from This is my second National Tree Company tree and I have to say their quality has decreased. This is my second National Tree Company tree and I have to say their quality has decreased. There are a lot of large gaps that can’t be fixed no matter what you do. The light strands on my previous tree went all the way to the back of the branch and then up the next, on this tree they take it half way back and string it across which limits movement of the branches. Also when the lights were “strung” they did it while the branches were closed so I couldn’t spread them. While none of these issues are tragic by any means when you spend upwards of $600 on a fake tree you expect a little more than this.
