You know each "loop" will be roughly 15 inches (even though I assume you're going to spiral them up the tree and not just wrap in circles). Figure out how much spacing you want, and just do the math. But since strands come in pretty fixed lengths, you might just want to decide on a set number to use, and adjust your spacing to that total length.

If the tree is 15" in diameter, multiply that times pi (3.1416) to determine the circumference. Each loop will be ~47.124" long.
