Eiruv Tavshilin (p. 249).

No more than two aravot are used, but many hadassim may be used. We make a point of binding the lulav in the suka and on erev yomtov.1 Two rings are placed on the lulav proper, and these should be covered by the hadassim and aravot, even the top ring, at least somewhat. In addition, three rings are used to bind the hadassim and aravot to the lulav. These three rings are to be all within one handbreadth.

Compiled and arranged by the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, of righteous memory, in 5703 (1943) from the talks and letters of the sixth Chabad Rebbe, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn, of righteous memory.

Daily Quote
The location of the Altar [in the Holy Temple in Jerusalem] is very exactly defined, and is never to be changed... It is a tradition that the place where David and Solomon built the Altar on the threshing floor of Arona, is the very place where Abraham built an altar and bound Isaac upon it; this is where Noah built [an altar] when he came out from the ark; this is where Cain and Abel brought their offerings; this is where Adam the First Man offered a korban when he was created -- and it is from [the earth of] this place that he was created
