Description

Hometree Aluminum alloy wire on cast Aluminum base
22 inches across at canopy
358 strands of wire run continuously from roots to top and there is about 30 strands that have been added to top to make "leaves" from and 40 strands have been added in root zone. I average about 26 leaves per strand so I have about 10,062 leaves up there on the top. This tree took about 450 hours or so of hands on twisting wire time over four months.
I started with 5.5 foot wire strands. Construction photos here [link]
