I have a 4x4' area on top of a closet (exposed to 18-foot ceiling
area) that I'd like to install an electrical outlet. This area is
only accessible with a ladder, but I'd like to put a narrow artificial
Christmas tree there, and possibly a fountain/light later. One side
of the outlet will be run to a wall switch. Will I need a special
outlet or cover for this? TIA
I'm assuming you are concerned with contamination falling into the receptical
slots that are facing up???
You might want to use an outdoor outlet that has the little doors to cover the
recepticals when not in use.
Shy of that, you could use those child safety plug covers that are simply
plastic covers that insert into the recepticals when not in use.

I'm not clear if his outlet is going in the ceiling or the floor. If
it's the floor, it would be better to use a floor outlet cover and a
box designed to go into the floor. They are typically made of brass
and have screw in covers to protect unused sockets.
If it's in the ceiling, he doesn't have to do anything special.
