I want to ask people this so I know about how long it took to complete his/her tree? Plus I would know about how long it would take to complete mine.

It varies a lot. You have to consider the relative difficulty of your chosen language, any experience or familiarity you have with languages, and how much time you're willing to put into learning, among other factors.

I had studied French (with little success) for six years in elementary school before I did Duolingo and was somewhat familiar with the language, so I got through the tree in 26 days. On the other hand, I'm more than three months into German and still steadily working away at it. I'm hoping to finish up by the end of this month.

There are members who are at level 25 and are still learning, and those who are done by level 12. Neither is better or worse. Just work at the pace that's best for you and don't worry about how other people are progressing.

Some people might finish the tree in 30 days, for others it could take more than 200. It totally depends. I finished mine in about 60 I think.

This highly depends on your previous experience and whether you use other resources to learn. I started to learn French from scratch here and finished my French tree in exactly 3 months. I used other resources and studied quite a lot.

With German, it took me about half a year - almost without other resources. I had to practice more because I mainly absorbed new concepts through Duolingo (thus my German level is higher than that of French).

I'm planning to complete the Spanish tree in 3 months or less because I'm expecting and want to get my trophy owl before my baby is born :-) I only use Michel Thomas's course in addition to Duolingo, so I'll have to work hard to achieve my goal.

Another thing to consider is how much you practice. There are people who mostly do new lessons and practice little - of course, they complete their trees faster, but their knowledge is less strong unless they have a lot of practice elsewhere (or again, some previous experience of learning the language).

This discussion has the number of skills, lessons and words for each language. You can probably get a rough estimate based on how fast you've been moving through your trees so far.
