FLOCKING

Flocking is the process of adding artificial snow to a Christmas tree.

Yes, we do! It takes approximately 2 hours so if you call ahead with an idea of how large you want the tree to be, we can select for you and get started OR you can stop by and hand-pick the tree yourself.

Ruby Red, Snowy White, Pretty Pink and Moody Blue.

Cost depends on color and is calculated per foot. White is $7.00/foot. Red, Blue and Pink are each $10/foot.

CHRISTMAS TREE TIPS

  1. Pick where you want it to stand (make sure to stay away from heat sources such as TVs, fireplaces, radiators and air ducts).
  2. Measure the height and width of space.
  3. Buy it early for best selection.
  4. Determine if it must look perfect from all angles. If it needs to look perfect from all angles, the price goes up. Decide early.
  5. Make sure that the base of the tree is straight and 6-8 inches long so it will easily fit into your tree stand.

WATER, WATER, WATER! This is the number one thing you can do to ensure a fresh tree that will stay healthy the entire holiday season. For the first few days, water your tree with up to one gallon of water per day.

There are fun solutions that help you water! We sell little spouts that you can hide in the branches, allowing you to covertly and conveniently add/monitor water for your tree.

Contrary to popular myth, a fresh cut live tree is NOT a fire hazard when kept watered. It has been shown in tests that an artificial tree will support a flame but a fresh live tree that is kept watered will NOT.

If you cannot set up your tree the same day it is cut, then place it in a pail of water in the garage/basement until you are able to put it up. This is one of the most important tips because if a tree sits dry for more than 12 hours or so, the little pores on the cut end of the trunk seal off with sap and your tree can’t soak up any water.

If more than 24 hours pass before you can get your tree into water, you can still give life to your tree. Simply cut a thin (1/4 inch) slice off the bottom of the trunk; this fresh cut allows the pores to open and once again lets the tree trunk absorb water.

A freshly cut tree will last for several weeks without any preservatives if it is kept watered. However, studies have shown that preservatives prolong the freshness of your tree and we do have them available for purchase.
