Want to keep your live-cut tree looking its best throughout the month of December and into the Christmas holiday?
Tommy Thompson of Thompson’s Tree Farm in Lawrenceville said there’s one important aspect to caring for live-cut trees — keep them watered. Be sure to check water levels daily.
“You just can’t let the water go below the base of the tree,” Thompson said. “The additives works for some flowers, but for trees, you just need to keep it watered.”
Thompson said to also make sure you don’t place your tree near a heat source as the heat can speed up evaporation and lead to moisture loss — and it’s a fire hazard.
