Yes, you read it right lol. A couple of years ago I was able to get a 9ft Christmas tree from Walmart for $30. It's gorgeous. We have cathedral ceilings so in some parts of our living room, the tree fits with no issues...but I think this year I want it back in the corner of the room (where the ceiling is considerably lower) to save space and so I only have to decorate one side of the tree lol. I know it wont fit in its current state so I'm considering cutting off a significant portion of the metal rod that goes into the stand (the bottom portion that has no branches) to make it shorter. Anyone ever done anything like this before? I can't imagine it not working...my only concern is that it will cause the first row of branches to be a lot closer to the floor but I honestly don't think that would look bad. I considered cutting some of the top portion of the tree off but I feel that would be a lot more noticeable and possibly look ridiculous. Any input? I'd really prefer to not buy another tree.
