Anyone else building a frame for a 12 ribbon CCR tree?

Recommended Posts

how do most of you guys who have CCR trees keep it up right? and do you lean it back slightly? I'm building one and I am thinking of doing and H base stand at the bottom and put sandbags or cement block to keep it secure along with some guide wires. I just don't have a great place to secure it up against my house. I am building from the specs that frank gave out so it will be a 12 ribbon tree. thanks for any help

 

The first two years, I had it leaning against the eves of my house.  For 2014 I had to change that because I added GECE lights on the eves, so now I moved the tree about 10 feet and have a piece of unistrut that goes from the frame of the tree to one of the eves.  The tree is almost perfectly vertical.  There is a photo about half way down this page:

Mine is hanging from the 2nd story peak of the roof, and ends before it blocks access to the garage.

How close together is too close as far as spacing between strips? I am doing 16CCR and want higher resolution when using pictures and movies on tree.

 

Thanks!!
