As you a long needle or a short needle tree person? As much as I love the swooping look of long needles trees, they can't hold up my ornaments, the heavy ones in particular fall off. That's why when buying a tree, I try to look for one with lots of thick, stumpy branches that can take a lot of weight. I don't want my inheritance of ornaments breaking on me! Especially high up branches where the kids and cat won't be tempting to knock off the ornaments.
