Real Christmas trees are a holiday class. But unlike an artificial tree that you simply pull out of a box, you have to do some prep to make your right tree until the end of the holiday.
Before heading out to get your tree, read the important steps you need to take when you get home.
Make sure the cut is fresh
The most important step in setting up your Christmas tree is to make sure that the stem of the tree is cut.
It's because when the tree is cut from its roots, the slender end begins to close in a few hours, preventing the tree from soaking water while sitting in your tree stand. If it can not absorb water, it will become dry and crisp and quickly become a serious fire hazard in your home.
If you pick out your tree from a lot or farm, make sure you get at least one inch of cut bottom. Most parties and farms do it anyway, but if they do not, you have to make it fresh yourself.
Soak the tree overnight
When you bring your tree, do not bring it inside right away.
First, the tree blew into a big bucket of water overnight. The wood will suck up as much water as it needs, which will keep it fresher anymore.
The next morning, cut the yarn or net that stays in the branches and shake out any loose needles, dead branches or weakened insects. You can also drop your tree to add more moisture and get rid of dead needles.
Let it dry before you take it in.
Find a suitable place
Your Christmas tree can look beautiful near the fireplace, but do not put it there.
It's important to keep your trees away from sources of heat, including fireplaces, oven valves, direct sunlight or light, which just dry out the branches and create a risk of fire.
Safe Tree Stands
A stable tree rack that can hold at least one gallon of water will make sure your tree is well hydrated and will not fall into the middle of the night, breaking your precious fragile ornaments.
I do not say you have to spend big money on a nice tree stand, but a solid and sturdy model will last year and year.
Slide the stem into the stand and tighten the screws to keep your tree in place.
Let the tree relax before cutting
Once you have set, your branches will continue to relax and get into their last place. Allow the branches to clean completely before you start decorating. This helps to ensure that your ornaments do not slow down over time.
Use a smart plug
Never again should you come behind your tree to disconnect the lights. Instead, connect them to a smart contact – likeor – then use your phone or voice to turn the lights on and off.
