If you're considering taking home a tree that's already wrapped in netting or twine, take some time to have the attendant remove the wrappings so you can see the tree with all the branches hanging free. You may find that your favorite tree is lopsided, or has a bare spot on one side. These faults might not be grounds for disqualifying the tree outright. Consider the space where you’ll put your tree. If you can place the bad side of a tree against the wall or facing the corner, you might want to take it home. If the tree doesn't look perfect after the attendant has untied it consider: It can tree branches a day or two to settle back into place after being unwrapped.
