Photos of my wire trees with 2800 lights each.

Hi Richard

I have the same HD trees you have, and I wonder will your trees with all those lights still fold-up at all, for storage? I had thought of adding 3 colors instead of just 2,but nowthink this unwise with yourconcerned with the weight on the longer lower limbs, from adding just 2 colors?

Another thought is wind, I have gotten by with only stakingmy base, but with added surface you willneed guy wires at top, but do you think the branches will take the side stress without bending?

Great looking tree pictures.

I have thought about some of those issues but I am a "Just do it and ask questions later" type of guy. :]

The tress are a lot heavier (and I was thinking of adding blue!) and I am concerned about strong wind. I plan on getting fishing line and support the lower branches though. They are kind of stressed with all those lights.

In your option do you think after adding 2 colors, will the tree stand a 3rd? When you installed lights did you do one color at a time or both at once?
