Retail Tree Care:
Make a fresh cut.
Use a stand that will hold a gallon of water or more. Check water often and keep the stand full.
Place tree away from heat sources, heating vents, fireplaces, wood stoves, radiators, and sunny windows.
Do not overload electric circuits.
Turn off lights before leaving home or going to bed.
Remember, a fresh cut, plenty of water, and a bit of common sense are all it takes to enjoy your North Carolina Fraser fir.
