How to string Christmas lights in tall pine tree?
Weíll be putting up lights for the first time at this house this year. We have a big spruce/pine tree in front thatís as tall as the house, but not very wide; maybe 8 feet at the base. I donít think it could really support a ladder. I have seen lovely lights in similarly tall this trees in my city, but for the life of me, I havenít got a clue how they got up there.
Should I use a weight & string to pull up the upper end & then drape them around? Is there usually a long pole involved? Anything at the business end of said pole? Is there a special tool I donít know exists? Google and the forum search havenít helped, and I donít feel up to high-jacking a power company cherry-picker truck to do the job.
