Do you have questions about How to Care for Live Christmas Tree? Here are a few tips for keeping your family's North Carolina Christmas Tree from Kathy Shore Nursery fresh and beautiful!

Caring for your Christmas Tree

  • If you don't plan to display your Christmas tree right away, store it in an unheated area like a garage or basement keeping it away from wind and freezing temperatures.
  • When it's time to put your tree up, make a fresh 1/2-inch cut at the base of the truck and place it in a stand that holds around one gallon of water. Be sure to keep the water level at or slightly above the base of the tree. Check the water level daily; if the base of the tree dries and becomes covered with sap, it will no longer absorb water.
  • Check Christmas lights for worn electrical cords and try to use lights with low-heat bulbs. The miniature variety produces less heat and lessens the drying effect on the tree.
  • Take the tree down before it dries out. If you maintain your Christmas tree and check the water regularly, your Fraser Fir or any other Christmas tree should last at least five weeks!
  • Recycle your tree!! Many communities offer Christmas tree pick up services. The trees are often recycled into mulch!
