The fence pickets around the tree were placed horizontally. The closest 4X4 posts to the tree were used to place the pickets at different lengths to follow the shape of the tree. When all of the pieces were in place we trimmed the uneven pickets at the 4X4. We used a Dremel cutting attachment for the detailed angles.
We wanted to use warm colors for this pretty cedar fence which is naturally reddish. Our color choice was Behr transparent wood finish #502 Redwood. To create different shades (like a sunset) we used a clear and added various amounts of the redwood color.
