so... who else is making a tree? i plan to make one, but i'm stuck on a few logistical concerns, mainly around how to secure it. my tree will hopefully use a real tree trunk, from a fairly small tree, as it's base. how the heck am i going to make it stand up? the obvious would be to dig a post-hole and shove a good amount of the trunk down it, but we all know that's a no-no. if any of you are making trees, how will you make it stand? i'd really like to avoid using guy lines.. people need to be able to walk right up to my tree, and move all around it without obstructions. thanks for any ideas or input you can provide!
