Christmas Tree Care
For maximum beauty and safety, use a tree stand that holds 1 gallon of water. Refill daily. A fresh tree containing adequate moisture will NOT support a flame. Before placing tree in stand, cut at least 1/4" off the base to remove sap and allow absorption of water. Do not allow water level to drop below the trunk bottom or a new sap plug will form. Place tree away from fireplaces, radiators and other heat sources that could dry the tree.
