Setting up your artificial pre-lit Christmas tree doesn't have to be a daunting task. You will typically find two standard ways to assemble a pre-lit tree at Christmas.
On older pre-lit trees, you may have to insert each branch into a hole on the metal pole that acts as the trunk of the tree. Typically you will find each branch marked with a certain color that is matched to the same color on the tree trunk. Once you have inserted all of the branches to the correct colored matches, you should fluff up the branches and you are done setting up your tree.
Newer models are even easier to set up. Generally, the branches are already fused onto the branch poles. All you have to do is put three different pole pieces together to make the trunk and then lift up the branches. This type of tree sets up in minutes.
