    In addition to a mega tree i am planning 4-8 mini mega trees to be 6'-7'[SIZE=78%] tall. This hub I found is pretty handy. I can use a 5 way and just weight the frame down or they have a 6 way and the bottom leg you can bury the bottom part and also put a 3' steak down thru the bottom. Ill in the end use the 6 way but plan to elevate the base by adding a couple legs to the lower ring as we get snow here. [/SIZE]

    Hubs were found on the link above. All different sizes and using with pvc you could make a 3" pole. The ring is underground sprinkler hose and shapes for small rings real well. They sell it at Lowes here. Where I found it locally at least. Findinging the hubs started off by accident and i did a redesign around them.
