I had the same problem - and it's a shame as the tree looks great - IF you can line the top up with the trunk.

 

The only way I could do it with any degree of sucess is to only place a tree in a spawn point, that way at least you know it is lined up vertically.  The problem with that is it drastically limits you to where you can place these trees.

 

It's a great concept, but poorly thought out regarding how to put them together.

 

 

There is a spawn point at the Gothic Cathedral space that looks great with the cherry tree:

Unfortunately though is is an exception, and not the rule. Smiley Frustrated

Well, darn! I really wanted to get these, too. It's a shame. Btw, what about the height? Does it fit in most spaces?

The above comment is my opinion, unless I state a fact. You can disagree with my opinion, but facts are facts.

It's ashame as they seem like a nice item. I had forgotten about these until now but I guess I'm happy with my old animated cherry blossom tree, at least they fit in any space with no assembly required xD

It comes with two dif base trunks and two dif tops.  The base that has the mid trunk built-in wont fit most spaces with either top on it, but I suspect if you only use the short base and the smaller top, it will fit most spaces... But the problem is you can't see what you are doing when you try and place either of the tops.  In one space I kept knocking over items as well as the trunk.  I finally just gave up.

 

As Vicky said, the Animated Cherry Blossom Tree is a much better choice, as it not only comes as just one item, only uses 1 slot, while still tall, it is short enough to fit just about every space I have.  Not only that but IMO it looks much nicer, and is animated at that!

 

I was really hoping this tree bundle was going to be a big win, but I wish I could return it. Smiley Sad

The Palm Trees are also very large and somewhat hard to put together. You need a space with room to see what you're doing when setting them up.

:^/ I'm sure these were meant for larger outdoor spaces, such as the midnight glade or sunlit meadow.

Any way, unfortunately most of the outdoor spaces have the same low ceiling as many indoor spaces - it's just that you can't see it.  For instance, the ceiling of the Sunlit Meadow is well below the top of the trees.

:^/ True. We need more spaces with high ceilings. Especially for the Essence of the Seven Winds active item existing now. That thing just screams for higher ceilings. The Batcave and Dragon's Lair spaces have suitable ceilings, but how many cherry trees would we expect there?

Ok then, darn it anyways.

I just purchased this item and wish I had checked out the forums before doing so, maybe I could have saved myself some money. Smiley Sad
