Man, the joy of a real Christmas tree! The scent of fresh pine from a freshly cut tree, merrily decked out. Not to mention the beautiful lights and how good it looks in the front window of your home. Of course, after finding the perfect tree, you want to do what is necessary in keeping your Christmas tree healthy over the holidays.
There are some easy steps to aid you in keeping it looking healthy and vibrant! The following are some tips for sustaining a fresh-cut and vigorous Christmas tree.
Get a fresh tree. The most crucial factor is to pick a fresh-cut, well-maintained, and healthy tree. Many of the pre-cut trees available in Buffalo were cut in November or late October and are brought to a store after Thanksgiving. Try to get your tree from a lot that will offer trees that are cut right on the spot.
Provide water. When you get your fresh tree home, instantly put the cut end in water. Make sure the tree never is without water. Put the tree in a durable stand that keeps no less than one gallon of water. Check the water level at least twice a day.
Be cool. Make sure to keep your Christmas tree out of the sun, as well as away from any heat sources. Make sure the tree is in a shady area.
Tree to go. Take your Christmas tree down before it dries out and becomes a fire hazard. Most arborists don’t recommend leaving a fresh-cut tree up over 21 days even if your tree is fresh and has been well-kept. There are several ways to get rid of your tree after Christmas love is gone. There are places to take your tree for compost and mulch. If you want to schedule a tree pickup, reach out to a Buffalo tree care company. They will make it to a tree recycling place for you. Just don’t throw it out in the alley!
Tree of treats for wildlife. There are several unique ways to get a couple of more weeks with your Christmas tree. Put it outside and put a string of popcorn and bird seed ornaments on it. Let your feathered buddy have a place to snack and chill.
