Christmas Tree Stand Buyers Guide
One of the most important parts of the Christmas Tree is the tree stand. Without the stand the tree could lean, be lopsided or even fall over. When we purchase a Christmas Tree from a lot, some provide stands and others don’t. Since you are paying good money for the experience of a real Christmas Tree why not get a strong and durable stand that will keep your tree upright for as long as you have the tree up. There are stands for trees as small as 3 foot to trees as tall as 8 feet tall.
Without a good durable stand, the tree will not look right. If you have pets or small kids a simple bump into the tree could cause a Christmas Tree to fall right over or become out of line. When we put up our Christmas Trees we want perfection. We want all of our lights in place and all of our ornaments to look as beautiful as they can. Something as simple as the wrong tree stand could upset your whole Christmas experience. Let’s take a look at three great Christmas Tree Stands one is the Home Logic 7-1/2′ Artificial Christmas Tree Stand the second is from an 8′ Steel Christmas Tree Stand from Lowe’s and the third one is E.Z Rotating Christmas Tree Stand from Walmart.
