“I loved everything about this tree,” says an Amazon reviewer. “I bought the 7 foot and you would never be able to tell it is a half of a tree, it looks so full and I actually tell folks it is a half of a tree [because] they cannot tell. I have it anchored to [the] wall with a little screw and wire in one spot near the middle for additional support. This is a great tree I love it, and my dad does as well. Perfect for a smaller room or space.”
