3 Tips for a Lasting Fresh-Cut Christmas Tree
TIP 1: TRIM THE TRUNK
Normally, when you bring your tree home, it is important to trim the trunk of your tree a few inches. This will help open up the pores and allow your tree to absorb water. Luckily, at Calloway’s and Cornelius, we do this for you! To keep our trees as fresh as can be, upon arrival, we trim the base and place each tree in a stand full of water – helping you skip a messy step and make for an easy set up at home!
TIP 2: WATER YOUR TREE
Watering your tree is the most critical and important tip we can provide. Fill your tree stand as soon as you set up your tree up at home and keep it filled. During the first week, your tree will seem extra thirsty and soak up a lot of water. Check the water levels daily and refill your stand as needed. Never let the water go below your tree’s base. Making sure your tree has plenty of water will keep the needles from falling and prolong the life of your Christmas tree.
TIP 3: TEMPERATURE
Heat can greatly impact the freshness of your Christmas tree and it will speed up the drying process immensely. To maintain a fresh and lasting Christmas tree, it is important to keep your Christmas tree away from radiators, heat vents, space heaters, fireplaces, and even direct sunlight. Placing your tree in a cool room, removed from any sources of direct heat will keep it nice and happy.
