree is is full on the botton and very narrow up top. The one pictured is evenly proportioned. I love its sparse look though! It took me almost an hour to spread out and flatten all the branches starting from the bottom center out and up. I am ocd and took as long as needed. I also love the bark and the realness of it. It is overall surprisingly very much real looking. I never would have guessed from the pictures.
I was so excited about this purchase. The day it arrived I opened the box, spent 15 minutes putting it together spreading all the branches nicely and when I went to attached the power cord, I found the main extention to have been crushed. I immediately called Hayneedle to see it we could do a swap. Where it's Christmas I wanted the item as soon as possible. They replied not, I would have to pay for another now and wait to have my other tree returned before a credit would be issed. Another thing that is just not a good idea at Christmas. There was not mention of expedited shipping...basically nothing they could do. I did however find the return process easy.
The box was open on one end and had big gaping holes in the sides. The tree top was bent to an L shape so it would not stand up in the truck, it made the tree L shape. There were no instructions and the truck had cracks in it. There is no way to know if this happend during shipment or if it was damaged to begin with but the customer service gets 5 stars for taking care of the damaged goods and credited my account.
I purchased the 9' variation of this tree. The picture is probably the 7'. I purchased a new home with 10' ceilings but I have a narrow area where I wanted to place my tree so I was looking for a 9' slim.
The tree is definitley slim. For the most part it was easy to assemble, but it did take some effort to get the sections pushed all the way down onto the base/next section.
I like the wood look of the trunk, however the base of the trunk is cut at an angle so the tree is on the stand crooked.
The top section is quite flimsy and I'm having a hard time getting it secured far enough into the section below so that the top isn't crooked as well.
It's a pre-lit tree, but the top section is wired together with the middle section and the plugs are too far down the tree to connect my star with out having to run an extention cord. The cord on my star is almost 3 feet long and it's still not enough.
I'm still working on trying to fluff out the branches...I know in packing/shipping everything gets smushed, but I've had it up for 3 days and I'm still having a hard time with it. It almost seems like the bottom section and top sections were made with out consideration of each other. They don't exactly match.
I went ahead and put decorations on the tree to see if that helps...and it does minimize the fact that the bottom doesn't look anything like the top, but if I cannot get the tree situated so it's not crooked then I will be returning it.
The tree looks nice for an artificial, easy to assemble. However we just set it up for our second season with it, and half the lights have burnt out......I'm disappointed it didn't hold up better.
