Mega Tree Center Pole Material
What is everyone using for the center pole of their megatree?
I went to Lowes last night and found that despite all the warnings here on the board, PVC is awfully attractive from a price standpoint.
I can get 10' of 3" diameter PVC for $6.50.
Steel pipe is ~$20 for 10 foot (and it's not 3"!)
Rigid electrical conduit is about the same cost as steel pipe.
I was unable to find any aluminum tubing that might be appropriate.
So, $12 would get me a twenty foot PVC pole, where I'd have to spend $40 to get the same length steel pole.
There sure as hell *are* user-serviceable parts inside!
