Maybe the inclusion of a white LED unit and a colored LED unit was what convinced you to buy the white Christmas tree in the first place. Whatever your reasons, you want to make sure the tree will last for years to come by properly storing it.

The trees from come with their own storage bag. Carefully disassemble the tree, gently folding down the branches, before storing it away for the year.

Don't stack anything on top of the white Christmas tree.
