When should get rid of those browned, dried-out pine trees? The proper time to take down a Christmas tree is a matter of personal preference. Many people take down their trees the day after Christmas while others let theirs stay up until New Years—sometimes beyond.
There really isn't a designated day on which you should remove a tree from your home but a good time to think about it is when that thing starts to dry out. A well-cared-for Christmas tree should stay fresh well through the holiday season; some trees will last even longer than that while others will dry out well before.
Test the branches and needles to evaluate your own tree.
