It also protects your tree from damage, dust, and moisture, and can easily be kept in your garage, basement, closet, attic, or wherever it fits your storage needs. Also available in green for $12 (was $15). Measurement: 65 x 15 x 30 inches.

This satisfied customer wrote, "I am using it for my 7.5 foot Christmas tree. I love the toughness of this product. It's definitely worth it."
