When we got the tree home from Greenbluff, it was so large that the tree stand could not support its own weight. As soon as we let go, the tree literally toppled over in the middle of our living room. In the end, we had to buy a totally new stand. Once we did, we were able to balance the tree, but again, it was so large that it took up at least a fourth of our living room.
Something about having an oversize tree made my kids happy. It's like a reflection of their giant love for Christmas.
