Do you need help making your Christmas tree last until Christmas?
There are some tips you need to know to keep your evergreen looking sharp all season long.
Make sure that your tree is properly wrapped before transporting it home and that the stem is freshly cut, which allow trees to gain moisture and keeps them alive.
Like regular plants, trees must be watered on a regular bases as long as the water does not rise above the cut stump and when picking a place to stand your tree keep it away from heaters or vents.
“Kind of use thanksgiving as the start and everything. They tend to get their tree and get that set up. And of course on a real tree the concern when you put it up that early is that it might get a little dry. But if you make a fresh cut, which we do for our customers and keep water in the stand they will actually stay fresh for quite sometime in the house,” Ryan Cummins with the Apple House said.
After it’s been cut the average Christmas tree can last anywhere from 30 to 45 days.
