1. Evaluate your needs.
- Measure the width of the area of the room where the tree
will stand. All our trees on the farm are trimmed so that
they are tapered and symmetrical, which means that a 8'
tall tree will be 5' wide.
2. Keep it watered.
3. Keep it wrapped.
- Leave the wrapping or netting on the tree until
you have brought it indoors and placed it in its stand.
The netting makes it much easier to get your tree
throught doors and hallways.
4. Be safety conscious.
- Locate your tree well away from sources of heat,
such as fireplaces, heater vents, stoves and space
heaters. Heat tends to dry your tree and make it a fire
Faulty wiring in your string of lights may
also cause fires. Test each string before using them in
your tree. If they do not work properly and may not be
readily repaired, discard them and purchase new ones. The
risk of a fire is not worth the cost of a string of
lights. At bedtime or when you are going to be out of the
house, always unplug the lights.
