I don't think that's ugly at all. I think it looks pretty good.

Many decades ago, my brother and I were asked a favor by one of our sisters whose whole year revolves around Christmas getting here. We were asked to get her a tree, and it was Christmas Eve, my brother's birthday. Would have been easy enough for us to do. Get her a tree by Noon or so, put it up for her, let her decorate it, "Merry Christmas Sis". But, we stopped off for a beer at the tavern, ran in into some friends, and more friends, and more beers, and more friends, and closed the bar. Guess what? No tree, and by then it was technically Christmas, no longer Eve or my brother's birthday. Not good. So, we found us one back on the edge of the woods, must have been about 16' tall, and her ceiling was standard 8', but at two or three in the morning, she got what we could see good enough to round up. We took it to her front lawn, measured off what she needed, cut it, and dragged it through her font door. What was left of it was ugly, and she was in tears for us waking her up, all tanked up, delivering the loser of all trees of all time. She worked what magic she could, making her oversized Charlie Brown tree look as good as she could, which was wonders looking back on it. My brother and I loaded up the scrap, and left her. When we saw it sober and with hangovers the next day, it was still ugly, but Sis made do. We never did that to her again. Never ever.

Your tree looks nice. And even if you don't think so, keep in mind that me and my brother could have taken care of you, so be glad with your good fortune and Merry Christmas and a much Happier New Year to you and yours.
