This christmas decorate your home with a real christmas tree.Just follow below steps and keep your tree fresh throughout the holidays and reuse
the same afterwards which will serve you as a living memory for years to come.
Bring a tree from a nursery or cut on your own as some shops cut the trees well in advance and then put the trees on sale for their profits.
Check the plant for needles, move your hand across the branch if the needles fall on your hand then don’t buy the plant. Norfolk Island pine would be the best choice as it is planted as house plant.
Bend the needle between your thumb and fore-finger, it should form a ‘U’ unless the tree is frozen.
Outdoors or indoors
Keep your tree outdoors till the holidays and bring the tree inside prior 7 days for the function as it cannot be kept indoors for more than 7-8 days.
Keep the tree in a coolest place at home away from heaters, fireplaces or direct sunlight. Avoid heavy light bulbs rather use LED’s.
Do not expose the root ball to repetitive freezing and thawing.

When you bring the tree inside just saw the bottom around 2-3 inches so that the tree will absorb water.
Select a tree stand with adequate holding capacity. The tree stand should fit your teethe hole should be large enough for the stem of the tree to hold and enter.
Keep in mind to water the plant at fullest in process of transition but do not over drain the soil. If the tree dries out then it will be difficult to bring it back.
Spray water on leaves to keep the leaves moist and fluffy also place some ice cubes or flakes on leaves to keep the plant healthy. Use a tree stand that holds plenty of water.
Trees are very thirsty, help it by giving it around 3-4 liters of water every day.
