Tree Care Tips
- Use the right
size stand - make sure the stand fits the
tree. don't have the stand too big or too small and never cut the
sides of the tree to fit into the stand. this reduces the amount of
water the tree can absorb.
- Use a stand
with the correct water capacity - a tree
can use up to one quart of water per day for each inch of trunk
- Make a fresh
cut - a fresh cut re-opens the pores and
increases water absorption. only half an inch is necessary.
- Use plain tap
water, warm or cold - keeping the stand
filled with tap water will keep the tree fresh for weeks. it is
important to check the water level daily to make sure the water
level doesn't go below the base of the tree.
- Keep away from
heat sources - fireplaces, heaters, heat
vents, direct sunlight and overloaded outlets are all fire hazards.
Trees fare better in lower room temperatures.
- Always turn the
lights off when leaving the house or going to bed.
- There are 25-30 million
real Christmas trees sold in the US every year.
- There are about 21,000
Christmas tree growers in the US.
- There are approximately
500,000 acres in production for growing Christmas trees in the US
- It can take as many as
15 years to grow a tree of average retail sale height (6-7 feet) but
the average time is 7 years.
- Consumers can locate the
nearest recycling program by visiting
with any questions.
