How to Care for Your Real Christmas Tree

Watering. Being that your tree is a living thing, it has needs water to live. You will need to provide your tree with water every day and once is all you should do. Here’s a water port and screw stability base:
Trimming. Trimming your tree’s branches is a great way to keep it living and healthy as well.

If you are considering getting a real Christmas tree this year, definitely keep these tips in mind to keep it healthy and to look awesome. The best alternatives are decorating with scented wreaths or spraying natural pine tree scent daily.
