Keep Your Christmas Tree Cool and Moist

If you want to get the most out of that gorgeous blue spruce, take good care of it. The lower the temperature and the higher the humidity, the longer a freshly cut Christmas tree will stay looking beautiful.

  1. Turn down the temperature in your home so that it is as low as possible while still providing a comfortable temperature for you and your family.
  2. Keep the tree out of close range of heaters, fireplaces, or areas where it will be exposed to lots of sunlight.
  3. Set up a humidifier in the room where the tree will be placed (portable ones are adequate).
  4. To keep your tree moist, it's smart to place a tree bag around the base of the tree before putting it in the stand.
