Top 6 Christmas Tree Stands

Like if this guide is helpful
Every Christmas tree, live or artificial, needs a high-quality stand to hold it up for the entire Christmas season. The stand needs to support the weight of the tree with all its decorations. In the case of live trees, it needs to hold water to keep the tree fresh; no matter the type of tree, the tree stand should be reliable and unobtrusively. The best Christmas tree stands have additional features like portability for easy storage, or special mechanisms for easy setup. Christmas tree stands are available at tree farms, department stores, and online at eBay. Learning about the top models gives consumers a better idea of what to shop for.
1 Emerald Innovations Swivel Straight Tree Stand XTS3

Emerald Innovations specializes in revolutionary products to make life easier, and the Swivel Straight Tree Stand is a perfect example. The two-part stand has a large green plastic base and a smaller insert that clamps onto the tree trunk. The insert then sits in the base. Users can simply straighten the tree by swiveling it in the base to find the right position for it. The stand permits live trees with trunks of up to 5 inches in diameter, and up to 10 feet tall. A foot pedal raises and lowers the height of the stand and a 3.5-quart reservoir holds water to keep the tree fresh. Additional water bottles, which keep the reservoir topped up for longer, are also available for purchase.



2 Good Tidings CNCC152

The Good Tidings stand by Cinco is great for small trees. The base is low and wide and made of 3.25 lbs of heavy-duty plastic. The stand accommodates trees of up to 8 feet in height and with a trunk diameter of 6 inches. One of the best features of this stand is the spill-guard, which catches water in case it spills over from the reservoir, which holds 0.75 gallons. Steel spikes in the center of the base help hold the tree firmly and three bolts make setup simple.



3 8 Express Tree Stand

Cinco's line of Express tree stands has a patented Express Bolt system that makes it easier to set up the tree than traditional bolts. One usually has to screw in each bolt and adjust each one until the tree is straight; however, with Express Bolts, one simply pushes the bolt into the correct position and a patented ratcheting action locks the bolt in place. To release the bolt, there is a small lever that one holds down while pulling out the bolt. This stand is suitable for small to medium trees with trunks up to 6 inches in diameter, and it has a 1.3-gallon reservoir with spill-guard.

5 Snow Joe H092

The Snow Joe H092 is a rotating tree stand, perfect for showcasing a fully bedecked artificial tree. The stand rotates the tree slowly so all the ornaments have a chance to shine, and there are even three sockets on the bottom of the stand for lights. The lights and the rotation have separate switches so they work independently. The stand holds artificial trees that weight up to 150 lbs, with a height of 8.5 feet. The power provided through the outlets is enough for 2400 miniature lights; however, users should only connect three sets of lights in series with any outlet.



6 Green Folding Christmas Tree Stand FTS-24

The FTS-24 is a practical stand for anyone who has very minimal storage space. It holds any artificial Christmas tree up to 8 feet in height with a pole diameter of 1.25 inches or less. The FTS-24 makes a great high-quality replacement for the flimsy plastic stands that usually come with artificial trees. It measures 2 feet across and holds the pole of the tree with three metal screws. Rubber stoppers on the feet protect the floor and keep the stand firmly planted on the ground. Best of all, it folds flat for easy storage.
