Been trying to get a tree since the end of November and I ordered from Balsam Hill UK and they were not good, Tree delivered was faulty, Ordered another and that came and was also faulty, Received full refund and was able to look at Hayes Garden World on line.
Because of the problems I have had since end of November and not being able to order a tree till the 18/12/15 this was when my full refund was issued
Phoned up Hayes Garden World and was advised if I ordered a tree that day it will be delivered on the 22/12/15. Was disappointed that the tree was delivered a day later than I was advised and I was not notified and waited in till 6 pm, Customer services have failed but nothing like the last company I had brought from
Brought National Tree 7ft Smokey Mountain Fir Slim Feel-Real (Poly) PE Instant Shape Artificial Christmas Tree.
It took less than 10 minutes to put up, Could not believe how easy it was to pull the sleeve off then pull the branches down one by one, Yes they do go in to shape, Did not want the pre lit tree as I like to chose my own style of lights, this year I went for 1000 red and white led, Am able to also hang heavy items on the branches as they are strong enough to allow the weight. The tree sure does look real and I am limited to space as my home is small, Shame that most of the trees are over 45 inches wide.
Also found on line the National Tree company 6 inch extension pole, It gives you that bit more space under the tree and allows you to rotate the tree round while putting the lights on even easier
I usually replace my tree about every 3 years as I get fed up with them and like something different but now I think I will just buy different decorations to dress the tree with rather than replacing this top of the range tree, This tree goes up so easy and quick no reason to want another tree
