Fresh Cut

With proper care, you can maintain the quality of tree throughout the Christmas season. Below are helpful hints and tips to extend the life of your Christmas tree:

Make a fresh cut
We remove at least a ½ thick disk of wood from the base of the trunk. 
The cut should be perpendicular to the trunk – not cut at an angle.

Place the tree in water as soon as possible 
When you purchase your fresh tree at the farm, over half its weight is water. Maintaining
Don’t bruise the cut surface or get it dirty.

Use a large enough tree stand for your tree
Do not ‘whittle’ down the sides of the tree to fit the stand.  The outer layers of the tree are the most efficient in taking up water and shouldn’t be removed.

Keep your cut tree away from sources of heat
This includes fireplaces, heaters, heat vents, and direct sunlight.

Check the water level each day
Be sure that the water level does not go below the base of the tree.
