Follow These Tips to Keep Your Tree Fresh, Fragrant and Safe

Make a fresh cut.

Straight across the base of the tree, cut off approximately one-half inch before placing the tree in a stand.

Use a stand that will hold a gallon of water or more. Check water often and keep the stand full.

A tree may take up a gallon of water in the first 24 hours and a quart a day after that. Preservatives are not needed, just plenty of fresh water.

Place tree away from heat sources, heating vents, fireplaces, wood stoves, radiators, and sunny windows.

Do not overload electric circuits.

Turn off lights before leaving home or going to bed.

Remember, a fresh cut, plenty of water, and a bit of common sense are all it takes to enjoy your North Carolina Fraser fir.
