Add Weight

It's important to add weight inside the vessel to ensure the artificial tree does not tip over when in use. To do this, place a bag of sand, pebbles or freestanding bricks centered inside.

Place Tree in Vessel

Once the vessel is properly weighted down, place the Christmas tree base or stand inside carefully. Tip: It's best to keep the base or stand extra snug inside the vessel by keeping the base or stand up against the vessel's interior. This will help the tree stand upright.

Adjust Branches

With the tree securely fit inside the vessel, adjust and properly shape the branches.
