You can take a few simple steps to keep your real tree looking great, smelling great, and holding its needles strong until Christmas and beyond!
At the farm we have all pre-cut Christmas trees. When you get your tree home you will want to cut about 1-2″ off the bottom of the tree. Cut at a slight angle to increase surface area. Immediately put the tree in a 5 gallon bucket filled with water. The tree will “drink” a lot of water, so leave it in the bucket for about 24 hours.
Get your stand all ready! Here’s a stand we recommend because it has a wide base to make it sturdy and it holds a full gallon of water:
Take the tree directly from the 5 gallon bucket to the stand and fill it with water right away – never let the tree stand go dry!! If the base of your tree is dry for more than 30 minutes the sap will seal it so you should re-cut so the tree can continue to “drink”.

Did you know: Holiday evergreens are said to symbolize our everlasting circle of life?!?!
You can spray your greens with garden-type anti-desiccants to reduce moisture loss and increase life!
Keep your greens away from any heat sources – they do better in cold weather.
Here’s what we suggest to help keep your tree healthy through the New Year:
Before you put your tree in its stand cut off at least 1/4″ to remove any sap build-up
Use a tree stand that holds at least a gallon of water – refill it daily – don’t allow the water to drop below the bottom of the trunk (otherwise a sap plug will form and the tree won’t be able to drink any more water.
Keep your tree away from heat sources
