I have received 40x strands of 100 bullet nodes. These are to finish out the basic design of the house and mega tree. I am estimating 800 nodes to do the eaves of the house. That leaves the overall design of the mega tree. I have a few limitations that would define the height of the tree and overall design.

Viewing distance (my side of street): ~40 feet or 12 meters

Viewing distance (other side of street): ~80 feet or 24 meters

Pole: ASAP Sr with the plan to cement a slide in base in the ground 3 feet deep with a total height between 12-14 feet (3.5-4.25m)

Design: 180 degrees with base ~0.5x of height

Planning decisions I need assistance with:

Strips to use: Boscoyo is 2" spacing which many people recommend. HolidayCoro has custom spacing which I could go to 1.5" for more density on the strip.

With the distance from viewing, which of the two would you recommend: 1.5" spacing or 2" spacing?

- If going with 2" spacing, I could do 36 strands of 75 pixels each which makes managing the 100 node strings pretty easy (~12.5 feet tree).
- If going with 1.5" spacing, I could only do 24 strands of 100 pixels each. Much easier for pixels strings. (~12.75 feet tree)
