We know you’re thinking "hmm..., this is not how you place an up light". Here's the facts: Light fixtures placed in the ground are subject to physical harm by people and their environment. The Guardsman is a non-traditional approach to fixture placement. Simply mount the light on the base of the tree, ~12" off the ground and your problems are solved. Besides lighting up tree canopies it is also great for keeping fixture out of snow during the winter.
