by RenieAL Pleased with everything except the lights
This is a beautiful tree and such a versatile size....you can literally use it anywhere. Looks great even without a lot of fluffing.
The one issue I have with it is the lights. This is just the 2nd Christmas season I've had the tree and when I put it together, one whole section of lights didn't work. I replaced the fuses as per instructions. That didn't fix it. I went through every single individual bulb in the unlit section, testing with a good bulb, and couldn't find one that would light. So, I guess the whole strand went bad. Really disappointed because the lights only last 1 year! A few days later, I noticed another section wasn't lit. And last night it was down to only the top section of lights that are working!!!!
I give this tree 5 starts for looks and ease to put together, but only 1 star for the lights. That's why I gave it a 3 overall.
I think I'm done with prelit trees. I've been burned too many times. But I've never had one go out after just 1 season like this one did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OneHappyGal Looks so real you expect it to drop needles, but it doesn't
I just received this amazing artificial, pre-lit tree and it is wonderful.
I put it on a 24" round table that's 26" high with a red cloth to the floor, topped with a 3'x3' white lace cloth. I wrapped the stand with a hunter green cloth. The tree is decorated with a 40' gold tinsel strand & 24 shatter-proof, shiny 2" balls in red, silver & green. Added a few heirloom ornaments and a shear gold bow with red central stripe at the top.
With the tree on a table, the lowest branches are waist high. So easy to decorate -- no standing on your head to get to the bottom of the tree. Now to get a balsam wreath indoors to give the evergreen fragrance...
The only change I'd really, really, really like would be multi-colored lights.

I was genuinely pleased with this tree since the first day it was delivered and unpacked. It fitted perfectly in the space beneath a spiral staircase in a small house. I was happy that the tree is about eighty percent realistic polyethylene greenery. I have had so much fun decorating it. It looks great with fewer ornaments, but looks stunning when absolutely loaded! Here is a photo of my tree with a red/gold theme....enjoy!

This little Christmas tree far exceeded my expectations. It's lush and looks very real. Only took a few minutes to assemble. I placed it in a large ceramic pot we use in the summer and displayed it on our covered front porch, decorated with white lights and a big bow on top, but I can easily see using it indoors to decorate a smaller space, as well. It looked gorgeous along with our wreaths and other décor. Wonderful quality and great value. Arrived right on time! Very pleased. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lookup Exactly what I wanted
Was looking for a small artificial tree at the usual stores, and was getting a bit frustrated with how "artificial" they all actually looked! Not to mention the high price tag. Decided to try online and of course my first stop is Ballarddesigns! Found this 4' gem of a tree, (with great reviews,) on sale. It arrived to a happy customer. The color and the quality make this tree look real. It's small, but I propped it up on a stool covered with my Ballard burlap tree skirt. Darling!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sewsimple Very nice
I was a little disappointed when I opened the box and saw the tree was made from a material that resembles a rubber scrubbrush. After the tree is set-up, lit with the bright clear lights and decorated,however, it truly looks festive and real! It was perfect on a 30" table in my holiday entrance.

I've always been a diehard tree hugger with fresh cut or living Christmas trees every year. No more, I'm a total convert with this little artificial tree.

I love this tree. I was looking to downsize from a 7ft tree to something smaller and had looked at several trees in the stores but they all looked so fake. The appearance of this tree is so real looking, it was easy to put together, came in two pieces. Lights are nicely spaced. It was so easy to decorate because of the size. So happy with it.

Tree is pretty, lights all worked ( was nervous, the plug in was bent badly). Just seems so small for 4 foot.

