Default Landscape Lighting for BIG Trees

We are considering putting lighting in some large trees (40'tall and 60'
width) in our yard. We live in Tulsa, OK if that matters. I am working
on putting in an irrigation system and while the ditches are there,
might as well put in some power to the trees for lighting.

I prefer to not mess with the low voltage lighting and transformer -
prefer to just use the 110v comming straight from the house (using 12/2
UF cable). I am not opposed to using a trasformer, but it will be
easier for me to just use 110v.

Can anyone recommend outdoor lighting for the trees - would like some to
be pointed up and some pointed down to the ground.

Thanks!

Some idea of ​​the landscape lighting design should beautify you and your house. If you have an arbor or arch, you can try some uplighting good highlights.
