|How is a typical Christmas tree assembled / what is required?|
|Everything you need for assembly is included with your order. Sections are labeled alphabetically (more sections depending on the size of your tree). Section A is the top of the tree. To begin, unfold the stand into an “X” shape. Then build the tree from bottom to top by attaching the trunk poles. As you build the tree, connect the extension cords, which are color coded with stickers on most trees. Once everything is assembled, remember to pull down the branches (they are hinged) and arrange them to your liking. Pull the bottom branches down to reach the ground to hide the stand.
Note that these instructions apply to the typical Christmas tree that is 4.5 feet and higher. Pencil trees and special instant shape trees have a slightly different, but equally simple, assembly process.
|How long will it take to set up the tree?|
|Setting up your tree shouldn’t take longer than 30 minutes or so. We’ve heard from some of our customers that they like to spend more time making all the branches perfectly placed, but most of our customers are happy with their tree in less than a half an hour.|
|How many years can I use the tree for?|
|If your tree is stored properly, there is no reason you can’t use it forever. Use your replacement bulbs to replenish fading lights. Our non-clearance trees are covered under a 1-year Christmas Tree Market™ Warranty or a 10-year Vickerman Warranty. To view Christmas Tree Market™ warranty information, click here.
