    Default Using gallon jugs to float tree top in vertical position

    Iím wanting to drop some small diameter green trees /no leaves, and have them stand vertical or at least at 45 degrees. I can figure out the weight for the base but wondering about floatation to keep the tree from lying horizontal on the bottom in the mud. Iíve done lotís of bed building just never done this particular method of floating the tops. Any suggestions for flotation is appreciated. I have a unlimited supply of small gum trees so thought about using them. Thx.

    I would use 20 oz soda bottles. 1 liter if you must.

    Was saying 20 oz bottle as it will hold a branch up right. Now how big of branch youíre talking might be bigger than what Iím talking about. If you have 1 gallon jugs then use them.

    I like to use stuff that won't lie flat on the bottom . Not sure a small bottle will be enough lift . Too big and it will take much more weight to sink . I like to fix it to a block or in bucket of concrete with cross rods to keep upright
