Care for Christmas Tree

• After the tree arrive home, cut 1/2″ to 1″ off the bottom of the trunk and keep the cut level.
• Place tree in a bucket of water or a tree stand right away.
• Check water level and especially on the first few days when it will drink up the most water
• Add a few drop of Clorox to keep the water bacteria free.
• Keep tree in a cool spot and away from direct heat.
• Your local Leyland or Norfolk Christmas trees can last more than 6 weeks. Keep a few branches for your next Flower arrangement.
• Cut into sections of 3′ in length and dispose along with your green waste. Check for treecycle information.
