Light Spacing For Bottom Of Tree

Recommended Posts

I figured this by lying my bottom ring on the ground and running a string or rope around it, then stretched out the string and measured it in inches. Then I divided the length of rope by the number of light strings that will be attached.

You can also figure the circumfrence of the circle by multiplying the diameter of the circle by pi, then dividing by the number of light strings. in your example the diameter of 6 feet is 72 inches. 72 x 3.14 (pi) = 226.08. Round this off to 226 inches then divide by 24 (light strings). 226/24=9.41. Therefore each string should be between 9.25 and 9.5 inches apart.
