    Not very impressive yet, just starting to build
  1. Thanks for all of the help and links! I need to determine height. Yards in the city are rather small, so I may have about 20'x20'. I'll definitely be going with some form of guy wires - the last thing I want is the tree falling into my house, or a neighbor's. I'd probably secure to all 4 corners as far as I can. Still considering a concrete in-ground base for the pole for added peace-of-mind. Thanks again for all your help!
  2. Gregg - thanks for the info and the links - the Nevada site is very helpful. Your tree looks great! Just curious - how tall and how many light strands?
  3. I am trying to plan for a mega tree next year and have been thinking a lot about the base. I'd like to use a post hole digger and cement to create a permanent in-ground base, probably go about 42-48" down (I believe that's the frost line in Chicago). If I bury 1-1/4" pipe, my thought is to use a 12" pole pin (http://www.christmas...m/pole-pin.html) to attach the main pole each year. My question is - would the pole pin be strong enough to support the tree from the bottom (at the base)? Potentially 48 light strands at 10' (16 x 3 colors). With this kind of base, would you use guy wires?

  11. I've had some unforeseen expenses come up and need to sell some lights I was planning on using this season. The red, blue, and green C6's are all from Menard's and I believe they are full wave. The cool white C6's are slightly larger, so I posted a picture for comparison. I think these are half wave. Just looking to break even on these at $11/box plus actual shipping. All are 70 lights each. 30 sets Blue 30 sets Red 30 sets Green 30 sets Cool White All have been tested working, but never used. All but 2 are in original boxes. PM me with questions. Thanks!
