N. Tru Bass: How To Care for Your 2012 Christmas Tree

 

Many West Houstonians are likely to go out this weekend and buy the perfect Christmas tree.  And some will go out and take a page out of Charlie Browns book and feel sorry for the poor unwanted tree and choose it.  Whichever you decide to do, this article will help you care for it once you get it home.

 

Water, water and more water; when you get your tree home, place it in a water-holding tree stand.  A cut tree will need lots of water, as much as 1 gallon daily for the first few days. 

 

Remove the sap seal, this allows your tree to absorb water, simply make a fresh cut one-quarter inch or more above the original cut until you reach the bark less part of the tree.
