Caring for Your Christmas Tree

Caring for your Christmas

There’s nothing quite like having a real Christmas tree in your home.  To help ensure it stays fresh throughout the festive season, follow our simple tips on caring for your tree.

Picking the right spot

Start by clearing a space for your new tree.  Positioning your tree near a power supply will make it easier to light and by keeping it away from heat sources you’ll help prevent dropped needles.

It’s a good idea to cover the floor underneath your tree. Not only will this help catch any needles that fall, it will protect your floor from any accidental spillages when you water the tree.

Preparing your tree

When you get your Christmas tree home, saw half an inch off the bottom of the trunk. This enables the tree to take up more moisture and stay healthy for longer.

Shop all suitable hand saws

Place your tree in a Christmas tree stand – ideally one that holds water. Whatever type of stand you’ve chosen, make sure that your tree is fastened safely and securely to prevent any accidents.

Maintaining your tree

Be sure to keep the water levels topped up in your stand, as an average healthy Christmas tree can drink up to a gallon of water per day.

When watering, be careful not to get any water on the lights and ideally turn off the power before you do.
