Tips to Keep Your Christmas Tree Fresh

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, December 17, 2013

Regardless of if you have had your Christmas Tree for weeks, days, or have yet to pick it up. Keeping it as fresh as can be in your apartment in Lynchburg, VA makes for a more enjoyable tree all season long.Here are some tips on how to keep your Christmas Tree fresh and green.

As soon as you get your tree home, place your tree in a bucket of water or a water base stand.

Even though most studies have shown that trees can go 3 to 4 hours after cutting the trunk and still take up water, it is recommended that a fresh, straight ¼ inch or more cut across the base of the trunk be performed. This will insure that dried pitch or excessive dirt will not stop water intake.

Use tree stands that will hold at least one quart of water for each inch diameter of the trunk, usually about one gallon for a 4-inch trunk diameter.

Check the water supply regularly to insure the water level in the bowl does not drop below the base of the tree.

Do not place the tree near a source of heat.

Make sure light cords are in good working order and are turned off when you go to bed or leave the house.

Following these simple guidelines will insure your tree will stay fresh, green, and moisture laden through the holidays.
