Tree skirt size for pencil tree 2018
If you are looking to find out what size tree skirt for pencil tree, read this post which will give you information on how to choose the right sized tree skirt for pencil trees. If you are in a hurry, this Christmas tree skirt will be ideal for an average sized pencil tree with a base width ranging from 20 inches to 30 inches (make sure to measure the base diameter of your tree).
A pencil tree (Christmas trees with slim pencil thin like structure) doesn’t have wide branches, so even though they can be tall or even very tall, they don’t cover a large area around them as the branches are not wide.
They are not exactly pencil thin though 🙂 but still compared to other usual sized Christmas trees, they are slim. Pencil trees can come in different heights, starting from short, medium tall trees to very tall trees, even 15 ft height pencil trees are not rare.
If you have very high ceilings, but small rooms if you take the overall area, then you can go for tall pencil trees which won’t take up much space across the room, and their base won’t take too much space in the floor as well and so they are perfect if you have limited floor space, perfect for corners and more easy to handle and set up etc.
The advantage of buying a pencil tree is that they won’t take up much space in the room (though they can be tall) since they are narrow and slim in structure and so the width will be relatively less.
Actually that’s the whole point about it (that the base of pencil trees are usually narrow and slim compared similar other kinds of tall trees which takes up more space in the room), and that’s what is relevant when you look for tree skirts for pencil trees.
An average sized Christmas tree is usually 6 foot or 6.5 foot and a 7 foot Christmas tree is pretty taller though you can find very tall trees like 9 foot, 12 foot, 15 foot etc. Whatever is the height of your pencil tree, you need to find out the exact width of their base to find out what size tree skirt for pencil tree will fit for yours.
For an average sized 6 foot or 7 foot pencil trees, I have found that the base width can vary from 20 inches to even 36 inches though 36 inches is pretty rare. Usually almost all average sized 6 foot or 7 foot pencil trees usually have a base width ranging from 20 inches to about 30 inches (though you need to measure yours to make sure) and many have 22″ base width on average. You should also look at how wide are the branches (they will be narrow compared to regular trees), as you want the tree skirt to be wider than the base as well as the branches.
So basically, the tree skirt size should be larger than the width of the base as well as larger than the width around the branches so it will look perfect and nice. The tree skirt is expected to cover the tree base, so make sure to measure the base diameter of your tree and then you have to buy a larger tree skirt that can cover the tree base.
So what size tree skirt for pencil tree?
For an average pencil tree with tree base diameter ranging from 20 inches to 30 inches, I would recommend using a 36 inch tree skirt which will cover the tree base perfectly. If your tree base is only 20 inches and you do not want a larger tree skirt, you may also go for 24 inch tree skirts. The tree skirt size for an average 6 foot tree will be probably larger than the tree skirt size required for an average 6 foot pencil tree. If you want to see what the tree skirt size for a regular 6 foot Christmas tree, read this post (they need larger tree skirts because the base is usually wider than the pencil trees, so pencil slim trees only require small tree skirts than the regular sized ones).
For even larger trees with larger base diameters, you will need to go for large sized tree skirts, so everything depends on what is the base diameter of your pencil tree.
Hope the information on this page on what size tree skirt for pencil tree is helpful in finding the right sized tree skirt for your slim pencil trees.
