Caring for your Fresh Cut Christmas Tree
To ensure your fresh cut Christmas tree remains vibrant throughout the season, here are some tips:
- Ask for a fresh cut of about ½” to 1” off the bottom of the trunk at Flowerland. This helps the tree absorb water more efficiently.
- Place your tree in water as soon as possible. Delaying this can hinder its water uptake, which can lead to early needle drop.
- Keep your tree away from direct heat sources to prevent it from drying out.
- Check the water in your tree daily. A fresh tree can take up to several quarts of water per day, especially at first. Never let the water go below the base of the trunk.
