Rated 5 out of 5 by Frugalshopper1 What a great item
Received the tree after Thanksgiving. Make sure you do the following. Keep it in garage or a cool place and put it in a big basket for watering. Poured water over it for 3 days in a row and it soaked up most of it. Today is New Year's eve and it is still green. Have only had to water it once, but misted it occasionally. A terrific purchase, living up to the LL Bean promises. Have enjoyed it every day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pilotguy A Perfect Christmas
I ordered the Traditional Balsam Tabletop Tree for my elderly parents. It was shipped in two days and the tree was as full and fresh as it looked in the catalog. The red bow and ribbons added the perfect touch. Even after a few weeks, the tree looks as the day it was delivered. You can still get an occasional scent of balsam as you walk past it. My parents were thrilled and can't stop commenting on it. I know what to get them next Christmas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TableTree Sent too early
The tree is pretty and just right for the table. We sent it to someone who cannot put up a regular tree and it is just right. The only thing that was very disappointing was that we requested a Christmas delivery and it was received before Thanksgiving. It was a long time for the person receiving it to keep it moist and looking good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Matchmaker The tree is cute and makes me smile
I am very happy with my tree. It's cute and every time I look at it, it makes me smile. I did not have the time to clean out a corner of my apartment for a regular tree so this was quick and easy to order and makes my place a little Christmas-y. It came well-packaged and without any damage. I didn't realize that it wasn't an actual live tree (it's balsam branches stuck to a floral foam) but it might be better this way because no one will get a scrawny product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jacquesfun Very disappointing
This arrived in very poor condition. Receiver told me it was falling apart and he was unable to bring it into the house. He would have had to remake the entire tree to enjoy it. He is not the kind of person to do that. I wasted a lot of money with no pleasure to the receiver.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LoneTreeBill Excellent & easy way to add some Christmas spirit
Got one of these for my 96-year old mother, as well as one for our home. Mom is in an assisted living apartment. The tree fits perfectly on her living room coffee table in the center of the room. She says it provides a nice touch of Christmas cheer. Especially like the fact that it is no maintenance, plus no light cords to worry about.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Sara1 A disappointment
I was disappointed when the recipient e-mailed me a picture of the Balsam tabletop tree. It was smaller than expected though no measurements were mentioned and the ribbons flowing down from the bow were much shorter (mid-way) and did not have as many berries as show in the picture in the catalog. L.L. Bean did a fine job in handling my order and I was satisfied with their timely delivery.

Rated 5 out of 5 Wonderful!
The tree arrived yesterday. It was packaged well and very fast delivery. It was a bit smooshed, but if you FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS and do a little bit of fluffing, it will be perfect. The smooshing is a bit unavoidable, but is easily remedied. Smells wonderful, looks beautiful, the quality I would expect from LL Bean for sure.
