    Do you guys ever use light strands that have brown wire? Does it look bad?

    I would think it would blend in better?

    I guess I am more concerned with pine trees. It would blend in better for non-evergreen trees.

    depends on application.
    even though I haven't used it.
    will use it this year on deciduous trees.

    got some when I bought another guy out of his Christmas light business. kinda funky. I have used white and green, and most folks expect green. I have never had a complaint about green wire in trees, even trees with paper white birch bark, it is fine.

    I've always used green as well, but green wire LED strands are already running low, so i may get stuck with brown or white, i figured brown would be a better choice.

    with no green, I would choose brown over white, mainly because white gets kinda yellowy and dingy after a few years.
