Giant artificial trees are becoming the benchmark of cities and organizations throughout the US during the holidays. In the past, many have stayed away from using these trees because of the power consumption needed to light the incandescent giant tree.
With the introduction of LED lighting, the power needed to light these trees has been reduced to 1/7 of the incandescent giant tree.
Repair and Safety:
A giant tree goes up in sections, with the sections normally 2 to 3 foot in height. The frames of the tree goes up first and then the branching is added. Branching can be added to the lower sections while the frame is built upward.
You will need a boom lift to add the top sections to the tree.
The frame has electrical outlets lining the inside of the frame and as the branches are inserted into mounting holes the electrical power cord from the branch is plugged into the outlets along the frame.
The electrical main cords on the tree are dropped down the inside of the tree.Various method of anchoring the trees have been used from drilled set anchors, road barriers set inside the tree to water barrels used.
