    It looks like a live tree, with three different sized tires up top. The first and third are white, the middle is either black or purple. I cannot figure out what the ribbons are made of. The bows look like regular bows. The star may be a very thin wood or plastic.

    Looks like various sizes of tires with some embellishments ...

    Looks to me like it is made of various sized tires. There appear to be an assortment of scooter tires, bicycle tires and car tires latticed together.  It seems as though evergreen is tucked into the crevices to make it look like a live tree. Perhaps the silver and gold are bicycle fenders.
    You will let us know in the end won't you?.

      Yes I promise you that I will let you know the answer tirelesstraveler  after this question quickly runs it coarse. It won't be long I promise!

    This is challenging.  I blew up the photo to help see it better.  My take on it is that it's monster truck or tractor tires.

    It seems that this Christmas tree is made of at least 7 tires of different sizes.  Most of the tires are paint silver and there is greenery between the layers of tires.  The four bottom tires seem to have some touch of burgundy on them as well.  It's nicely decorated with red and golden bows.  I love the star at the top.  It might be made of wood painted ocher with a touch of darker color made with a sponge or saran wrap.
    Very nice and original :-)  Thank you for sharing!

    Looks like it's made of bits of wheels and tyres

    It looks like all of you were correct here. This Christmas tree is sitting out in front of a used tire company. Like CraftytotheCore and DaveOnline said, it is actually composed of 8 different sized tires, and the bows are actually bows. Some of the tires are painted silver, which certainly gives them an appearance of bicycle fenders as tirelesstraveler mentioned. The tires are from cars, tractors, monster trucks, and the very bottom ones are most likely from heavy earth moving equipment. Embellishments of greenery were put in between each of the tires as tirelesstraveler, PaisleeGal, and kidscrafts pointed out. The star up on top is made out of wood as kidscrafts and The Examiner-1 stated in their answers. I want to thank you all for your well thought out answers, and your patience on me verifying the answer for this question. Merry Christmas

      Thanks for mentioning me in your answer to the question about the composition of the Christmas tree, although my answer was very short. I'm amazed at how lengthy some of the comments on Hubpages are.
