    it doesn't look like that tree could ever fit in that box. I'm surprised it was fully in there at one point in time.

    it was all finely packed before. each branch was perfectly straight and packed together.

    i'm glad you agree. i showed jcal and he was all like it came in there it should fit u just aren't' doing it right.

    It doesn't look like you tried to squish up the branches at all. Do that and I bet it'll fit better.

    i spent at least 40 minutes squishing them.

    Well then you just need a new box.

    if only it were that easy.

    then i went and bought rope.

    well that rope even with a triple knot can just be pulled apart. it wasnt' a fun time, especially when my dad was trying to hold it by the strings to put it in the attic.

    My parents took down there tree today, I helped take the ornaments off and every time I touched a branch then needles litterally rained down. Dad was talking the tree out so carefully so there weren't that many dropping, then hit a chair on the way out and there was a huge pile of needles left behind. besides the mess it was a lot of fun to shake off needles
