PROCESS OF A DOWELED TREE
The tree is cut in a strategic place on an angle.
We then bore holes in both top and bottom trunk.
A steel rod is fixed into the lower half.
Demo of a trunk and how it looks before piecing back together:
Parts are baled butt to top, shrinkwrapped and shipped as one package.
If both or either part is too large for UPS, they are baled & shipped as two pieces.
The base of the tree is fixed into its stand.
Perform this step with baling twine mostly intact.
Check to make sure tree base sits upright & firmly in its stand.
Next, remove any leftover shrink wrap and begin removing the twine.
Check for best view.
Unwrap shrinkwrap from top half.
Join the two pieces together until firmly snug, then unwrap the twine.
Check again for best view and rotate entire tree, if necessary.
Now it's time to decorate!
This scene could come out of an English fairytale 😊
A big thanks to Mike and Kathy for documenting such helpful information!
Btw, the tree is a Nordmann Fir.
