New Style Christmas Tree StandIt eliminates having to trim off bottom branches and the bother of daily watering, says Harlan Halvorson of his new "Dial-It-Straight" tree stand. Once the tree is mounted on the four legs, you just turn the bottom of the water pan to straighten the tree the way you want it. The pan holds 3 gal. of water, enough to keep the tree supplied for several days.
The key to the stand is the spike, sticking out of the bottom of the pan, which is inserted into the tree trunk. When the moveable pan bottom is turned, it turns the tree with it to the desired position.
According to Halvorson, there's usually no need to trim off lower branches with his stand, thus preserving the tree's shape and appearance. The stand sells for $17.50. One size fits all.
