Artificial Christmas trees should be carefully chosen as they last for 15 years or more. The height of the roof of the room and its floor area where the tree is to be placed should be kept in mind to determine the height of the tree and the width of the Christmas tree to be bought. The height should be so calculated to allow room for the tree topper. The width of the trees can be slender, slim or regular depending on the space available in the room. There are two ways of attaching the tree branches to its trunk -
1. To hook the branches in the brackets provided for
the purpose, which is cheaper but takes more time, and
2. The hinged branches tree that open up like an umbrella, which is
more expensive but is much quicker and easy.
You may choose the construction you want depending on
your budget. However, hinged trees can be stored as it is with lights
and decorations to be used year after year, while the tree with hooked
branches would have to be rearranged every year.
tree stands are safer and best to support your tree as they don't easily
tip over and can bear the weight of the heavy tree with all the lights
and ornaments. The length and softness of the tree needles differ, Cheap
Christmas trees have branches with square ends while rounded or
sculptured branch tip may cost a little more but look more natural and
nicer. Wire in the branches must be strong enough to hold the heavy
ornaments that you may use while decorating your tree. After the
holidays, store your tree in a dust and insect proof storage or
Christmas tree bag, so that the tree looks as good as new every year.
You may also save some money by buying a shorter Christmas tree and
adding to its height by putting it on a foot-high strong wood box that
can be hidden by the Christmas tree skirt. It will also increase the
stability of the Christmas tree.
