Follow these simple steps to ensure your living Christmas tree remains healthy & happy!
  • Leave your tree outside as long as possible before you bring in to decorate. While it is outside, make sure you keep it moist and out of direct hot sunlight.
  • Do not set the tree near a heat source such as a fireplace or heater vent. You can set the pot inside a larger container or tray to protect your floor from water damage. You can even water with ice cubes which will also help keep it cooler.
  • After Christmas Day, put your tree back outside. It will need time to acclimate before you plant it. Put it back in a place where it will be out of direct sunlight and keep the pot moist.
  • Pre-dig your hole. The hole should be twice as wide and not quite as deep as the root ball size. You can amend the existing soil with 30% compost. Cut away the burlap from the trunk and top of root ball.
  • Water your tree and keep an eye on it. If you do not get a lot of rain, you will want to regularly water your tree to help the roots grow, until the tree establishes itself, and you can enjoy it for years to come.
