6 Tips to Keep Your Christmas Tree Fresh
Keep your tree healthy through the holidays, and follow these easy Christmas tree maintenance tips.
1. Make the Cut
When you buy your tree, have an inch cut off the base to make it easier for the tree to take in water. (Be sure the cut is straight so the tree will stand up properly.)
3. Pick the Right Stand
When you bring your tree inside, use a stand that holds at least three to four litres of water.
4. Water Regularly
Keep your tree well-watered. Water prevents the needles from drying and dropping off and maintains the fragrance. Trees may use several quarts a day, so check the water level in the stand every few hours.
