I did a little research on the Internet before my unlit tree arrived this year. The secret seems to be to wrap the light string around the branches---which also helps to light up the tree from the inside and give it a "glow." There are some YouTube videos (including one from Bronner's) that demonstrate how. I did mine that way, and I only had to tie down the wires in a couple places where I plugged a new string into the previous string, in order to hide the plugs back toward the trunk. Plan on using plenty of lights if you do it this way.
