I have only ever had real trees, and this tree has made it easy to switch over to artificial. To be honest, this is probably one of the best trees you can get in New Zealand and on top of that it is so much cheaper than a bunch of trees that still don’t look as good. It has a good percentage of PE branches (more realistic than the usual PVC), making it come to live and look rather realistic. A similar tree at farmers is 5 inches shorter, looks incredibly scruffy and fake as it has far less PE branches, yet it costs almost double the price of this one.
I do have a couple small critiques. 1. Some of the PE tips don’t have wire in them, so they aren’t really viable to hang ornaments off of. 2. Some of the lights were a bit tangled around the branches. 3. The lights don’t really have any settings, just on and off. TBH though, you could always buy the unlit option and get your own twinkle lights. That would work perfectly!
These are all super small criticisms though. Over all this is a fantastic buy. A realistic tree at a very low price. I would highly recommend. They should make more models! Go even taller! :)
