How Do I Care For My Tree?
The three Ws of tree care are: WATER, WATER, WATER.
A tree will absorb as much as a gallon of water or more in the first 24 hours after it is cut down and one or more quarts everyday after. Before placing your tree in the stand, cut at least 1/4" off the base to remove sap and allow absorption of water. For maximum beauty and safety, use a tree stand that holds a gallon of water. Refill daily. Maintaining a steady water level will keep the tree fragrant, prevents the boughs from drooping and the needles from drying out and dropping off.
Place your tree away from fireplaces, radiators and other heat sources that could dry your tree out. A fresh tree containing adequate moisture will NOT support a flame. Do not allow water level to drop below the trunk bottom or a new sap plug will form.
