Precut Tree Care

It’s the time of year again to find your perfect Christmas tree and take it home… but how do you make sure your tree stays in tip-top shape throughout the holiday season? Below are some simple but important tips to keep in mind when you bring your tree home this year.

1. Put a fresh cut on it. Feel free to ask one of our tree & shrub crew to take a couple of inches off the bottom, they don’t mind and your tree will thank you for it!

2. Get it in a bucket of water as soon as you can. Your tree will soak up A LOT of water, especially in the first couple of days. It’s important to make sure you keep refilling the bucket as needed to keep your tree happy.

3. Keep away from fireplaces. This will dry out your tree!

4. Enjoy it! Every tree is different… and once the ornaments are on it they all look amazing.

Concerned about needle shed? Don’t worry… this is a very natural process! All evergreen trees lose about a third of their needles every year, which happens from the inside out where there is less air, sunlight, and circulation happening. Once we get your tree through the bailor, most, if not all of that shed will be removed… but don’t be surprised if you find needles dropping here and there!
