We have installed your tree in a stand which holds enough water for every inch of diameter of the trunk after the tree is in the stand. The best way to minimise needle loss and ensure satisfaction is to follow these simple care tips:
Keep the stand full of water at all times, using plain tap water only. Check the water level daily.
Make sure the Christmas tree is well away from radiators and other heat sources as this will speed up water evaporation and moisture loss from the tree.
Please note that it is part of the life cycle of the conifer tree to shed needles, which is accelerated if allowed to dry out.
Real Christmas trees continue to benefit the environment after the holiday season is over because they are easily recycled into mulch. The mulch then decomposes, providing the nutrients plants need to thrive.
