Today was the day. Time to install this 11-foot tall metal tree. It is built in sections, so my son, Sam and I could easily move it together. A receiver, or sleeve, was installed in the ground. It is 24 inches deep. The trunk sections of the tree are bolted together. Next, we attached the interpretive sign. Finally, the SnowFlake was fastened to the top. It is ready to go in the bright November sunshine.
