• We usually do 100 lights per foot. I think our tree is 6 1/2 or 7 feet tall and we have around 6 or 7 boxes of 100 count lights.

• I have a 7 foot tree that I put 4 strands of 200 lights on, 800 lights all together which means that it gets 150 lights per foot. My MIL gave me a tip of what she used to do but I already had my lights. I forget what they're called but she took those nets of lights that people sometimes put on their bushes outside and she wrapped her tree with it. We like lots of lights.

• I like to wrap some inside the tree and some outside so you get the light all the way through, and I think it comes out to about 150 per foot. My tree is normally 6' at least, so we use a lot of lights!

• Our tree is 7ft we usually use four boxes of 100 lights per foot.

• Oh lol I guess I should add sometimes mine is up to 250 lights per foot because of how huge around my trees normally are lol. They normally are at least 5' wide at the base lol.

• I just reread what I wrote last night and I realize I said that I put on 150 lights per foot when I ment to say that I put about 115 lights per foot on. That's what happens when I keep trying to answer when I really need to go to bed. LOL!!! I was also thinking about almost doubling the lights which might have messed up the numbers in my tired brain too. LOL!!! Ooopps!
