How Do I Care For My Christmas Tree

How Do I Care For My Christmas Tree

Image titleHow do I care for my Christmas tree? 

So I have a real Christmas tree, now what? Here are some basic care tips for keeping your real tree safe and beautiful:

Rule of thumb when watering is 1 qt of water per inch of diameter of tree trunk. Your stand should be able to hold about a gallon of water. Check the water daily, the tree drinks a surprising amount of water!

Your tree should last 5-6 weeks. It can dry out quicker, or could last longer, just pay attention.

The temperature of the water doesn't matter. 

Keep your tree away from heat sources; fireplaces, furnaces vents, candles, etc.

Use low heat bulbs and do not overload electrical circuits. 

When you are ready to take your tree down, do not burn it in a fireplace or wood-burning stove. You can take it to your local recycling facility.

For many much more helpful information, check out National Christmas Tree Association website.

Wishing you a safe and happy holiday season!
