- If you can’t set up your tree immediately, put it in a bucket of water in a cool, shady place.
- Cut off a half inch from the base of the tree before placing it in a stand.
- Use a stand that will hold at least a gallon of water.
- Check the water levels often. A tree may take up to a gallon of water in the first 24 hours, and a quart per day after that.
- Place tree away from heat sources, heating vents, fireplaces, wood stoves, radiators and sunny windows.
- Check lights and cords for broken bulbs and frayed wiring.
- Do not overload electric circuits.
- Turn off lights before leaving home or going to bed.
- Remove tree from your home promptly after Christmas and recycle it.
North Carolina is the nation’s second-largest producer of Christmas trees, behind Oregon.
