Whether you've invested in a fancy revolving Christmas tree stand or you're using a sturdy selection that you picked up at the local store, it won't do you any good if it won't support your tree. A strong stand that can hold your tree upright is essential to your tree's life span.
What can you do to ensure that your stand will hold your tree of choice? Why not test out the merchandise? When you head out to find a tree, bring the stand with you. Make sure that the tree trunk will fit into the stand and still leave enough room for an adequate water supply. If you have the tree with you, you can try it out with different trees and find the perfect fit.
