Ledit support comprend deux ensembles de roues utilisées pour déplacer l'arbre. Un premier ensemble de roues est disposé en-dessous du support et permet un déplacement classique en position érigée. Un second ensemble de roues est disposé sur le côté du support d'arbre et permet un déplacement en position inclinée. Ce support peut également comprendre un système électrique facultatif doté d'un ou de plusieurs article(s) électrique(s), notamment un temporisateur, une sortie d'interrupteur de défaut à la terre, un système de positionnement télécommandé, etc. Dans un second mode de réalisation, l'invention concerne une couverture d'arbre pliable qui peut être utilisée pour transporter et stocker efficacement l'arbre. La couverture d'arbre pliable peut être dissimulée à l'intérieur du support ou utilisée comme jupe lorsqu'elle est pliée en-dessous de l'arbre. Ladite couverture comprend au moins système d'expansion réglable à l'aide d'une ouverture élastiquement sollicitée utilisée afin de réduire le diamètre de l'arbre, et au moins une ouverture de stockage qui peut être utilisée pour stocker des articles autour du tronc de l'arbre lorsque la couverture est déployée sur l'arbre.