Having downsized to a 4-foot faux tree, I was delighted. This one sparkled in my living room and showed off the ornaments. I have never been disappointed with Ballards products and this was no exception.
Thank you Ballards.

by amyinoaktown Great little tree!
Love this tree...perfect size for my 850 sqft condo. Has plenty of lights and was very easy to put together. Full but able to put a lot of ornaments on it. Would definitely recommend this for anyone who wants a smaller tree (I don't have storage for anything bigger), but still has a lot of presence. I put this on a small round table to give it more height in corner of my room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SmokyMtns Perfect Table-Top Tree
For those looking for a realistic, nicely-shaped tree for a table top, this one fills the bill. Mine is on a small table between two chairs in the library. The tree's size is just right and its shape is a perfect pyramid. The exterior branches look like a live tree's. There are the typical bottle-brush branches filling the interior next to the trunk. The Ballard Designs description states the tree comes in one piece. Mine did not. There was the stand and two sections, not one, making up the tree. Set-up was quick and easy. Decorated, it looks magnificent when lit and unlit. I'm pleased and plan to order a second one for another room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by joac I paid the right price
This is a beautiful little tree it's true. It is easy to put up, well lit and looks lovely as a tree top table sans ornaments. The small pine cones add a lovely natural detail to the look.
I paid the sale price for it .. special sale price.However the full price is FAR too steep for this item. The sale price should be the regular price. With that.. no complaints only compliments on a beautiful tree.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MissC nicely shaped, easy to set up, looks very natural
This is my first artificial tree, so I decided to try a small one, and it's really sweet. I am most appreciative of the "pre-lighted" feature. The shape is quite nice, and the branches can be easily arranged to your artistic preference.

We purchased this tree last year and we are so pleased with the quality and how realistic it looks. Assembly was very easy - had it up in 5 minutes and then spent some time fanning out the branches to fill in the gaps. It's perfect! The pine cones are a nice touch and the tree is well lit. Everyone who sees it comments on it. After Christmas I stored it in the basement, completely in tact with a sheet over it. This year I simply took off the sheet and the tree was ready to go! My parents did not want to drag out their 7-ft tree this year so I ordered one for them, too! It's a great option for them.

I purchased this item with garland as well to be used outside of my home along with both the standing and the sitting Montresor deer. The tree is just the right size for inside and out. I added an antique sled to the scene, red and green ribbon to all and have quite the pretty picture. Now all we need is snow...

I bought this and put it on my baby grand piano - it looks great, and it is very "real" looking - not plastic like some of them. I give it an A+++!

My husband and I just put the tree up last night-- it was a quick set-up and we had the whole thing decorated in about an hour (took 4-5 hours to set-up and decorate our 9Ft. tree-- we no longer wanted to waste time and energy messing with the taller tree. This 4Ft tree is loaded with branches that look like the real deal, it has a beautiful green/blue color-- we love it and wish we had bought this size 10 years ago!

Rated 2 out of 5 by onlineshopper50 Attractive, but some lights do not work.
This tree is very easy to assemble and good looking, and fits well in a small space like a condo, but the lights in the middle of the tree do not work. I followed the troubleshooting suggestions for the lights, with no success. This is my only complaint. Buyer beware.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dude9 Great looking tree. Right size for our needs.
We had a 7' tree which was too large for us to handle and store. We are both 76 yrs old. Decided on a 4' tree for ease of handling and storing. This is a wonderful looking tree - more realistic than our previous tree. We look forward to displaying it this Christmas. I also bought the tree bucket which makes it look even more beautiful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ChristmasinFlorida Perfect size!
I purchased this tabletop tree last year and love that it is so natural looking! It is very realistic and the pine cones are a nice touch if you are going for a natural decor. It was easy to assemble and I love that the branches are hinged for easy setup. I also liked the way the tree looked in the picture, so I purchased the burlap bow with red edges and tied it at the top. I used a simple strand of jeweled garland and purchased a few yards of faux crushed velvet fabric to drape around the base. I paired this tree with Ballard's Vancouver wreath which looks great for the holidays! I have been extremely happy with this tree and highly recommend buying!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Perfection This product is the perfect size for limited space
I was a little disappointed in the density of the branches, however, when it was decorated with my special ornaments is was beautiful. The size was perfect. I used a round table by a window. It was easy to assemble and will be easy to store for the next Christmas season. So unlike our old 6 ft tree.

This small spruce surpassed anything I've seen at a comparable price. Good natural color and cones, very realistic branches and needles. I hope Ballard continues to feature these trees. I placed it on my fireplace hearth and it filled that space very nicely.

We bought this tree for our family room where space is tight. We were pleasantly surprised how realistic it looks. The tree is well made, high quality and a nice size. The lights are evenly distributed. All attributes make it beautiful in any setting.
