These large monofilament nets have central holes and are designed to be lowered down over the tops of christmas trees. Long detachable poles are used to lift the net to sufficient height for this. The nets have ornaments attached. Once on the tree, it is decorated - without fussy hooks on needles, or risks of delicate ornament falling off. One or more nets can be used on the same tree. After Xmas the tree can be undecorated just as quickly and easily, with the net stowed for next year.

       Or just wrap up the tree in cellophane.

       If the staff can't be trusted to decorate a tree in the conventional manner, you need to seriously review your domestic employment strategy.

       We don’t employ our tree. It’s a pet.

       Tell us how cats get caught up in the net, and then strangle themselves. Then we will buy.

       Can lights not be wireless, powered and controlled by a suitable RF transmitter? Then at least the whole trailing cable could be obliviated.

       This would be even better without the tree.

       Pondering the net: if instead of ornaments one employed helium filled mylar balloons, the LED- litten net could be carried while aloft by synchronized radio controlled helicopters. Perhaps the radial spokes of the net between helicopters could be stiff, so they would maintain proper distance from one another. The entire device could move slowly across the sky; maybe more Ezekiel than Luke but still glorious. It could settle down onto trees and buildings as appropriate.

       I also thought the ornaments would be pre-loaded on the net. With a skillful casting technique, the tree would be decorated in 2 seconds.

       I thought this was to catch the ornaments when they fall (eg. if you have Chip & Dale living in your Christmas tree)
