I've used spring type clothespins by clipping the pin around the 
"trunk" immediately above a branch, and resting the pin atop the branch 
so it  pushes it horizontal.  Picture clothespins sticking out 
horizontally around the tree directly from the truck, with branches 
constrained to be beneath them, also nearly horizontal where they join 
the central leader.
