Christmas Tree Options
For some holiday decorators, picking which type of Christmas tree to display in their home can be as challenging as picking the right present for a distant relative: You just don’t know what to get. But rest assured, there are many different types of trees to choose from with their own advantages and disadvantages. From small, containerized trees that you can plant after the holidays to the traditional evergreens that you grew up with to a bevy of unique, non-traditional beauties, the perfect tree is out there for you!
Long Live Your Cut Tree!
For many, selecting a live Christmas tree (and then hauling it home to decorate it) is a fun family tradition that goes back generations. The challenge is keeping your seasonal pick looking fresh throughout the holidays. Help your cut tree stay its best by keeping it moist, and choosing a spot away from drying air ducts and any heat sources, including TVs, radiators and fireplaces. (Remember, dry plant material is a fire hazard!) Here are some more hints to enjoying your freshly cut tree throughout the yuletide season.
