How To Care For Your Fraser Fir

Choose a location
Select the perfect site away from heaters and fireplaces, which can dry out the tree and turn the tips brown and crispy. Please clear an area in preparation for your tree's delivery. Although we do provide a stand at an additional fee, we recommend that you purchase additional protection for your floor, such as a stand skirt or floor protector. 

Maintain/Water your tree
We recommend that you always keep the base of a tree in water. If the base dries out, resin will form over the cut end and the tree will not be able to absorb water and will dry out quickly. You don't need anything other than regular tap water - drying out deters future water uptake and will require a new cut. Trees are thirsty. They may drink up to a gallon of water per day, so be sure to check daily! Please note that while Fraser Firs have the best needle retention, some needle loss is still normal.

Decorate your tree
Have fun decorating your tree as you see fit! We recommend that you use miniature LED lights as they are energy efficient and do not give off heat, which could dry out the tree. 

Prepare to say goodbye
If you choose EZ Tree's Christmas tree disposal service, we ask that you please remove all lights and decorations from your tree prior to pick-up and safely store them until next year!
