How can I be sure that I pick a good Christmas tree?

Pick a Winner

When looking through those intimidating large rows of pine trees and assorted spruces, it can be hard to find the perfect one. When faced with so many choices many people are too busy trying to find something better that they miss out on great trees. And, second guess becomes almost second nature.

Here are some things to keep in mind that will keep you on the right track to finding a fantastic tree:

  1. Look for a tree that is a good height and will fit into the space that you have available for it—and keep in mind that the stand will add at least 6 inches.
  2. Next, take symmetry into consideration; is the tree even all the way around? You don't want to end up with a lopsided tree. Check for an even, straight trunk, and make sure that dead needles are at a minimum (the needles should be springy, not brittle).
  3. Finally, make sure that the trunk is long enough to be crammed into your stand.

Now, you're well on your way to a perfect tree.
