Care of Fresh Christmas Trees

Posted by sgjenna at 4:11 PM on Sep 20, 2016


  • After bringing fresh tree home, cut 1 in off bottom of trunk and immediately place in water to facilitate water uptake
  • Place tree in stand that can hold at least one gallon of water
  • Check frequently and continue to add water until water uptake stops
  • Always keep base of tree in water to prevent tree resin from sealing off base of tree preventing water uptake
  • Many fresh cut trees if properly cared for should last at least five weeks
