Points to keep in mind when

  • Some trees have sharp needles, this could be a factor if you have small children or pets.
  • measure the height of the container you are intending to use for the tree

  • You need to check your house and decide where you want the tree to stand
  • evaluate the height of your ceiling

  • Decide what decoration you want to use as a tree topper and measure its height.
  • Do some quick arithmetic. Your tree should be the height of your ceiling minus the height of your container, minus the tree topper ornament and minus about 6-10 inches so your tree does not brush against your ceiling.
  • Consider the girth of the tree and check how far the branches can reach sideways without utilizing all the space in your room. It is best to actually determine the space provided so you can be sure.
  • Make a note of how many sides of your tree will be on display (At times a tree is placed in a corner where only two sides are really exhibited. This will influence which tree you select.
  • check the weight of the ornaments you intend to use to decorate your tree. Take note of all these points.
