Tips for Christmas Trees

Tips for setting up and caring for your Christmas treeFlower Mound Christmas Trees is providing these tips to keep your Christmas tree safe, alive with a fresh pine scent and providing beauty throughout the holiday season: 

  • Use very warm water for the first watering, as that will soften up the sap and let the process begin.

  • In the first week, a tree in your home will consume as much as a quart of water per day. Check the water level every day and twice a day for the first four days.

  • If not setting up right away, store the tree in water if possible and out of the sun and wind. 

  • The stand you use should hold at least one quart of water for every inch diameter of the trunk after the tree is in the stand.

  • Make a fresh cut off the bottom of the trunk one half inch from the bottom just before putting in the stand. Keep the tree’s stand full of water at all times, checking the water level daily.

  • Don’t add anything to the tree’s water. Research has shown that plain tap water is by far the best. Some commercial additives and home concoctions can actually be detrimental to a tree’s moisture retention and increase needle loss.

  • Place the Christmas Tree well away from heat registers, space heaters, fire places, wood stoves, televisions, computer monitors and other heat sources. These will speed up evaporation and moisture loss of the tree. 

  • You should never burn your Christmas tree in the fireplace. it can contribute to creosote buildup.
