Freshness... see for yourself:

  • Give the tree a small shake. A few falling brown needles are common, but falling green needles warn that the tree is dry.
  • Gently grasp a branch and pull it toward you. Only a few needles should come off in your hand if the tree is fresh.
  • Avoid trees with stiff needles that are losing their color.

Keep it fresh:

  • When you get your tree home, cut 1/4 - 1/2 inch off the end and put the tree into water immediately.
  • If you are not ready to put your tree up right away, keep it in a cool and shaded area such as a garage or covered porch.
  • The single most important thing you can do to keep your tree fresh is to water, water, water! ( A fresh cut tree may take up as much as a gallon of water on the first day and a quart or more on the days following. )
  • Display your tree in an area away from heat sources, such as registers, radiators and fireplaces.

Keep it safe:

  • Use newer model lights with in-line fuses to avoid overloading.
  • Display your tree away from sources of fire or heat, such as fireplaces and candles.
  • Always turn off tree lights when away from home and before going to bed.
  • According to the National Fire Protection Association, Real Christmas Trees are involved in less than 1/10 of one percent ( 0.1% ) of all residential fires.

Environmentally Friendly:

  • Every acre of Christmas trees on a farm creates enough oxygen for 18 people!
  • Real Christmas trees help filter dust and smog from the air and help stop soil erosion.
  • Real Christmas trees provide a comfortable habitat for a wide variety of wildlife.
  • After the holidays, Christmas trees can be recycled and used for a wide variety of purposes including bird feeders/ shelter, fuel chips and mulch.
