Tips on keeping your tree fresh through the Christmas season …
Caring for your fresh tree is easy. Make sure you get your tree into water as soon as possible (most varieties can go 6-8 hours after being cut and still have no problem absorbing water). If you aren’t going to put it up right away, place the trunk in a bucket of water.
Check your tree daily to make sure it has enough water. In the first few days, the tree will go through a surprising amount of water.

Greenway Farms offers free baling for your tree. This puts netting around your tree that makes it much easier to get home. Leave the net on until after you have put the tree in its stand.
