We all love the smell of a real Christmas tree, which is why so many people choose them to celebrate the festive season
Why buy a real Christmas Tree?
Did you know real trees use about ten times fewer materials and five times less energy than artificial trees – and they smell of Christmas! By dealing directly with the grower you are assured of high-quality ‘farm fresh’ Christmas trees at very competitive prices. Plus, because all come from our plantation, they are a sustainable source which means you won’t be harming the world’s forests.
Tips on caring for your real tree
To display the trees indoors, use a stand with an adequate water holding capacity for the tree. As a general rule, stands should provide 1 quart of water per inch of stem diameter. Devices are available that help maintain a constant water level in the stand.
Stand your tree close to a power socket for the lights, but well away from radiators, heat dries the needles out, which can cause them to drop.
Check the stand daily to make sure that the level of water does not go below the base of the tree. With many stands, there can still be water in the stand even though the base of the tree is no longer submerged in water.
Never burn any part of a Christmas tree in a wood stove or fireplace.
