Most families have their special family traditions when it comes to the Holidays and for many that includes cutting your very own Christmas Tree. The experience itself makes memories to cherish.

Tips on cutting the Tree
Many farmers will ask you to cut your Christmas Tree low to the ground and quickly. When cut low it allows the cut to re-sprout a central leader. This in turns can form another Christmas Tree. You should never push the tree to finish the cut. When you see the tree starting to lean over, finish your cut quickly so it can fall on its own.
Tips on Tree Care
The following suggestions may help keep your tree fresh. Remember, a Christmas tree is a living thing, look after it as you would a cut flower.
- Store the tree outdoors until you are ready to decorate.
-Protect the tree from wind and sun to retain moisture.
-Before you decorate, cut a fresh cut above the original cut. Use a tree stand that is able to hold a good amount of water.
-Depending on the size of the tree, they could drink up to 4 litres of water a day. Check the tree frequently to be sure the water level doesn't drop below the bottom of the tree. If that happens and a seal forms, you will need to make a new cut.
-ALWAYS make sure your tree is far enough away from a heat source like a fireplace, heater and even your TV.
-Never leave the tree lights on when you leave the house or go to bed just to be safe.
