How to Care for Living Christmas Trees
Choosing a live tree to decorate your home for the holidays is a great way to get the most out of your Christmas tree. By following these instructions, you will enjoy your tree to the fullest, both in your home and in your yard, for years to come!


🎄 Acclimatize your tree by placing it in your garage or under a deck for a few days prior to bringing it inside. 

🎄 You may keep your tree indoors for a maximum of 5 to 7 days 

🎄 Each day, put ice on the surface of the soil to keep the roots cool, and tree watered. Your room should be kept as cool as possible. Avoid placing tree near heating vents & fireplaces. 

🎄 Make sure to protect your flooring or carpet from spills. A large clear saucer works great. 

🎄 Keep the number of lights to a minimum and only leave tem on for short periods of time. 

🎄Reacclimatize your tree to the outdoors. Put in a protected place outdoors (under a deck or near a building). Leave your tree there for 1 to 2 weeks before planting it in the yard. 

🎄Many of our tree's roots are wrapped in burlap. When planting do not remove the burlap but cut the twine around the trunk, so it does not girdle.
