Harold Lloyd's Christmas tree at his Greenacres estate was assembled from three large Douglas firs wired together to make one enormous tree. It was 20 feet high, 9 feet wide and almost 30 feet around. It took from Thanksgiving until Christmas to decorate the tree with thousands of one-of-a-kind ornaments Lloyd had collected from all over the world.
His granddaughter Suzanne Lloyd writes:
One year we counted over 5,000 ornaments hanging from the tree and we still had enough left over to decorate 3 more trees just as big! Every year the tree grew larger to hold more ornaments; then one year it became a permanent fixture in our home. It was simply too large, too decorated and too engineered to disassemble. So we had it fireproofed and celebrated Christmas every day of the year!
