I purchased this six foot fiberoptic Chrsitmas tree from Dollar General. It has two hundered and thirty light points. It continually flash's. It is a really good value for the price. It has a gold base. It is a plug in. I really enjoyed it. It does not take up much space. I did decorate it. It has been durable. I have already had it for three years. It was easy to shape and had a really nice form. It is a green tree. I had two smaller ones that I liked. That was my motivation in purchasing this one! It is a soft beautiful decorating touch for Christmas! I have a glass table that I set it on. The plus here is no constant bulb replacement or easy to break bulbs. I am very pleased with this tree, and will continue to use it. It was on a special value when I bought it. It looked really nice when the skirt and decorations were on it. I did receive alot of compliments on this tree. I have had no complaints or problems with this tree. The tree was made in China. It came in a red and white box with a large red bow on it! I have already gotten my money's worth out of it. I think it will last a long time. It easy to shape and to dust off. It stores easily and always makes a grand appearance !
