How tall is the tree? How big is the crock? Are you planning to use the crock again?
The ideas about using pea gravel seems like the way to go. If you need ever more weight you can add water.
Put rocks and then smaller stones in it. I’ve done it with a real tree too. Works good. I had everything in my back yard so it was easy!
You could try putting rocks around the base
Have someone hold it straight and fill with pea gravel. One bag should do it for under $4 at Home Depot. Just rinse before you use they usually have a little bit of dirt on them.
If your crock is big and you can fit a tree stand inside the crock then I would use a tree stand.
The stand won’t fit and it’s a permanent stand
Are you saying the tree stand is permanent and it won't fit in the crock? Looks like you either need to take the stand off or get a bigger crock. The idea sounds good. Good luck.
