How To Keep Your Christmas Tree Healthy

by Paula Broome, Dec 2017

When you buy your tree, cut an inch off the base so the tree can take up water. (Be sure the cut is straight so the tree will stand up properly)
If you don’t plan to put the tree up straight away, place the tree in a bucket of warm water and stand it in an unheated garage or porch away from the wind and cold
When you bring your tree inside, use a stand that holds at least three to four litres of water.
Keep your tree well-watered. Water prevents the needles from drying and dropping off and maintains the fragrance.
Never let the water level fall below the base of the tree.
Don’t add anything to the water. Though some people swear that throwing in such extras as aspirin, soda water, bleach, salt, sugar, or Karo syrup keeps trees fresher longer, the experts say plain water, and plenty of it, is best.
