Christmas Tree Setup & Care
One of the most important things to do is to cut an inch or more off the trunk of the tree just before putting it in water.
When a tree is cut, if left for more than a few hours without water, the tree will form a seal of sap around the base. Once it does that, it is almost impossible for the tree to take in water, which it needs to remain fresh.
If you do not intend on bringing your tree in the house and set it up in a stand with water, you will want to place the truck in a bucket of water in a cool place, out of the sun until you are ready to set it up.
Christmas Tree Safety
Do not put your tree near a heat source in that it will draw moisture from the tree and will cause it to dry out faster.
Check all electrical cords and lights to insure they are in good condition. Discard any that are not.
Do NOT use real candles on the tree.
The safest tree is a fresh tree and the best way to keep your tree fresh it to give it plenty of water. Be sure to check your tree stand to insure it has water in it every day.
Christmas Tree Recycling/Disposal
Tree recycling is good for the environment.
Most communities will pick up your tree as part of a vegetation program.
