The higher you put it up on trees, the better. It makes it harder for the bad guys to dump it. I personally have a 4 foot ladder in my back seat while I’m driving around, along with 1 1/2 inch roofing nails and a hammer. When I see a good spot I park and quickly put the sign up as high as my arms can extend. I personally don’t put it on the ground with stakes. Also, don’t put too much of your sign for it will upset someone eventually. I put them at the exit of newer developments, (1995 up to now-I stop and ask someone watering their lawn), on a tree. I also put them on main streets at the stoplights where people stop and look around. Someone around my neighborhood puts up the “We Buy Houses” signs in the middle of a big drag. Not too smart for everyone is going 45 mph and can’t see the number fast enough. The goal is strategic, targeted marketing.
Hope this helps, coming from a newbie…
