Caring for Your Christmas Tree

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

There’s no substitute for a live Christmas tree. Unfortunately, a real Christmas tree can quickly turn brown and sickly with improper care. Here are a few tips from the National Christmas Tree Association for caring for your Christmas tree:

  • Buy a fresh tree. Tip: If the needles are falling off the tree, it’s not fresh, so don’t buy it.
  • Use a tree stand that can store water, and make sure the tree always has water. The way to do this is to check the water level every day.
  • Don’t cut or whittle the trunk in order to make the tree fit the stand.
  • Keep the tree cool. Don’t put it up near heaters, heating vents, radiators, bright lights, or the fireplace.
  • Keep the tree out of direct sunlight. This causes it to dry out faster and die.
  • Limit the amount of time the lights are switched on when on the tree in order to keep it from drying out.
  • Don’t leave the tree up too long. Take it down right after Christmas. A dry tree can become a serious fire hazard.

Proper care will keep your tree green and fresh all season long.
