    Default First owner of a mega tree have some newbie questions

    I got a 12.5 foot mega tree from holiday coro with everything to get up and running . I am going to use black pipe for the center pole. I look at there description and few measurements kinda lost. If I am building a 12.5 foot tree tall 6.5 feet wide and leave a 6in gap at the bottom since I live in florida I don't have to worry snow or build up of water where I am installing it. Am supose to go with 12.5 feet of black pipe or should it be longer

    No, longer. Need room for a star on top and even you did not top it, you can leave extra sticking out. If you have too much, you can always cut it down to size.

    What about the Ground? How are you supporting it? Portable hole? You will need something.

    Yes very important on length if you plan on placing the pipe in the ground for support. On my tree that size, I use a concrete slab with a wood center that I can screw a pipe flange to it and secure with lag bolts.

    Portable Hole IMHO is the best, that way you are not restricted to only one place for the Tree.
    I moved my tree a couple of time when changing my display every year.
