Christmas Tree Stands

Aug 20, 2008
Stands for Artificial Trees:

After spending hundreds of dollars on your Artificial Prelit Christmas Tree or Artificial non-lit Christmas Tree, you want to have a stand that will display your new tree well. Of course there are several different types of stands to choose from. There are stands that hold a two foot tree and on up to those that hold a nine foot tree. From simple stands to heavy duty stands to even revolving tree stands. Most stands for artificial trees have a one and a quarter inch diameter slot, as this is the standard size of the main tree pole or trunk. One of the basic Tree Stands for Artificial Christmas Trees is simple to use and to store, but these types should be setup on a cloth or carpet as they can scratch your floors. These type of stands usually are very simple, when folded they resemble a triangle and when unfolded they make a nice X, which sort of marks the spot for your Christmas tree.

Tree Stands with Rollers:

Of course there are also stands with rollers on them such as the Artificial Christmas Tree Stand which have wheel locks so the stand stays where you want it to stay. These types of stands usually require no assembly as they are shipped completely intact. The wheels are nice as they allow you to place the tree in the stand and then easily rolling it to the place where you want the tree to stand. These stands also are of a heavier construction than the folding stands, so they usually last even longer. But they also hide well under a tree skirt and still give plenty of room to place the presents under the tree.

Rotating Tree Stands:

The Rotating Christmas Tree Stands are a wonderful edition to artificial tree stands as they allow you to plug your tree lights into the stand and then let it slowly turn all the way around to show off your whole Christmas tree. Some assembly is required for this stand but it mainly consists of putting the legs or feet on the base. Small rotating stands can usually only hold about a 75 pound tree or less, anything more would burn the motor out very fast and they handle about 900 lights. For heavier trees there is the EZ Revolving Christmas Tree Stand which can handle up to 2000 tree lights and up to 150 pound artificial tree. The EZ stand is shipped intact and ready to use, it has a smooth durable mound type construction which also makes it easy to cover with a Christmas Tree Skirt. With your artificial tree and this stand you are sure to delight your children for many years to come, as well as impress the neighbors. Just remember, with this stand its E Z.

Stands for Live Trees:

Now we come to live trees, these most often require a Heavy Duty Live Tree Stand. This stand can handle a tree with a trunk up to 6 inches in diameter and up to a 10 foot tall tree. Because of its semi mound shape it can easily be hidden under a Christmas Tree Skirt. It has a good size reservoir for water to help keep your tree fresh, but rather than crawling under your tree to check or add water just use the Live Christmas Tree Watering System to save your back.
