We make sure your tree has a fresh cut at the bottom before you leave the farm. Once you get your newly-cut Christmas tree home, place it in a bucket of water or tree stand containing water; keep the tree well-watered. If the base of the tree is allowed to dry out, a new sap seal will form, preventing the intake of water to rehydrate the tree. Keeping the tree stand full of water will help to ensure the longevity of your holiday tree. A fresh Christmas tree may absorb as much as a gallon or more of water in the first 24 hour period and several quarts in the following days. A fresh well-watered tree is not a fire hazard!
Trees prefer to be in cool environment and out of drafts, so don’t place them near a direct heat source. It’s best place your tree away from a fireplace, wood stove, or heat vent.
To ensure a safe and joyous holiday season, be sure that you test your lights and check the cords and connections to assure everything is in good working order before hanging them on the tree. Don’t forget to unplug lights when you go to bed or leave the home.
