The subject of artificial Christmas tree stands probably never crossed your mind if you are
reading this...that is until the stand anchoring your $1200 masterpiece broke...or perhaps
you wanted a more sturdy one for peace of mind.
Or maybe none of the above.
Whatever the reason, the issue is: with all the many artificial Christmas tree stands available, where do you find a good one?
Basically all artificial Christmas trees come with stands, yet manufacturers are producing a
lot of after-market stands that are selling well. You can see them advertised on Amazon or
specific Christmas goods sites.
The better artificial Christmas tree stands are more solidly built, i.e. out of metal, and span at least 25 to 30 inches to provide extra stability so the tree doesn't tip over. How many of us have learned this lesson the hard way!
And a set of supports under the stand always helps, especially if you want to avoid scratching your floor or carpet.
Innovative tree stands do something other than just provide a home for the tree. Two great examples include ones that rotate the tree and others that do the same with Christmas music
Some stands even come with wheels so you can whisk the tree away for storage after the
holidays (ramp for stairs not included) or move it around if you want it to have a new
One caveat if you're purchasing a new tree stand: make sure you measure the diameter of the artificial tree trunk before buying. Most vary between 1 and 2 inches. Be sure that your new
stand will handle the appropriate width.
Listed below are three good choices for static (i.e. non-revolving) artificial tree stands.

Hopefully, these suggestions for artificial Christmas tree stands will help you get started.
And for those of you replacing a stand that broke leaving your tree hopeless and horizontal,
you have my sympathies. And, I'm sure, the sympathies of many of us out there who have
suffered the same fate!
