Watering Your Christmas Tree

12/4/2021 (Permalink)

Even though plastic Christmas trees have become more popular in recent years, there are still plenty of people who prefer the scent and sight of a real live Christmas tree. They enjoy picking out their Christmas tree, bringing it home, and keeping it lush and green throughout the season. But if you choose to go this route this holiday season, it’s important to remember that your Christmas tree is a living plant. And like any other household plant, it must be cared for properly or its life will wither away very quickly. The Home Depot has a list of tips to help you make sure your tree lasts the entire Christmas season;

  • Gather tools and materials ahead of time
  • Set up stand and water before going to buy your tree
  • Get tree into water as soon as you can
  • Water daily because a 6-foot Christmas tree requires at least one gallon of water each day to stay fresh
  • Try a tree watering system
  • The size of your stand should be proportionate to the size of your tree
  • Do not let the water level in the stand fall below the base of your Christmas tree
  • Use a spray bottle to mist the branches and needles once a day to help prevent them from becoming brittle and breaking off too soon

The debate over plastic versus real Christmas trees is one that has been going on for years. And it most likely won’t be settled any time soon. But both can become absolutely beautiful if decorated and maintained with care. So if you’re sporting a live Christmas tree this year, make sure you know how to water it properly and keep it bright and green.
