Watering Your Tree & Wreath
Your tree will naturally lose moisture over time as it sits in your home, so it’s important to give it plenty of water each day. Make sure the base of your tree is always covered with water - when the base dries out, it can cause the needles to dry out as well. As for wreaths, they will need to be watered every other day or so. The best way to do this is to mist them lightly with a spray bottle filled with water.
Lighting & Decorating Tips
When it comes to lighting up your Christmas tree or wreath, use LED lights whenever possible. Not only are LED lights more energy-efficient than traditional lights, but they also produce less heat which means there’s less of a chance that they will dry out or singe any foliage on your trees or wreaths. Additionally, make sure not to hang too many decorations on one branch as this could cause the branch to break under the weight of all the decorations.
Most fresh cut trees thrive in temperatures between 45F and 75F. It’s important to keep an eye on temperature as too much heat can cause needles to dry out resulting in an unsightly looking tree. Additionally, make sure not to place your tree near any heating vents or fireplaces as this could cause further damage.
Taking proper care of a fresh cut Christmas tree and wreath doesn't have to be hard - just remember these simple tips! Water both daily, use LED lights whenever possible, hang decorations sparingly on thin branches, and keep an eye on temperature so that you don't end up with a dried-out or wilting tree or wreath this holiday season!
And probably the most important....enjoy that beautiful tree of yours!
