    I assume this is LV, right? Are your wire leads longer than 35'? Is this fixture spliced to homerun wire somwhere up the tree trunk? I'm just trying to picture how this is connected 30' or higher above ground.

    do you ground out the tree to make sure it doesn't blow up..

    that was from sunbelt... i usually tend to rent the self propeled version, but if its one tree the trailer one would do fine.... i think Home depot has them in some places. here's us on one we used for a commercial project.

    Rent a "Porta Bucket"; unless you know what you are doing, have the right equipment, saddle, spikes, rigging lines, etc. don't do it.
