Tony’s Tips:

Different trees have different needle retention. Longer-lasting trees include Concolor, Noble fir and Fraser fir.

Make the cut on a fresh tree just before you put it in the stand to ensure longer freshness.

Use very warm water in a tree stand to start.

Check water level in the morning and evening to be sure you have enough.

Keep poinsettias – which are tropical plants – in warm areas. Don’t let them sit in a car on a cold day, water with warm water, and keep them near some direct sun.
