10 Tips for Picking the Perfect Christmas Tree
If you want to rock around the Christmas tree, make sure you select the right one. Follow these 10 tips on how to pick the perfect tree and keep it looking great all holiday long.
Size It Up
Measure the height of the room in which the tree will be on display, and the width of the stand. Then bring the tape measure to the farm or garden centre.
Shake it First
Give the tree a shake and run your fingers along the needles. If it starts to shed excessively, just imagine the mess it will leave on your carpets.
Keep an Eye on the Cut
Make sure there’s a fresh, straight-across cut on the bottom of the trunk. This will help the tree sit properly in the stand and absorb lots of water.
Work From Top To Bottom
Test the lights to make sure they work, then string them evenly around the tree, working from top to bottom.
