Geek Tree 2016

by Ken Newquist / December 31, 2016

The Geek Tree has grown. In previous years, that meant additional oranments. This year it truly grew higher, going from 7 feet to 9 feet as I upgraded to a new, taller tree.

The goal of the new tree was to add some more surface area for oranments and put off the day when I'll need to start theming my trees. The plan worked, but not quite as well I'd hoped; the new tree is narrower than the old one, so while we gained surface area from height, we lost some with the slimmer circumfrance.
