Here's the tree all put up. I have 4 different colors of lights (red, green, blue and clear) each with 900 lights. It worked out that I had 15 vertical sections of each color. I added some garland light of each color around the bottom. To secure the conduit to the ground I decided to use some large nails. I drove a 12" nail near the conduit, wrapped the conduit with wire and then back to the nail. Leave the bottom a little off the ground (a few inches or so), run the lights and then pound the nail to tighten everything up.
