REMEMBER, fresh is best–if you don't visit us, please visit a Christmas tree farm in your area.


    When you buy a fresh tree, you want to keep it fresh by supplying it with water.  Trees are thirsty -- please make sure you check the water supply daily and add fresh water as needed.  The National Christmas Tree Association recommends that if you do not plan to decorate your tree immediately upon arrival at your home, please keep it outdoors, protected from the wind and sun, and keep the trunk in water.  It is important to make a straight cut across the trunk about one inch above the original cut so the tree stem is opened up and the tree can take in water.  Place the trunk end of the tree immediately into fresh water (some people recommend using warm water).  Keep the water level constant or you will need to make another cut to break the seal that naturally develops after the water level falls away.  Your tree cannot take in any water if the seal forms.  Bring the tree into a partially heated area the night before you decorate (keeping the trunk in water) so it may adjust to the warmer temperatures of your house.

    Further, to ensure a safe and happy holiday, place your tree away from fireplaces, radiators or other heat sources.  Never use lighted candles on your tree and do not use lights that show wear or have frayed cords.  Unplug the lights before you go to bed or leave home.
