This awesome bendable "Manzanita" branch is perfect for creating your wedding trees or centerpieces. The height is approx. 28" to 31" and the trunk's base is 3/4" in diameter! Bend the branches to your desired position. Bendable Branches: These ARE bendable. You can SHAPE the branches into a wider position than the way that they arrive in the box. You DO NEED TO BE GENTLE with the way that you spread the branches open. If you bend them down too far, you run the risk of breaking branches. If you do this, you can repair and repaint them using paint that sticks to plastic. You cannot bend each branch until it is completely horizontal from the tree unless you are 1) very careful about it 2) willing to run the risk of breaking a branch or compromising the integrity of the paint finish.
