          Providing you don't require a GREEN tree, you might consider this tree.
          The Home Accents tree is 7.5 feet tall and is assembled from 4 pieces (including the tree stand). The stand has a unique locking system, folds into position and a lock collar secures the legs in a very sturdy position.
          The tree itself is 3 sections with the lowest section fitting securely into the stand. The base section also contains the electric cord, plug and the (foot pedal) switch. The cord is plenty long to reach a wall outlet and should allow you to avoid using an extension cord.
          Each of the upper 2 sections fit into the corresponding section and the center post provides the power connection for the lights.

          Should you wish to use a tree topper (lighted star), will need a separate extension cord.
          This tree doesn't take up a whole lot of space. I would say it fits in a 4 to 5 foot circle or less. It is a little heavy when assembled at about 45 pounds. Set up is relatively easy however, I found the white coloring gives off a little dust during assembly. Read Less
          Pros: Easy to Install, Looks Great, Nice Design, Sturdy, Stylish, lights built in, no extension cords needed, on/off foot pedal switch
          Cons: a little heavy, sheds dust during set up.

          The 12.5 foot icicle string has 12 lights evenly spaced and range from 4 1/2 inches to 6 1/2 inches in length.
          They alternate color and pattern every few seconds or so.
          Very well packaged in a sturdy box that has a measuring diagram on the front. This is very helpful in determining which set to buy since they come in varying lengths. Measure the area you want to decorate and then match that to the diagram on the box front (lower left corner). The diagram shows the total length and the length of just the lights.
          These are a little heavy compared to average lights so be sure to consider a sturdy hanging system.
          Pros: Durable, Good Size & Weight, High Quality, Looks Great, Lots of Features, Nice Design, Sturdy, Stylish

          A very nice light set to perk up your holiday inside or out.
          Each icicle alternates between 4 1/2 and 6 1/2 inches in length. The light pattern also alternates colors in varying patterns of solids to 2 colors and even multi color. Solid or flashing.
          This is the 24.5 foot string but they are available in varying lengths. Something I found very useful is on the box itself. In the lower left corner of the box front, is a diagram for over all length and of just the lights. I found it useful in determining which set to buy for where I wanted to hang them. A quick measurement for my location and compare that to the box diagram.

          This 12 foot extension has many potential uses. My favorite choice is for Holiday light decorations. It is the perfect cord for Christmas tree lights because it has 3 multi outlet plugs, spaced a few feet apart, making it ideal for a central location on the tree.
          I think we've all decorated a tree only to wind up with the light plugs in various locations. But with this cord, all of your lights should be able to reach.
          In addition, it has a built in on off switch between the wall plug and the first outlet. Also the plug is fused so over loads are protected from over heating potentially causing a safety hazard.

          The only thing missing is a remote control. But for me, that's all I need is another remote to keep track of not to mention, when you pack away the lights, should you also pack the cord with them, you have to remember to remove the batteries from that remote in case they leak. So I prefer to not have the remote. Read Less

          Upgrading your kitchen sink? Bathroom basin? You may need/want to consider using these supply lines.
          They are 36 inches long, 3/8 compression fitting at the shut off valve and 1/2 inch compression at the top to fit all standard sink fixtures.
          Flexible for easy installation and braided stainless steel makes them very strong and reliable. And because of the rubber compression seal, tightening only requires a small amount of wrench torque to obtain a leak proof seal. Typically 1/4 to 1/2 turn after the seal contacts.
          Braided supply lines are the only type I'll use.
          Pros: Easy to Install, No Leaks, Reliable, Strong

          I think it best to contact Scott's directly at their web site. However. if there is a green substance dripping, my guess would be the seed has accumulated condensation during storage.

That condensation could cause fertilizer to wash off the seed and seep through the breather holes in the bag. The coating is supposed to help the seed retain moisture after watering as well as provide nourishment (fertilize). If your basement is even slightly damp the coating will break down. If the seed has become damp while stored it likely will not germinate once planted. Read Less

Typically hallow doors have channels with gaps between. The channels give the door support. In order to get Great stuff inside those channels, would need to drill a series of holes. Since you can't see inside you can't really locate where the internal supports are located and because of this would technically be impossible to entirely fill the inside. It would also probably take several cans to do the job. My suggestion would be a higher quality door that has more filler (typically corrugated cellulose or cardboard). I would not recommend Great Stuff for this job. Read Less
