You and the family have bundled up and ventured out to pick out your fresh cut Christmas tree for the holiday season. Now is the time for bringing it home and keeping it alive through the whole season. Here is a list of steps on how to care for and expand the life of your tree.
1. Cut the base of the tree
Before putting your tree in a tree stand, make a fresh cut of ¼ to ½ inch to the base of your tree. This will allow the trunk to take in more water to spread throughout the tree’s branches.
