The best thing you can
do for your fresh tree is give it plain water...and lots of
it! Whether your tree is delivered or you purchase your tree on
the lot, we will send your tree home with a fresh cut. This
will allow the tree to absorb water.
1. Place your tree in a stand
that has the capacity to hold at least 1 quart of water per inch of
the tree's trunk. So, a 6" diameter trunk should be in a
stand that hold 6 quarts of water.
2. If you are not setting up your
tree right away, place your tree in a bucket of water and store it
in a shaded area such as your back porch or unheated garage.
3. Keep the tree away from any
sources of heat, such as fireplaces, air ducts, or space heaters.
4. Enjoy your tree and make sure to
water it EVERY day! Your fresh tree will take several
quarts of water each day if cared for properly. (You may be surprised
see your tree take in over a gallon each day in the beginning!)
