Well I am getting ready to plan my 2011 layout. I am kinda torn here. I was thinking on 1 16 ft spiral mega tree and a couple 4ft spiral trees. Thinking about it I thought it would be cool to have no mega tree but have like 16 4ft spiral trees all over the yard. i know it is all personal preference but what do you all think.

You have to have the Mega Tree. Its the center point, the biggest, and the brightest thing everyone will see. 10 or more mini trees would also be a great added touch, but your really should keep the mega tree.

This year I'm going to invent a "mega-shrub." Short, don't have to worry about wind blowing it over so you don't need guy wires, don't need a ladder to put it up, and best of all, you don't have to worry about some schtoob snowplow driver knocking it over. :lol:

Oh, and did I mention it snowed again last night? (arghhhh....)

My first love and the reason I got into this hobby is the Megatree. It was the first animated part of my display and I couldn't live without it. But that is me. I could see a beginner starting with a large amount of minitrees layed out in a design (triangle, square, ect.) to sequence like the original Carson video (Budwiser) could be very entertaining.
