Here are a few simple tips to keep your tree fresh and fragrant for the holidays.- Salt on the roads can reach your car roof or trunk. A plastic or cloth sheet will protect the tree from salt and abrasion.
– Once home, place the tree in a bucket of water protected from wind and sun. This helps the tree retain moisture.
– Before taking the tree indoors, make a fresh cut on the trunk which will better allow the tree to take up water.
– Leave the baler netting on until the tree is securely in the tree stand. This makes it easy to get through doorways and installed in the stand.
– Fill your tree stand with water daily. Your tree will drink between two pints and a gallon of water daily. Remember that a moist tree is a safe tree.
