When it arrived the box didn't look all that big (about 6 ft by 2 ft). So I tried to pick it up the handles and boy was it heavy. I couldn't lift it at all. I had to basically roll it into the house. I opened the box and found that it was in 4 parts. Let's just say that they were all heavy except for the top piece. I had to stand on the 4 foot ladder to put the top piece on.
I like that it is pre-lit with clear lights. I hate stringing lights. Maybe in my spare time this weekend (ha, ha) I can get those branches fluffed. I am already envisioning it decorated with green, red and white decorations.
