Cut Christmas Trees

It is essential that cut trees are fresh when purchased.

What to look for

The needles should not be dull or dried up, the branches should not be brittle and the outer needles should not fall off if the tree is gently shaken.

  • Keep your tree outside in a cool and shady place, preferably standing in water, until it is required indoors.
  • Before you move the tree indoors, it is beneficial to cut about half an inch off the butt. This opens up the pores of the tree and helps to keep it in good condition.
  • Mount your tree in a water-holding stand or wedge it in a bucket with pebbles, small stones or screwed up newspaper.
  • Place the tree away from direct heat.
  • Keep the container topped up with water every day — you may be surprised by the amount of water it needs.
  • Check the needles before you buy – if they come off easily then the tree isn’t fresh and won’t last very long.
  • Look at the base where it was sawn, the lighter the colour the fresher the tree.
