- Decide if you want the lights in the tree, or you want to use the tree as an anchor point like mentioned above.
- If you want the lights in the tree you’ll have to measure or guesstimate the meters you want to light.
- Measure the distance from your power to the tree. (You may need an extension cable, we have these)
- Choose your festoon lighting. (Tip get shatter-proof LED bulbs because in rough weather your bulbs won’t smash like glass.)
Another way you can light your tree is with…
Garden lights are great for lighting trees because they are highly versatile lights.
You can put the lights in the ground and have them shine up the trees. Or you can put the lights in the trees themselves. How do you do put the lights in trees?
With some garden spike lights, you can take the spike part off, then put the light component into the tree. Done like this, you can mount the lights at different heights in the trees.
The lights can then shine upwards in the trees, or you can shine the lights down the tree trunk. This gives the trees a beautiful night time effect.
A 3Watt or 7Watt garden light gives you plenty of light for most trees.
And what’s great about using a simple garden light to light your trees is, they are quick, easy, and a cost-effective way to create beautiful trees of an evening.
