    Default 10' PVC free standing mega tree construction

    I found this website and he gives you step by step instructions on how to build one from PVC. Take a look if thinking about building one. Because of power lines I am only able to build some 6 and 8 footers but I used this as a guide. Enjoy

    I built this and it has been up since christmas on my deck and with all the high winds we have had here no problems at all. Mine is only 7 foot though. Very Sturdy. I will take pics when I get a sec

    Hmm.. I was just thinking about pouring a cement slab in my yard for my mega tree.. Now I'll have to rethink that. It would be nice to have the ability to move it around. Thanks for the link.

    just my opinion, but that looks overcomplicated

    here is the PVC mega tree that we built and used for this past year (it's a bit bigger at 15'x7')

    What are you using to connect the top, and how would you attach hooks if you wanted a standard megatree?

    We used THIS document as our guide.
    We just attached all of our strands to the 1-1.5" or so of PVC that sticks up past our circular wood securer.

    Hmm.. Thanks for the link.. that does seem a bit easier to build. Sounds like it would be easy to store as well.
