TIPS – HOW TO SELECT A LIVE OR CUT CHRISTMAS TREE FOR CUT YOUR OWN CHRISTMAS TREE
- Check condition of the needles by bending the needle gently between your thumb and forefinger. The fresh needle should bend easily, not break.
- Pull your hand toward you along the branch. Needles should adhere to the branch and not fall off in your hand.
- If a cut tree, lift the tree a few inches off the ground, then drop it on stump end. If outside needles fall off in abundance, it is probably not fresh. If old needles, which have been lodged among the branches from prior shedding fallout, this is not a sign of a dry tree.
