Learn How to Keep Your Tree Thriving for the Holidays with A&N Lawn Service!
Fresh-cut Christmas trees are a great way to bring the holidays home. With its stunning appearance and festive scent, a live Christmas tree is the perfect holiday decoration!
Whether you’re keeping with the tradition of having a live tree or want to try one out this season, we’ve put together our top tips for keeping your Christmas tree alive this holiday season:
- Choose a healthy tree from our selection at A&N Garden & Greenhouse. Look for vibrant green needles that are firmly attached to the branches.
- Cut a few inches off the base of your tree before bringing it inside and placing it in water. This will help the tree absorb more water and stay fresh longer.
- Keep your Christmas tree away from heat sources, such as fireplaces, radiators, and heaters. This can cause the tree to dry out more quickly.
- Check the water level of your tree stand daily and refill as needed. A live Christmas tree can drink up to a gallon of water daily!
Christmas Tree FAQs to Keep in Mind This Holiday Season
Here are some important Christmas tree facts you should know before getting a live tree.
What should I consider before buying a live Christmas tree?
Before purchasing a live Christmas tree, make sure you have enough space for it in your home. Measure the height and width of the area where you plan to place the tree to ensure you get one that fits well. Also, consider if you will have time to care for the tree properly.
Can I decorate my live Christmas tree with lights?
Yes, but be sure to only use low-heat LED lights on your live tree to avoid any potential fire hazards. Always turn off the lights when you are not home or before going to bed.
Should I add a tree additive?
Some people believe that adding sugar, aspirin or even bleach to the water in their tree stand will help keep the tree alive longer. However, research has shown that plain water is sufficient for keeping a Christmas tree fresh and that these additives can sometimes harm the tree.
What kind of tree stand do I need for my live tree?
A sturdy tree stand that can hold at least one gallon of water is best for a live Christmas tree. Make sure the stand is secure and will not tip over easily.
How long will my tree last?
With proper care, a live Christmas tree can last anywhere from 3-4 weeks. That means you can enjoy its beauty and fragrance throughout the holiday season!
When is the best time to purchase a live Christmas tree?
It’s best to purchase your live Christmas tree about four weeks before Christmas. If you can dedicate the time needed to care for the tree, you could purchase it around six weeks prior to Christmas. This ensures that your tree stays fresh and vibrant for the entire season.
How do I ensure my Christmas tree remains safe?
When selecting your tree, look for fresh, green needles firmly attached to the branches. Avoid trees with dry or brown needles, as these are more likely to catch fire. Keep your tree well-watered and away from heat sources to prevent it from drying out.
Finally, always turn off your Christmas tree lights before leaving or going to bed.
When should I take my Christmas tree down?
As a general rule, most people take down their Christmas tree after New Year’s Day. However, if your tree is starting to dry out and become a fire hazard, it’s best to take it down earlier. Make sure to properly dispose of your tree according to your local waste management guidelines.
What should I do with my tree after the holidays?
When it’s time to say goodbye to your Christmas tree, recycle it! Many cities offer Christmas tree recycling programs that turn the trees into mulch for local parks and gardens.
With these tips, you can keep your tree looking its best throughout the holidays!
