Looking after your Christmas tree will mean it lasts longer, drops fewer needles and stays vibrant and full throughout the festive season.
Following these simple care tips will help to get the most from your tree:
Keep the stand full of water at all times, using plain tap water only. Check the water level daily, it will surprise you how much they drink.
Water is enough for your tree. Steer clear from adding chemicals or ‘miracle growth’ concoctions to your water.
Make sure the Christmas tree is well away from radiators and other heat sources. Additional heat near the display will speed up water evaporation and moisture loss from the tree.
Fresh-cut trees like steady temperatures. Whenever possible, avoid exposing it to sudden hot and cold changes.
Please remember that it’s part of the life cycle of a pine tree to shed needles, but this accelerates 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 to the ground so that more plants can thrive. By recycling your Christmas tree you can give back to the Earth and avoid it being added to landfill.
