• To ensure your purchased tree looks its best when you receive it, be sure to fluff up the branches. The branches are usually packed tightly when inside the box and require some fluffing for a fuller look. From the centre, open up the branches outwards so all the leaves are fanned out. Be sure not to miss any sections of the branches. When a tree is properly fluffed, it has a full look and the centre of the tree should not be highly visible.
  • If you want lights on your tree, you can purchase one of our beautiful pre-lit trees or you can add some string lights. When adding string lights, the guide to how many lights depends on personal preference of how bright you want your tree. However, as a general guide you can use 100 lights for a 4 ft tree, 200 lights 5ft tree, 300 lights 6ft tree, 500 lights 7ft tree and 600 lights 8ft tree.  To install the lights, make sure they are not plugged in. Then, start at the bottom and circle the tree in a diagonal fashion to the top. If using more than one set of lights, continue in the same way with the second set of lights. Once to the top, if some is leftover, reverse and go in a downwards direction.
  • The tree topper is undoubtedly the focal point of the tree. However, if not mounted properly, it has the tendency to flop down. To mount a tree topper, attach a thick splint to the centre of the tree at the top using  some wire or string. The tree topper can then be mounted on top of the splint.
