Pre-lit artificial Christmas trees offer many advantages over real trees. Pre-lit trees are easy to set up, cost about the same as real trees and do not require the user to add lights. After Christmas, you can disassemble the tree and store it for next year. Before you put the ornaments on the tree, make sure that the tree is properly assembled and that the base is secure to prevent the tree from tipping.
Open the tree stand so that it is flat and in the shape of an "X."
Insert the bottom section of the tree, the widest piece, into the center of the base.
Tighten the bolts on the stand so that the bottom section of the tree is standing upright and level.
Insert the pole on the bottom of the middle section of the tree into the opening in the middle of the bottom section. Align the metal notch on the bottom of the middle section with the hole in the bottom section pole to securely connect the two sections.
Connect the power cords attached to the bottom and middle sections to the light power cable, often connected to either the bottom or middle section. Run the other end of the light power cable to the wall outlet, but do not plug it in.
Insert the pole on the bottom of the top section of the tree into the opening in the middle of the middle section, again aligning the metal notch with the hole in the pole.
Connect the power cord from the top section of the tree to the light power cable.
Gently push down on all the branches, ensuring that they are fully extended. The branches connect to the tree with metal hinges designed to move up and down for storage.
Plug the light power cable into the wall outlet to complete the assembly. Hang ornaments and other decorations as desired.
