Picking and Maintaining The Perfect Christmas Tree

12/10/2019 (Permalink)

When Picking Your Tree:

  • Check the trunk for stickiness
  • Check limbs for flexibility
  • Tap trunk of tree on the ground, if a lot of needles fall off, it's not a fresh tree

Maintaining Your Tree:

  • Cut 2" off of the trunk to get to the "Fresh Meat" so it can soak up water (DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP)
  • Make sure the water in your tree stand stays above the bottom of the trunk
  • Once the trunk is soaking in water, there should be no reason to refill the stand

A real Christmas Tree can fill your home with the smell of Christmas however, properly hydrating your tree is one of the most important parts of preventing Christmas tree fires! Please keep this in mind when searching for that perfect tree!
