• Keep it hydrated
    - Cut trees can drink a whole bowl of water a day!
    - Check every day and keep the bowl of your tree stand full of fresh water.
    - If a tree goes dry for too long, the pores on the trunk will close up and it will stop soaking up water even after you re-water it - and that means the tree dries out faster.
  • Add preservative
    - All natural Christmas tree preservative helps keep the trunk's fibers soft & the pores open so it'll continue to drink the water.
    - Just add 2 tablespoons of the preservative to each bowl of water.
  • Keep it cool
    - Keep trees away from fireplaces, air vents and heaters. That extra heat and dry air will make the tree dry out faster.
    - Consider using LED string lights, which are cool to the touch, rather than old lights with Edison bulbs that get hot.
  • Make sure clean up is a breeze
    - Place a large plastic bag under your tree when you put it up.
    - After the holidays (after you remove all decorations) pull the bag up and around the tree before carrying it outside.
    - The disposable Christmas tree bag prevents the tree's needles from getting everywhere as you take the tree through the house.
