Decorating Outdoor Trees for Christmas

For the last several years I have been decorating a clients trees in their front yard so that when they turn on the generator on Thanksgiving  night the yard looks like a winter wonderland.
Need a bucket to lift you up in order to decorate the tree branches.

Since they like to have their trees wrapped in white lights all the way to the top of the tree, they must rent a bucket so that my husband and I can decorate the branches. There is no way to get to the top of the tree without the bucket to lift you up.  

Once in the bucket you will need to have everything that you need, while light strands extension cords and plastic clips to hold the light cords close to the branches. All trees must have a clean look, with now dropping light cords. The trunk of the tree is wrapped in white net lights.
Note the photo is not of a tree that I covered with lights, but it is a photo that will show you what I was hired to do. 

The only lights that we use for our indoor or outdoor Christmas displays are LED cool white 100 bulbs. The 100 bulbs equal 33 feet.   

Know that one tree may take husband and I several days, or up to a week  to complete, which means the bucket will cost a couple hundred to rent. Clients want certain things for their outdoor holiday display and we work hard to please them.
