If you typically purchase a live Christmas tree, you probably understand how big of an issue “keeping a Christmas tree fresh” can be; after all, the last thing you want is to have a Christmas tree that is dried out by the middle of December, with needles falling off of it and with it turning into a fire hazard each time you turn on the Christmas lights, but considering the fact that the Christmas tree is already dead when you put it up, what can you do to keep it fresh for as long as possible?
The first steps to keeping your Christmas tree fresh will take place as you pick out the Christmas tree; not only should you examine the tree closely to make sure it is the right size and shape for your house (and for your family’s preference), but you should also check to make sure no needles fall off when you pull your fingers along the branches – and then, for the drive home, you should make sure the base of the Christmas tree is covered so that the wind does not close off the bottom of the trunk.
When you get home, you should cut off at least another inch off the bottom of the tree, and should transfer it into water immediately; in choosing a spot for the tree, you should make sure it will not be in direct sunlight and will not be subjected to constant fluctuations in temperature (putting it by your heating vents is a bad idea!), as this will help your tree maintain its liveliness for a much longer time.
You will want to make sure you are giving the tree water on a regular basis, all throughout the month; if the tree does not constantly have water available, it will shut down its “drinking function,” and the only way you will be able to save it is to dismantle all your decorations and cut the bottom of the tree again – which is certainly more hassle than you will want to put yourself through!
Of course, in all actuality, you are trying to keep a dead tree acting as if it is still alive, so it cannot go on forever – but when you follow these tips, it can go on looking fresh long enough to last you until after Christmas!
