Tips For Keeping Your Christmas Tree Fresh

Real Estate Broker/Owner with THE TEMPLE TEAM

Make a Fresh Cut When You Get Home ...

After a tree is cut it immediately begins to seal up again so when you get home - right before you put it into the tree stand - make a fresh cut by cutting off about one inch to allow it to absorb lots of water once it's in the tree stand.


Choose a Nice Cool Spot ...

Choose a spot away from direct sunlight and away from the fireplace and direct heat source to keep it from drying out faster.


Feed It ...

Some people believe that adding corn syrup to the water or even an aspirin will help the longevity but it's not for sure and totally up to you. Most people believe that just plain water works just fine. Keep it filled up! Some trees can "drink" up to a gallon of water per day!
