I wonder if the print would require less cleanup if you printed it upsidedown. Then you can add support inside between layers for the flat parts and not have to cut the bottom off.

I would think it would break off a raft or a brim mid print and fall over if it was printed upside down.
A delta or core xy might get away with it, but I doubt my printer with the bed on the y axis would do it.

Also leds wouldn't shine through as consistent if the supports were on the inside, and it would be nearly impossible to clean up the supports towards the top of the tree, of course, this only matters if you intend to put lights on the inside.
