Any size, any tree

The most highly rated tree stand by a large margin is this number by Krinner. It's a German company that makes easy to use and incredibly sturdy tree stands. This particular option comes in four different sizes, so no matter what size of tree you buy, you can find the stand to match. The best part is that there are no screws and no assembly: all you have to do is move a foot pedal. It's SO easy and keeps your tree firmly in place.

Take it deluxe

If that's not enough for you, Krinner offers a deluxe version of their tree stand that has all the same features as the classic but also has a water level indicator so that you never have to guess whether the tree needs water. It also holds a full gallon of water, so you're not constantly trying to remember to water the tree. Definitely some nice bonuses.

The traditional style

If you're like me, you grew up screwing the stand to your tree and that's how you like it. This Goliath welded steel stand is for us old-timers. It can handle trees from 8 ft to 16 ft, which is a significant range, and it's so heavy duty. Nothing will knock this guy over. It also holds a full 1.8 gallons of water, which would be enough for me to get through the entire Christmas season. Nice.

Petite and powerful

Of course if the big Goliath option seems a little bit like overkill to you, they do have a second option that keeps their quality product but makes it a little more appropriate for the living room. This smaller tree stand is for artificial trees between 4 ft and 8 ft. It's surprisingly lightweight, but will support up to 200 lbs (that is wild to me). It's got you covered.

For the artificial tree

Some of you out there are not interested in the natural tree. You want a tree that doesn't require water, doesn't shed needles everywhere, and that you only have to buy once. Don't worry artificial tree crowd: we've got you covered. This beautiful gold tree stand not only looks good and will keep your tree steady, it also rotates for an extra special something.

The best budget option

While most of our tree stand options are upwards of $60, you don't have to shell out to get quality. This Cinco Express tree stand can hold most smaller trees (anything up to 8 feet), and it's only $20. You won't be putting any gargantuan trees in it, but it's a solid choice for a reasonably sized home tree.

A simple stand for artificial trees

Our second option for artificial trees comes from the National Tree Company, and this is the choice for you if you don't need rotating, fancy gold stands, or any other bells and whistles. It's a good tree stand that won't break and will keep your tree where it needs to be. This company has been around for over 60 years, and that experience shows in the quality of their product.

The simple rotating stand

Of course if you do want a rotating tree stand but you don't need it to stand out, we've got choices for that too. This unobtrusive green stand won't draw focus from your beautiful tree, but it will give you the option to rotate your tree. It also powers the lights, so you can choose to have lights on, lights on and rotating, or off. It's a pretty sturdy base as well, holding up to 80 lbs of artificial tree.

No set up required

If your storage plan for Christmas is "throw it in the garage and forget it", we have found you the correct stand. You won't lose any pieces, nothing will get broken or disconnected, and it's easy to find next year. It's also good for trees up to 10 feet tall and hold 1.5 gallons of water, so you're set for this year too. A solid choice for any tree.

Last but not least

Our final option here is a lovely rotating option for artificial trees up to 7 feet tall. A great feature of this one is that it comes in four different colors so you can match your decor no matter what. Most artificial tree stands are fitted for a single size, but the best part of this one is that it allows for three different sized trunks.
