CARE OF CUT TREES

Freshly cut trees will keep well if properly cared for.  Most important is to keep them well watered.  Unless you can place the butt of a freshly cut tree in water right away, slice off 1/2'” of the butt to expose fresh wood to the water when you do put up your tree.  The tree will use a lot of water right away, so monitor the water level carefully.  Keep the tree in a cool and not too dry room, if possible.  There are various chemicals on the market that may help to prolong the life of the tree.



What Type of Tree Should We Pick?  


Noble Fir  The most popular tree for a Christmas tree for many years.  It holds its needles well for extended periods, and stiff branches for good support of decorations.  The color of the needles is a soft green.

Douglas Fir  The tree that started the Christmas tree industry.  For many years the number 1 tree in sales.  Still a good choice for the traditional Christmas.  It also holds its needles well and the branches support a reasonable load of decorations.

Grand Fir  Very popular for its fragrance of “Christmas”.  The very shiny needles on top contrast with an almost white color on the reverse side.  The branches are somewhat limber and do not support much weight.  Care must be exercised to keep water on the tree, as it will loose needles if left to dry out.

Nordmann Fir  Introduced because of its disease resistance, it has become very popular because of its ability to hold its needles well.  The very needles are very shiny on top and again whitish on the bottom.  In appearance, the tree looks like a cross between a Noble for and a Grand fir.
