standing on a 16ft stepladder and using a 16 foot pole, you still can't reach the top. This project requires renting a boom from a rental company, probably a 45foot straight or knuckle. It costs around 650 per day here for everything including delivery. I would charge 2500 to light that tree with 10,000 mini-lights. and that is probably cheap. but a really cool looking tree when done.
